DuPont launches TYVEK Dual Coverall

DuPont is launching an exciting new concept in TYVEK protection: the DuPont TYVEK Dual coverall. The protective garment features a front and sleeves made entirely from TYVEK fabric and a back panel made of DuPont's finely engineered advanced composite technology (ACT) fabric.

Why the new Dual garment design?
In certain industries, limited-use coveralls are worn to protect workers from hazards like water-based liquid splashes, particles, and general dirt. Traditionally, garments offer the same level of protection overall, but in some specific cases the risk of exposure may be largely frontal, whilst areas like knees and elbows nonetheless typically demand high abrasion resistance & robustness.

Applications that are physically demanding especially when combined with high ambient temperatures can make the wearing of some protective barrier garments uncomfortable due to restricted air-flow and water vapour permeability. Understanding the needs of its customers, DuPont has designed a coverall that comes into its own for highly demanding comfort requirements and limited protective requirements with specifically frontal exposures.

While the TYVEK material offers both excellent barrier protection against fine particles and fibres and repels water-based liquids and vapours and breathability, the ultra high air and water vapour permeability and tactile touch of DuPont's patented ACT fabric provides increased levels of comfort. The ergonomically designed ACT panel stretches from the back of the head down to the back of the ankles, reflecting the position of the body's sweat points.
