The DuPont ProShield NexGen disposable coverall with hood, boots, and elastic cuff is a single-piece protective garment made of a polypropylene nonwoven fabric laminated with a microporous film to help protect against a variety of non-hazardous aerosols, liquids, and dry particles. This coverall features an attached hood with an elastic face opening to cover head, neck, and chin, and to fit around a respirator face mask (sold separately). The attached boot covers are made of a polypropylene nonwoven fabric coated with an LDPE (low-density polyethylene) film to improve skid resistance and chemical and water resistance. It has elastic cuffs for a tight fit at the wrists and ankles, and the seams are serged for reinforcement and fray resistance. This disposable protective clothing is suitable for a variety of industrial environments, and can be worn until damaged, altered, or contaminated. It meets the American National Standards Institute/ International Safety Equipment Association (ANSI/ISEA) 101-1996 (R2008) standard, which provides requirements for the performance, size dimensions, labeling, and packaging of limited-use and disposable coveralls.
Coveralls, also called boilersuits, are single-piece protective garments with full-length legs and sleeves. Coveralls come in a range of protection levels, from light-duty suits worn over street clothes, to heavy-duty hazmat suits that protect the wearer from toxic liquids, gases, and airborne particles. Less protective suits are made of breathable fabric, can weigh less, and feel less restrictive than heavy-duty suits. More protective suits are made of fabrics impervious to gases and water vapor, and include hoods, attached boot covers, and taped seams, all features which can be more restrictive to the wearer than light-duty suits. Protective coveralls are commonly used in applications such as paint spraying, mold remediation, environmental cleanup, and fiberglass installation.
