Tyvek® 500 Safety Orange garments are mainly composed of flash spun polyethylene, providing an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort. Thanks to their nonwoven structure, they are permeable to both air and water vapour, yet repel water-based liquids and aerosols. They offer an excellent barrier against fine particles and fibres, are ultra-low linting and antistatically treated on the inside. Their bright fluorescent orange color make them highly visible.
Applications for Tyvek® 500 Safety Orange garments include mining, steelworks, power stations, site remediation, asbestos removal, recycling operations amongst many others that require extra visibility.

  • Limited-Use protective clothing, Type 5-B and 6-B Protection
  • EN 14126 (barrier to infective agents), EN 1073-2 (protection against radioactive contamination)
  • Tested to EN ISO 20471 (High Visibility Clothing) for Chromaticity and Luminance
  • Antistatic treatment (EN 1149-5) - on inside
  • Stitched external seams
  • Very low inward leakage thanks to optimised design
  • Tyvek® zipper and zipper flap for enhanced protection
