Chemical Manufacturing

All work involving the application of paint and finishes requires a specific level of protection against the risks users are exposed to when preparing surfaces or applying the paint. Thanks to the inherent properties of their fabrics, DuPont™ Tyvek® and Tychem® protective garments combine protection, comfort and durability to safeguard people as well as the sensitive processes in which they are involved.

Paint can be divided into three major categories: solvent-based paints, water-based paints and powder paints. Irrespective of the type of paint used, each requires a specific level of protection against the risks users are exposed to when preparing surfaces or applying paint.

Choosing the type of protective clothing best suited to the situation depends on a number of factors, including the products handled, the type of paint or surface treatment product, the concentration of the chemicals used and the type of application (projection, spraying, etc.).

The products below are frequently selected for painting and coating applications, but this is not a comprehensive list.  Please click the Industry option in the Product Selector tool at the top of this page to specify your unique challenges and find the garment(s) that best suit your needs.
