Protective clothing hazardous substances

Read on to find out more about the features and benefits of chemical-resistant clothing.
What is chemical-resistant clothing?
Chemical-resistant clothing is specially designed to protect against exposure to hazardous chemicals. These garments are made of materials that resist chemical penetration, keeping your skin protected.
Chemical-resistant clothing is important in situations where workers are exposed to potentially hazardous chemicals, as in branches as the chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries.
Characteristics of chemical-resistant clothing:
- Material: Chemical-resistant clothing is manufactured from specific materials chosen for their excellent resistance to chemicals. These materials include PVC (polyvinyl chloride), neoprene, polyethylene and polypropylene. They have been carefully selected on the basis of their chemical resistance and durability.
- Closure: Chemical-resistant clothing features a tight seal to prevent hazardous substances from entering the clothing. This can be achieved by means of elastic cuffs at the wrists and ankles, zips with adhesive strips, double closures and even welded seams. These closures ensure a snug fit and minimise the risk of exposure to hazardous substances.
- Protective layers: Chemical-resistant clothing can consist of several layers to provide optimal protection. For example, some garments have an outer layer of PVC for chemical resistance, an intermediate layer of textile for extra durability and an inner layer of comfortable material to increase comfort. This layered construction provides a balanced combination of protection and comfort.
Benefits of chemical-resistant clothing:
- Compliance with regulations
The main advantage of chemical-resistant clothing is that it ensures your safety when handling hazardous substances. By wearing this clothing, you minimise the risk of accidents and exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. It provides a physical barrier between your skin and the hazardous substances, keeping you protected from direct contact, splashes or spill.
Compliance with regulations
Chemical-resistant clothing is essential to comply with the regulations and standards governing work with hazardous substances. In many sectors, there are specific rules and guidelines compiled to ensure the safety of workers.
Chemical-resistant clothing is designed to last, even in harsh conditions. The materials used are sustainable and wear-resistant, cracking and chemical degradation.
While safety is the top priority, at Wijngaarden VeiligGoed we also understand the importance of comfort while working. Our chemical-resistant clothing is carefully designed with an eye for comfort.
