DuPont has launched the Tyvek coverall, designed specifically for hot environments and for jobs where there are specifically frontal hazard exposures.
The coverall offers users the protection, durability and comfort of a Tyvek suit on the front side complimented with a more breathable SMS back.
The Tyvek substrate on the front and arms offers users an optimum protection: it acts as an excellent barrier against particles and fibres and also repels water-based liquids and aerosols.
According to the company, users are subsequently assured of excellent frontal protection when exposed to liquid splashes and very fine particles or fibres.
In addition, the SMS back features a number of sweat points which are located in the under arm, neck, back and crotch areas, with the material providing the wearer comfort due to its high air and water vapour permeability.
Typical applications include working in hot environments such as mining and mineral processing, brick ceramic firing, foundries and smelting operations, metal fabrication, boat manufacturing and glass manufacturing.
