Chemical Protection for Military

Chemical Protection for Our Protectors

Military men and women face some of the most unimaginable dangers — many of which can’t be seen. To help protect them against chemical and biological threats, DuPont offers garments for chemical protection.

From the high-performance vapor protection, abrasion resistance and flame-impingement protection of NFPA 1991, through the chemical and biological protection of Class 2 ensembles certi?ed to NFPA 1994, and the liquid splash protection of NFPA 1992, DuPont offers protective gear tailored to a host of different hazards. These garments offer a range of chemical protection needed for situations such as initial entry, victim rescue, release mitigation, evidence collection, body removal, and site cleanup. Our certified garments are available in a variety of styles including Level A encapsulated suits, Level B coveralls, and an enhanced Level B suit that has been designed to provide increased liquid and vapor protection without encapsulation.
