Chemical and Biological Hazard Protection

Protected Against Chemical and Biological Hazards with DuPont Suits

The range of biological hazards is growing all the time. So is our range of Tyvek® and Tychem® chemical protective clothing and biohazard suits.

Tyvek® and Tychem® are designed for limited use. These tough, lightweight biohazard suits are CE certified up to category III , type 3-B, 4, 5 and 6 and are tear- and abrasion-resistant.

Tyvek® Classic Plus

Tyvek® Classic Plus is made of Tyvek®, but the coveralls offer the added benefits of protective design features and protective overtaped seams. These garments are ideal for occupations that require effective whole suit protection offered by a type-4 suit because they are exposed to heavy liquid aerosols as well as airborne solid particulates. Tyvek® Classic Plus coveralls are breathable chemical protective clothing – category III, type 4-B, 5-B, 6-B compliant with bio-barrier performance according to EN 14126 and have a 10-year shelf life (with the exception of antistatic performance).

Tychem® C

These lightweight yet tough garments help provide both chemical protection against a broad range of concentrated inorganic chemicals and ultrafine particles and biological protection that meets EN 14126 requirements at their highest level. Thanks to their ergonomic fit, low weight and suppleness, they help wearers handle even difficult tasks more easily and comfortably.

Tychem® C2

Tychem® C2 suits offer all the benefits of Tychem® C, with enhanced mechanical strength and a resealable closure and double cuff system. They are widely used in industrial cleaning, chemical manufacturing, and in the petrochemical industry.

Tychem® F

These lightweight yet tough garments help provide both chemical protection against a broad range of organic and highly concentrated inorganic chemicals, and biological protection that meets EN 14126 requirements at their highest level. Thanks to their ergonomic fit, low weight and suppleness, they help wearers to handle even difficult tasks more easily and comfortably.

Tychem® F2

Tychem® F2 suits offer all the benefits of Tychem® F, with enhanced mechanical strength and a resealable closure and double cuff system for demanding applications. They are widely used in industrial cleaning, chemical manufacturing, and in the petrochemical industry.
