Tyvek® 500 garments are composed of flash spun high density polyethylene which creates a unique, nonwoven material available only from DuPont. Tyvek® garments provide an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort. They are now available with external serged seams that provide the performance of Type 5/6 garments, which have been tested to standards against light liquid aerosols and airborne solid particles. The coveralls provide an effective barrier against particles (down to 1.0 micron in size). Tyvek® 500 coveralls are suitable for applications such as pharmaceutical handling, chemical processing, automatic spray painting, maintenance and many others. Tyvek® 500 Type 5/6 coveralls offer the following safety and comfort benefits:

  • Pin locking slider locks in place when the pins on the puller are pushed into the zipper elements
  • Protection against infective agents (EN 14126) including resistance to penetration by blood and body fluids using synthetic blood (ISO 16603 Class 3) and resistance to penetration by blood-borne pathogens using Phi-X174 bacteriophage (ISO 16604 Class 2)
  • Chemical protective clothing, Category III, Type 5-B and 6-B. (1956)
  • EN 1073-2 (protection against radioactive contamination)
  • Antistatic treatment (EN 1149-5) - on both sides.
  • Serged external seams featuring patent-pending technology for enhanced liquid spray tightness
  • Very low inward leakage due to optimized design
  • Tyvek® auto-lock zipper and storm flap for increased protection
  • Elastic face, wrists and ankles as well as glued-in waist elastic
  • Products made after January, 2023 are manufactured under specifications that do not contain natural rubber latex.
