Suits use in labs
23 January 2013
Developed for controlled environments in laboratories or the pharmaceutical industry at Health & Safety North DuPont will be showing its new Tyvek Labo coverall that incorporates three functions: it protects the wearer;
Tyvek protects the wearer because it has an inherent barrier ensuring protection throughout the life of the garment and is antistatically treated to dissipate electrostatic charges when the wearer and garment are earthed.
The ultra smooth surface of Tyvek repels particles.
The suit is certified to type 5 & 6 and offers 1.3% particle hold-out for particles of size 0.6 micron based on the test method EN ISO 13982-2:2004. It offers a chemical permeation barrier to many low concentrated inorganic chemicals. All these features combined maximise wearer protection. Stand 70
