DuPont™ ProShield® 60 – Microporous Protection for General Maintenance
ProShield® 60 suits (model CHF5a) combine good particle protection with high liquid repellency. Specially designed to help protect against Type 5 and 6 exposure, these garments comprise a microporous film on a polypropylene nonwoven fabric.
ProShield® 60 garments are ideal for applications that are less demanding in terms of barrier, durability and comfort – for example, general maintenance, hospitals and other industries. They help provide a barrier against nonhazardous dry particles down to one micron in size, are repellent to liquids, but offer only limited chemical permeation barrier to some commonly used low concentration water-based chemicals. (In case of contamination, changing to a new suit is recommended). This material has limited breathability – comfort; it is permeable to moisture vapour only (not air permeable).
ProShield® 60 suits are not recommended for hazardous applications that require good abrasion resistance, due to the fragile nature of the outer film.
