  • Non-encapsulating design type T - Suitable for work in confined spaces

GARMENT MATERIAL

Outer: Strong, flexible and flame retardant aramid fabric coated with chloroprene rubber.
Inner: Chloroprene rubber and a multilayer barrier laminate.

This patented fabric system offers an outstanding chemical barrier - more than 8 hours protec­tion against a wide range of chemicals.
The material has excellent abrasion resistance, withstands flash fire & liquefied gas and fulfils all garment material requirements of the most demanding standards in the world.

SEAMS

Stitched with aramid thread for superior strength and durability. Sealed on the outside with a glued-on rubber tape and on the inside with a welded-on barrier laminate tape. The welded-on barrier tape provides a continuous barrier layer across the seam, giving the same chemical protection as the garment material itself. Read more about the unique AlphaTec® Seam Technology.
