ISO provides a standard system to test, classify, and label chemical protective apparel products. There is no established means to compare the performance of garments from one manufacturer to the next.
Will the chemical be a solid, liquid, or gas when the worker is potentially exposed?
How ISO Can Assist the Safety Professional — Occupational Health & Safety
16602 develops biobased solutions using enzymes, microbes, and other bioactives to help improve the performance and The label can include pictograms taken from ISOsuch as those shown below in Figure 2, which indicate that 16062 protective clothing is for hazardous chemicals and that separate manufacturer’s instructions are available.
The combination of whole garment and component testing ensures the sum of the parts is able to provide the appropriate protection. The Surroundings What is the work environment? The work situation may likely require additional forms of PPE, such as footwear, gloves, face protection, and respirators. What is the physical state of the substance? Selection of Chemical Protective Clothing The selection of appropriate chemical protective clothing depends upon an accurate hazard assessment.
166602 Does the workspace restrict the design or configuration of the PPE? It is clear that ISO will become the common global language for expressing chemical protective clothing CPC performance.

Barrier to the specific chemical hazards, mechanical durability and ease of ignition of the garment materials and components are assessed with lab tests.
ISO Overview | DuPont | DuPont USA
When it comes to safety training, no matter the industry, there are always questions regarding requirements and certifications. For each Type, a minimum performance Class is required for each of the tests specified under that Type Table 1.
Safety and occupational health professionals will also need to consider hazards specific to their work conditions, including:.
Nor is there a common way to describe the overall performance of the protective ensemble or the performance of the ensemble’s components 166002 different chemical threats. The performance requirements defined by ISO are based on results obtained from existing standard test methods. Description “[ISO ] addresses the range of general, industrial chemical protective clothing by designating specific design types and providing classification of clothing, material, and component performance.
Our core values govern our internal business practices and partnerships, and guide our innovations. The flammability test employed in ISO is not intended to qualify an ensemble as suitable for protection against heat and flame hazards. Learn how DuPont continues to improve upon its materials and workplace safety performance to help keep all of us safe in the toughest conditions. Breakthrough time alone is not sufficient to determine how long a garment may be worn once the garment has been contaminated.
Processing and transporting of highly abrasive and corrosive, bitumen, slurry and tailings require the innovation and technology that DuPont can provide. DuPont 116602 Polymers can be that partner.
What is the potential duration of the chemical exposure? Table 1 Applying ISO Consider the task of unloading a tank truck containing a hazardous liquid under pressure.
DuPont provides end-to-end technical expertise and a wide range of cost-effective materials to help create packaging innovations that support partners’ branding, performance, and sustainability goals.
