Chemical suit type 3 with intensive use CHEM 3 (chemical warfare agent tested)
The CHEM 3 heavy-duty chemical workwear provides Type 3 protection against heavy splashes of hazardous chemicals. It is a lightweight, waterproof suit using a multi-layer composite technology comprising EVOH barrier film and LDPE bonding layers to provide very high protection and resistance to a wide range of chemicals (chemical warfare agent tested).
Stitched seams sealed on the outside with a thermoformed ribbon, double zip protected by a storm flap make this a safe and comfortable chemical suit type 3 particularly suitable for petrochemicals, chemical industries, contaminated land clean-up, or tank cleaning. Detailed description
