LATEX STATEMENT: As of January 1, 2006, DuPont production specifi cations exclude use of components containing natural rubber latex in the manufacture of DuPont™ Tyvek® IsoClean® and Sierra™ garments. Anyone who begins to exhibit an allergic response during the use of DuPont products should immediately cease using these products. DuPont production specifi cations for Gripper™ sole exclude use of latex. Notwithstanding, DuPont cannot guarantee the absence of latex in these shoe or boot covers. Anyone who begins to exhibit allergic response during the use of DuPont products should immediately cease using these products. Th e incident should also be reported to DuPont.
SILICONE STATEMENT: In the past, DuPont has found that threads and zippers can be the most signifi cant source of silicone oil contamination in garments. DuPont specifi es that threads and zippers used in Tyvek® IsoClean® garments be manufactured without the use of silicone oils. Notwithstanding, DuPont cannot guarantee the absence of silicone oils on these garments. For end users with concerns about contamination with silicone oils or any other contaminants, the best practice is to audit inbound materials, including garments for those contaminants.
DuPont garments and accessories for controlled environments are not fl ame-resistant and should not be used around heat, fl ame, sparks or in potentially fl ammable or explosive environments. Garments made of Tyvek® should have slip-resistant or antislip materials on the outer surface of boots, shoe covers or other garment surfaces in conditions where slipping could occur.
