Tychem® 6000 FR – Triple Threat Protection in 1 Garment
A single-layer garment, Tychem® 6000 FR offers triple-hazard protection from liquid-chemical splash, flash fire, and electric arc.
Tychem® 6000 FR coveralls combine the trusted chemical protection of Tychem® fabric and flame protection of Nomex® fiber in a single-layer garment. Proven protection, Tychem® 6000 FR garments meet the requirements of NFPA 1992 Standard on Liquid-Splash Protective Ensembles and Clothing for Hazardous Materials Emergencies and NFPA 2112, Standard on Flame-Resistant Garments for Protection of Industrial Personnel against Flash Fire. Tychem® 6000 FR also exceeds the Hazard Risk Category 2 requirement of 8 cal/cm2 outlined in NFPA 70E, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace. No wonder many industrial workers and HAZMAT responders turn to these coveralls for protection. Tychem® 6000 FR fabrics are tested by a third party laboratory to assess its chemical permeation resistance. DuPont has data for over 200 chemicals for Tychem® 6000 FR in SafeSPEC™ 2.0 so that the user can select an appropriate garment.
- Provides at least 30 minutes of protection against over 180 chemical challenges plus the added benefit of electric arc, and flash fire burn injury protection
- Utilized and relied on by industrial workers and HAZMAT responders Available in orange for high visibility and gray for low visibility
DuPont safety and protection brands undergo rigorous testing using the Thermo-Man® system.

INFORMATION & IDEAS
Brief summary of the US EPA's (Environmental Protection Agency) "Level's of Protection (LOP)" as applicable to those individuals involved in handling hazardous materials. LOP's are based on the type of respiratory protection required to ensure the safety of the user under the specified conditions of use.
NFPA 1992 Overview
NFPA 1992 provides standards for emergency response PPE against liquid splash, particulate materials, and non-carcinogenic vapors in HAZMAT environments.
NFPA 70E® Electric Arc
The NFPA 70E® electric arc flash standard addresses electrical safety–related work practices for employee workplaces that are necessary for the practical safeguarding of employees relative to the hazards associated with electrical energy during activities such as the installation, inspection, operation, maintenance, and demolition of electric conductors, electric equipment, signaling and communications conductors and equipment, and raceways.
NFPA 2113 Overview
NFPA 2113 specifies the minimum selection, care, use, and maintenance requirements for flame-resistant garments for use by industrial personnel in areas at risk from flash fires or short-duration flame exposure that are compliant with NFPA 2112.
NFPA 2112 Overview
NFPA 2112, the standard on flame-resistant garments for protection of industrial personnel against flash fire, provides minimum requirements for the design, construction, evaluation, and certification of flame-resistant garments for use by industrial personnel.
Flame-Resistant Clothing for Laboratory Work
When working in a laboratory environment where exposure to flame is a hazard, flame-resistant garments help to minimize potential burn injury during short-term and emergency exposure to flame in laboratory work.
