DuPont™ Tychem®—Protecting industrial workers for 30 Years

For protection against chemical dangers, industrial workers rely on DuPont™ Tychem® garments.   

Every day, thousands of industrial workers put their trust in our garments, so as a normal business practice, at DuPont we make sure that Tychem® chemical suits go through rigorous testing. Tychem® fabrics have been tested by third party labs for permeation against thousands of chemicals. The result is chemical protection available against thousands of toxic liquids and vapors from sarin to chlorine gas. In fact, as a company, we helped improve the safety standards for the HAZMAT category. Your workers can feel confident that wearing Tychem® chemical suits can help them do their job at hand.

Find the right protection
 
 
 

When it comes to chemical hazards, details are everything.
 

The superior protection of DuPont Tychem® garments begins with our unique barrier fabrics, which undergo rigorous testing by third-party labs. As a result, we can say with confidence that Tychem® fabrics will stand up to hundreds of challenge chemicals, ranging from toxic liquids and vapors to sarin and chlorine gas.

Garment construction is crucial as well. Secure seams and zippers; proper sizing; the fit and design of hoods and accessories; and even garment colors—all play a critical role in helping keep workers safer on the job.

 
 
 

 

Fabric

The barrier fabrics and construction methods used in Tychem® garments help prevent penetration and permeation by chemical hazards. As permeation testing is the most sensitive measure, extensive permeation testing assures that every Tychem® garment provides the appropriate level of protection.

 
 
 

Penetration

Bulk movement of a material through a pore, gap or defect in the barrier fabric.

Permeation

Movement of a material through barrier fabric on a molecular level.

 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Seam Construction

Always select garments with strong, tight seams that are appropriately constructed for your application.

 
 
 

Serged or Sewn*

Threads interlock around the raw edges of two pieces of material. Strong and stress resistant.

Bound*

Tightly sewn with a reinforced outer binding. For potential misting exposure to non-hazardous liquids or particle penetration.

Taped

Sewn and taped to provide strong resistance to chemical splashes and physical stress.

 

*Serged and/or bound seams are degraded by some hazardous liquid chemicals, such as strong acids, and should not be worn when these chemicals are present.

Double Taped

Sewn and taped on the inside and the outside for strong resistance to chemicals and physical stress.
