Biological hazard protection


Protect Against Biological Hazards with DuPont™ Biohazard Suits.

DuPont provides a wide range of chemical protective clothing and biohazard suits — along with their specifications — to meet a broad spectrum of needs.

We believe our chemical protective clothing, when used properly as part of a protocol which includes other protective equipment and thorough personal hygiene practices, may help reduce the opportunity for contamination of worker’s skin and clothing by potentially infectious pathogens. Many of our fabrics and seams pass both ASTM F1670 and ASTM F1671.

Examples of biological hazards include:

• Exposures to blood and bloodborne pathogens

• Pandemic preparedness and response

• Crime scene investigation and cleanup

• Bioterrorism incidents

• Prison cell extraction
