Trellchem®VPS Flash

DESIGN

Trellchem® VPS Flash comes in three different designs to fit all user preferences:

  • Encapsulating design type CV
  • Encapsulating design type VP1 (larger visor)
  • Non-encapsulating design type T

GARMENT MATERIAL

A Nomex® base fabric combined with an outside chloroprene rubber coating and on inside a multilayer plastic film offering 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 without any added protection required.

SEAMS

The seams are stitched with aramid thread for superior strength and durability. On outside the seam is sealed with a glued-on rubber tape and on inside 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.
