Tychem accessories provides protection just where you need it

DuPont Personal Protection is expanding its range of protective apparel in Europe with a brand new range of partial protection accessories made of Tychem providing protection just where you need it. These accessories, available in both Tychem C and Tychem F, are ideal for use in laboratories, the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, paint shops and also in some clean-room environments and include close fitting sleeves, standard aprons, sleeved aprons with back fastening (in the style of operating theatre gowns), and boot covers with slip-retardant soles.

Partial protection is particularly useful when an increased barrier effect is required for certain parts of the body (in addition to the protective apparel worn for a given activity) to protect these parts against a higher risk for a limited period. For example a Type 4 chemical protective suit made from Tyvek can be combined with partial protection accessories made from Tychem to protect against liquid chemicals in addition to providing particle protection in these areas or where a coverall generates too much heat stress. "Tychem accessories can provide alternative additional protection for specific areas of the body," according to Valérie Pierret, Marketing Manager, Europe.

Alternatively, combining accessories can also be economical. Where abrasion on specific areas occurs (ie.sleeves, booties) accessories can be used and replaced when worn out without having to replace the entire protective apparel.

Tychem C provides a barrier against many concentrated inorganic chemicals, whilst Tychem F provides an additional barrier against many organic and highly concentrated inorganic chemicals, up to pressures as high as 5 bar. Both materials satisfy the requirements of a bio-barrier in accordance with EN 14126 in the highest performance class.

Tychem material is ultra light, tear-resistant, abrasion-resistant and low-linting. When used in protective apparel, it is anti-statically treated and complies with EN 1149-1:1995 (fully effective from 25% relative air humidity). In addition, as it does not contain any environmentally harmful additives, the protective apparel can be safely and easily disposed of after use. If contaminated by a hazardous substance, the same disposal regulations apply as for the hazardous substance itself.
