THE CONTEGO GUIDE TO CHEMICAL PROTECTION
Providing the right protective clothing for your workers is more important than it’s ever been. Whenever you have a need for Protective Clothing, or help with sourcing a solution for special requirements, our staff can give helpful advice on choosing suitable products.
This standard is used for protective clothing against liquid chemicals. It specifies performance requirements for:
– clothing with liquid-tight (Type 3) connections (formally EN465).
– or spray-tight (Type 4) connections (formally EN466).
– items providing protection to parts of the body only (formally EN467).
Liquid Tight Suits. (Type 3)
This test involves exposing a whole suit to a series of short jets of a water based liquid, aimed at various critical parts of the suit. This suit protects against strong jets of liquid chemical.
Spray Tight Suits. (Type 4)
Test involves exposing a whole suit to an intense spray of a water based liquid. This suit protest against saturation of liquid chemicals.
ENISO 13982:2004 (Type 5)+A1: 2010
Dry particle suit. This specifies the minimum requirements for chemical protective clothing resistant to penetration by air borne solid particles. Protects against hazardous dust and dry particles
EN13034:2005 (Type 6 and Type PB (6) Reduce
Spray suit (Type 6) and partial body protection items (PB 6). This specifies the minimum requirements for chemical protective clothing offering limited protective performance against liquid chemicals (Type 6 and Type PB 6 equipment). This standard tests for liquid chemical sprays and splashes that are not directional or built up on a suit but there may be a fine mist of droplets in the atmosphere.
Electrostatic requirements – surface resistivity (test methods and requirements). This tests for the removal of electrostatic to avoid sparks that could cause fire/hazard to the wearer.
This specifies the requirements and test methods for limited use protective clothing providing protection against infective agents.
