information provided in this literature is intended as a guide for
those having the technical knowledge and responsibility for determining
the appropriate protection needs of individuals in specific usage
conditions. When selecting Chemical Protective Clothing, ensure
that the garments being used are made from a fabric that is appropriate
for the specific chemical exposure situation; carefully consider
the work situation and other factors when deciding on the proper
seam and garment type. It is the responsibility of the user to assess
the level of hazardous chemical exposure and then decide on the
appropriate personal protective equipment needed for each circumstance.
results are reported as averages. Individual results may vary.
information provided within this literature refers to the performance
of the fabric only, in the laboratory under controlled conditions.
It does not demonstrate performance of a whole garment in a use
situation. Seams and closures may have shorter breakthrough times,
higher permeation rates, and inferior penetration results; thus
the garment may allow greater penetration of liquids compared to
the fabric alone.
garments should only be used in situations where the identity and
concentration of each chemical exposure are known. The material
used in Hazard-Gard*protective apparel should not be used for chemical
emergency response or other applications of an emergency nature
unless the chemical and its concentrations are known and testing
demonstrates that the fabric and construction are appropriate.
the garment is worn correctly. The wearer should ensure that the
front zipper is properly secured with the flap folded over the zipper.
A combination of garments and other personal protective equipment
should be used to provide total necessary protection.
Apparel should only be used when properly supervised and assisted,
following OSHA and industry recommended practices and safety precautions.
removing, decontaminate the garment as necessary. Do not re-use
or launder apparel. The length of use of Hazard-Gard*garments is
determined by the specific end-user application and the types of
potential hazards present
dispose of used garments in a safe and appropriate manner in accordance
with applicable Federal, State, and local environmental regulations.
