Every year, millions of Tyvek Classic suits protect users throughout the world. Whether you’re working in chemicals, food-processing, pharmaceuticals, industrial cleaning and maintenance or paint spraying, Tyvek Classic apparel from DuPont offers you safe and reliable protection, tried and tested for 150 hazardous substances in a host of applications.
Today, in two out of three cases, Tyvek Classic is the chosen protection against solid particles exposure (Type 5), and mist, i.e. low-level liquid aerosols from water-based chemical spray (Type 6). Tyvek coveralls sets the industry standard- with the best balance of protection, durability and comfort. From janitorial and general maintenance, to food processing, to hazardous material handling of mould and dust.
DuPont Tyvek Classic Xpert - Superior Type 5 and Type 6 protection
Drawing on decades of experience in the field, the Tyvek® Classic Xpert garment offers enhanced protection against a range of threats, from water-based chemical liquid splashes, asbestos, pharmaceutical and radioactive particulates to biological hazards.
It offers the wearer superior liquid protection due to its new patent pending seam technology. It passes the new stringent Type 6 test method and demonstrates greater protection when tested according to the whole suit Type 4 spray test (EN ISO 17491-4 method B). Moreover, Tyvek® Classic Xpert sets a new standard in particulate protection, with only 0.8% whole suit inward leakage compared to 5% with Tyvek® Classic and to 8% with a typical Microporous Film (MPF). The excellent design and overall ergonomic shape of the garment ensures a perfect fit and protection whilst moving, across a whole host of applications.
DuPont Tyvek Classic Plus Coveralls – the Best of Both Worlds
DuPont™ Tyvek® Classic Plus garments (model CHA5a) combine the performance of a Type 4 coverall with the durability, protection and comfort of a Tyvek® suit.
Tyvek® Classic Plus is made of Tyvek®, but the coveralls offer the added benefit of protective design features and over-taped seams. They help provide an effective barrier against many water-based inorganic chemicals in low concentration, small sized hazardous particles and biological hazards. These coveralls are ideal for occupations that require effective whole suit protection offered by a Type 4 suit because they are exposed to heavy liquid aerosols or toxic airborne solid particulates. Yet, being robust and breathable they help offer an ideal balance of chemical, particulate protection and comfort.
Tychem C coveralls (model CHA5) help offer Type 3-B, 4, 5 and 6 barrier protection against a wide range of inorganic chemical and biological hazards, yet are lightweight and comfortable too.DuPont Tychem® C remains the best-in-class protective suit when handling biological and infective agents such as Ebola such as micro-organisms, bacteria, virus and fungi, as it meets the EN 14126 in the highest performance class.
DuPont Tychem F – Strong. Robust. Trusted Protection.
Tychem F garments (model CHA5) offer the protection of a broad chemical barrier, helping to protect personnel against numerous toxic industrial organic chemicals, highly concentrated inorganic chemicals (even pressurised), particulates, biohazards and chemical warfare agents.
