Garment Care

Garments of NOMEX can be cleaned by home or commercial laundry or by dry cleaning procedures without loss of their outstanding protective features. The following suggestions will help you keep your garments looking neat and attractive.

Home Cleaning
  • Pre-treat greasy stains and collar/cuff lines with product such as Spray 'N Wash or Shout. Put directly in washer, do not let it sit. Remove promptly from washer.
  • Launder garments of NOMEX only with other garments of NOMEX to help avoid surface entrapment of flammable lint and to minimize static in the tumble dryer.
  • Do not overload home laundry equipment. Wash garments in warm water with a mild detergent such as Era, Tide, Cheer, Woolite... Do not use bleach or detergents with bleach.
  • For maximum fire protection, greases and oils should be thoroughly removed from garments of NOMEX after each wearing. If home procedures do not accomplish this, commercial laundering or drying cleaning is recommended.
  • Always fasten Velcro (collar and belt) to prevent fraying of the fabric used in your suit.
  • Tumble dry garments at low temperature setting or let hang to air dry in the shower or bathtub. Do not hang NOMEX garments in the sun.
  • Washer and dryer added softener/ antistatics are not recommended because they often reduce wickability (a comfort factor).

SFI Specifications

The SFI Foundation, Inc. is an independent organization, which develops implements and administers minimum standards for racing equipment manufacturers. The specification, which covers driving uniforms, is SFI Spec 3.2A.

SFI Spec 3.2A provides for testing of suits in controlled laboratory conditions. Of concern to the race driver is the approximate time a specific garment will provide protection from a second-degree (blistering) burn.

A rating is assigned to a particular type garment of specific construction. The uniforms are categorized with a Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) rating. This rating is expressed as a heat level from which a second-degree burn would probably be incurred.

The SFI 3.2A ranking, the TPP rating and the approximate time to a second-degree burn are tabled below.

If you look at the rating for the 3.2A/5 Spec you'll see that the rating is from 19 TPP to 37 TPP, or roughly 10 to 18 seconds. Most suits produced and sold with an SFI 3.2A/5 are at the lowest level of protection.
