Durable, superior protection with a big advantage – it fits.
When it comes to hazardous particulates like mold, lead and asbestos, protection and safety come first. But the best protection doesn’t matter if it gets in the way of doing a good job. Which is what Tyvek garments with the new comfort fit design are all about – the durability and protection you expect in an even more comfortable fit.
Why Tyvek® is a leading fabric for protective garments
From lead and asbestos abatement to spray painting to food processing, Tyvek garments have long been the fi rst choice in protection for very good reasons. Tyvek is an inherent barrier to particles less than 1 micron in size. Protection is built into the fabric itself. There are no films or laminates to abrade or wear away. In fact, tests prove the Tyvek barrier is more than twice as durable as microporous film or SMS fabrics.
The fit you asked for:
Professionals told us what they want in a protective garment. And they all agree, garments should fi t better and not limit job performance. That’s why every Tyvek garment with the comfort fit design:
Enables a greater range of movement while stretching and bending
Improves mobility with more room throughout the back
Provides a more tailored fit and better overall comfort
Is easier to get on and take off
Is reinforced in high stress areas for fewer blowouts
Protection that lets you breathe a little easier
Whether you’re working hard or standing still, your body generates heat and moisture vapor. The problem is that some garments don’t breathe.
They trap the heat and moisture that can lead to heat stress. Heat stress not only makes you uncomfortable; it compromises safety.
Tyvek breathes. It’s six times more breathable than microporous film fabrics. And that helps reduce the risk of heat stress, so you’re more comfortable, more productive and safer.
Science that wears well
DuPont is committed to innovating, engineering and manufacturing the materials that can keep you and your workers safer. But we also know that to be effective, garments have to fit and that’s why we’ve redesigned our line of Tyvek coveralls.
