Surviving Worse Case Scenarios with HazMat Suits and Garments from DuPont
For the men and women who encounter dangerous and toxic chemical and biological substances on a daily basis, the workplace can be just as dangerous as any combat zone.
DuPont developed a range of HazMat suits and garments made of Tychem® fabric to help protect these dedicated workers against chemical and biological hazards they face on the job.
DuPont utilised rigorous testing and minute attention to detail in the development of DuPont™ Tychem® brand chemical protective garments, and these have successfully helped protect lives for 20 years. Tychem® fabrics have been tested by third party labs for permeation against hundreds of chemicals.
Thousands of industrial workers put their trust in our garments for protection against chemical and biological hazards: HazMat emergency teams and responders, workers in manufacturing and power generation, law enforcement officers, lab technicians, as well as hospital and military personnel. Whether on the front lines or behind the scenes, we believe that every worker deserves to be safe.
Specially developed to help protect against toxic corrosive gases, liquids and solid chemicals, DuPont™ Tychem® TK, is a limited-life, gas-tight suit for use with self-contained breathing apparatus.
