Tychem 2000 SFR (photo) is a new protective garment designed for use in operations where dual protection against chemical and fire hazard threats is paramount to worker safety. Tychem 2000 SFR provides a barrier against a range of inorganic acids and bases, plus industrial cleaning chemicals, as well as particulate matter. In the event of a flash fire, Tychem 2000 SFR garments will not ignite, and therefore do not contribute to additional burn injury if the wearer uses appropriate flame-resistant (FR) personal protective equipment (PPE). If a fire hazard exists, Tychem 2000 SFR garments must be worn over an appropriate FR garment, along with other PPE that protects workers’ faces, hands and feet. Special features of the Tychem 2000 SFR coverall include: a respirator-fit hood; chin flap with double-sided adhesive tape for secure placement; and elastic at the waist and tunneled elastic at the hood, wrists and ankles for improved fit. — DuPont Protection Solutions, Richmond, Va.
