DuPont™ Tyvek® Classic Xpert, model CHF5. Hooded coverall available in white, in sizes S to XXXL (blue and green garments also available). Robust yet lightweight (<180g per garment). 3-piece hood for optimal fit to head and face when turning. Elasticated face, wrists and ankles as well as glued-in waist elastic. Ample crotch area for freedom of movement. Large, easy-to-grasp zipper puller.
Tyvek® garments are composed of flash spun high density polyethylene, providing an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort. Tyvek® is permeable to both air and water vapour, yet repels water-based liquids and aerosols. It offers an excellent barrier against fine particles and fibres (down to 1 micron in size), is ultra-low-linting and antistatically treated. Silicon non-added.
Applications for Tyvek® Classic Xpert garments include those found in pharmaceutical handling, chemical processing, the oil and gas industry, general maintenance and operations, automatic spray painting and many others.
- Chemical protective clothing, Category III, Type 5-B and 6-B
- EN 14126 (barrier to infective agents), EN 1073-2 (protection against radioactive contamination)
- Antistatic treatment (EN 1149-5) – on both sides
- Stitched external seams featuring patent-pending technology for enhanced liquid spray tightness
- Very low inward leakage thanks to optimised design
- Tyvek® auto-lock zipper and zipper flap for increased protection
DuPont™ Tyvek® Classic Xpert, model CHF5. Hooded coverall. Ergonomic-protective design. Stitched external seams. Elasticated wrists, ankles and face. Elasticated waist (glued-in). Tyvek® zipper and flap. White.

Data relating to mechanical performance of the fabrics used in DuPont chemical protective clothing, listed for the selected garment according to the test methods and relevant European standard, if applicable. Such properties, including abrasion and flex-cracking resistance, tensile strength and puncture resistance can help in the assessment of protective performance.
Information relating to the protective performance of a garment according to European standards where applicable. Includes important characteristics such as protection against radioactive contamination, seam strength and shelf life. Inward leakage and resistance to penetration by liquids, according to the relevant Type classification, are also detailed.
Permeation is the process by which a solid, liquid or gaseouses chemical moves through a protective clothing fabric at a molecular level. Permeation data assist in the selection of the most appropriate protective garment for a particular application and in the estimation of how long it can be safely worn. Standardised test methods are used to determine the resistance of DuPont materials to permeation, the results of which can be selected according to a specific chemical, chemical class or fabric.
The comfort of a protective garment during use is largely determined by its weight, its permeability to vapour and air (breathability) and insulating properties. Data on these attributes is provided according to test method and, as with other data, can be compared by garment.
Penetration and repellency
A specific test method, EN ISO 6530, is used to measure the indexes of penetration, absorption and repellency of protective clothing material exposed to liquid chemicals. Results listed here reflect the penetration resistance and repellency of DuPont fabrics to 30% sulphuric acid and 10% sodium hydroxide.
Detailed information on the protective performance (resistance to penetration) of DuPont clothing when exposed to biologically contaminated aerosols, liquids and dusts as well as blood, body fluids and blood-borne pathogens. Sorted by relevant European standard.
The particle release of a fabric is measured according to BS 6909, a standard method for the generation and counting of the airborne linting propensity of fabrics in their dry state.
