INFORMATION & IDEAS
Excellent Permeation Resistance to Chemicals
Independent tests confirm that protective clothing made of DuPont™ Tyvek® provides excellent permeation resistance to chemicals.
Comfort and protection in manufacturing
Tyvek® protective coveralls meet the protection needs of numerous workplaces at the plants of GAMESA, a leading company in the wind power sector. The workers chose the DuPont suits on the basis of their comfort following a field trial of different protective solutions.

Because Tyvek® Makes the Difference
Touch any garment from the comprehensive DuPont ™ Tyvek® product range and you immediately notice the difference. Antistatically-treated Tyvek® is a unique and versatile material that is tough and exceptionally low-linting, yet extremely light and soft. It is permeable to air and water vapour, yet repels water-based liquids and aerosols, as well as fine particles and fibres.

DuPont Guide on Personal Chemical Protection
Workers can be exposed to a multitude of hazards, from chemicals, dusts, radioactive particles, fibres, dioxins and lubricants, to biological and phytosanitary substances. DuPont assists safety managers in making their PPE selection and provides excellent chemical protective garments.
DuPont Guide on Chemical Risk Assessment
There are multiple protection needs to consider when choosing chemical protective garments. Performing a thorough workplace risk assessment is essential to selecting safe, comfortable and compliant chemical protective clothing for industrial workers.
Advantages of DuPont™ Tyvek® for the pharmaceutical industry
DuPont protective garments provide reliable protection of workers as well as sensitive pharmaceutical processes and products, based on scientific expertise in people protection and unique properties of the lightweight and durable Tyvek® fabric.
DuPont Coveralls for the pharmaceutical industry
DuPont coveralls are designed for use in pharmaceutical, medical device and biotech settings where high standards for particle and microbiological contamination control are required, either when it comes to drug manufacturing, medical device manufacturing or maintenance in various hospital and healthcare environments.
Cleanroom Protection with Tyvek® Protective Apparel
Contamination protection for products and processes in cleanrooms requires effective particle barrier clothing, while personal protection from hazardous substances requires an effective defence against biological and chemical substances. Tyvek® protective apparel covers such cleanroom protection needs very well.
- Understanding Cut Protection
To facilitate the choice of mechanical (cut) protective clothing, both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the European Union (EU) have developed cut standards for selection criteria.
