DuPont Tyvek 500 Protective Clothing

DuPont Tyvek 500 Protective Clothing

DuPont™Tyvek® 500 (formerly named Tyvek® Xpert) garments are composed of flash spun high density polyethylene which creates a unique, nonwoven material available only from DuPont. Tyvek® garments provide an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort. They are now available with external serged seams that provide the performance of Type 5/6 garments, which have been tested to standards against light liquid aerosols and airborne solid particles. The coveralls provide an effective barrier against particles (down to 1.0 micron in size). Tyvek® 500 coveralls are suitable for applications such as pharmaceutical handling, chemical processing, automatic spray painting, maintenance and many others.
