Tyvek®/Tychem® chemical protection for emergency response


Chemical protection for those who protect us


Firefighters and other emergency responders can come into contact with many different toxic chemicals and biological agents in the course of their duties. Skin contact, as well as through the eyes and lungs, can represent a significant path of exposure for a huge proportion of industrial chemicals, bloodborne pathogens and chemical and biological warfare agents.

Tyvek® and Tychem® provide lightweight, comfortable protective coveralls that deliver superior protection against a range of hazards without compromising mobility.  

Biological agent protection

Tychem® 6000 F provides an effective barrier against chemical and biological agents and hazards. It is important to note that the garment design excludes the possibility of agents being drawn in at the wrists or ankles by the “bellows” effect.

Chemical agent protection

Military decontamination teams require a lightweight decontamination suit or coveralls with a very high protection performance against a range of chemical agents. Tychem® 6000 F provides an exceptional level of protection for long periods against chemical agents in liquid, vapor and aerosol form

Tychem® 6000 FR ThermoPro is a single layer, triple-threat protection garment designed for industrial workers, firefighters, emergency responders, military, and law enforcement personnel. ThermoPro combines the chemical protection of Tychem® fabric with the flame and arc flash protection of Nomex® in a single garment.
