DuPont announced the launch of new DuPont Tychem BR garment, certified to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 1994 Class 2, 2007 edition standard.

The new DuPont Tychem garment is lighter weight and less cumbersome than a traditional fully encapsulated suit. It provides increased vapor and liquid protection, is easier and faster to change into and is more cost-effective than traditional garments.

Tychem BR meets the NFPA's highest level of protection within the 1994 Standard, providing first responders an increased level of protection when dealing with chemical, biological or radioactive incidents.

“DuPont is committed to protecting lives by providing solutions that better safeguard workers around the world,” said Thomas G. Powell, vice president and general manager -- DuPont Advanced Fiber Systems. “Tychem BR delivers high-level protection that HAZMAT teams, fire fighters and utility workers need to respond quickly and effectively in dire and dangerous situations when every second counts.”

Tychem BR fabric has been successfully tested against more than 240 chemicals. It provides durability and tear-, puncture- and abrasion-resistance. In addition, the new NFPA 1994 Class 2 Tychem BR is specifically engineered for ease of putting on and taking off, thereby making it easy for first responders to complete their work in even the most challenging situations.

DuPont Tychem garments are tested against a broad range of hazardous materials to determine permeation which is critical for fabrics that are exposed to hazardous chemicals.
