Tyvek® garments are composed of flash spun high density polyethylene, providing an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort. Tyvek® is permeable to both air and water vapour, yet repels water-based liquids and aerosols. It offers an excellent barrier against fine particles and fibres (down to 1 micron in size), is ultra-low-linting and antistatically treated on the inside. Silicone non-added.
Applications of Tyvek® 500 ES garments include routine tasks in low-risk situations, or when risk is defined, in context of BSL3 or less, and low exposure to body fluids: transport of infected patients, testing, patient triage, refugee camp preparation, people rescue.
