What type of material are firefighter turnouts made of?

    They are generally made out of Novax or Kevlar, and most often a combination of the two. Novax is what is resistant to flames and heat. It is able to do that because when hot, it carbonizes and thickens, creating a barrier between the person and the flames. While Kevlar is used for flexibility and breath-ability but at the same time, is also 5 times stronger than steel.
