DuPont offerings for H1N1 (Swine Flu) Virus
12
Jun '09
Pandemic preparedness containment and response plans often call for protective garments and personal protective equipment (PPE) to help reduce the opportunity for contamination of skin and clothing by infectious materials and to help reduce transmission of these materials to non-infected areas.

DuPont Tyvek and Tychem garments, when used with masks and gloves, can help reduce the risk of cross-contamination. The durability and tear-resistance of Tyvek provides excellent barrier against dry particulates. Liquid impervious material, such as DuPont Tychem garments and aprons, are used when exposure to moderate-to-large amounts of fluid are possible.

We are not aware any protective clothing material that has been tested with flu virus, including Tyvek or Tychem materials. We have tested Tyvek and Tychem protective garment materials for resistance to viral penetration from virus-laden synthetic body fluids and against particles.

Management of pandemic flu involves a combination of techniques, including the use of personal protective apparel and other Personal Protective Equipment, PPE. Consult with local health authorities before undertaking any response measures to receive for guidance that is appropriate for the conditions and activities you are undertaking.

DuPont will continue to work with medical experts and public health officials to help identify and develop garments and materials to meet these critical needs and will continue to update our guidance as more information becomes available.
