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 resistant to the penetration of chemical substances, 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.
