DuPont Protection Technologies announces launch of DuPont™ Tyvek® Plus and Tyvek® Xpert
Certified garments provide an effective barrier to range of hazards
Both Tyvek® Plus and Tyvek® Xpert garments are composed of flash spun high-density polyethylene, a nonwoven material available only from DuPont. Tyvek® Plus garments offer a variety of benefits including high resistance to abrasion and tearing. The serged and over-taped seams of Tyvek® Plus garments provide an effective barrier against many water-based inorganic chemicals in low concentration and particles down to 1.0 micron in size. Tyvek® Xpert garments have been tested to standards against light liquid aerosols and airborne solid particles, and provide an effective barrier against small size particles down to 1.0 micron in size. Tyvek® Xpert garments offer very low inward leakage due to optimized design features, with serged external seams. In addition, Tyvek® Xpert garments have a Tyvek® auto-lock zipper and storm flap for increased protection. Both products are CE certified for Category III garments.
“Tyvek® garments truly provide an ideal balance of durability, comfort and superior protection,” said Dave Kee, North America marketing manager. “The Tyvek® fabric offers an inherent barrier that won’t wear away and enables a full range of motion. The new Tyvek® Plus and Tyvek® Xpert garments broaden an already robust product portfolio from DuPont Protection Technologies and help address protective apparel needs in a range of industries.”
Tyvek® Plus garments are suitable in a wide variety of applications including nuclear, maintenance, pharmaceutical manufacturing, medical applications, and research and biosecurity laboratories. Tyvek® Xpert garments can be used in applications such as pharmaceutical handling, chemical processing, and automatic spray painting and maintenance applications.
