Partial protection is particularly useful when an increased barrier effect is required for certain parts of the body to protect these parts against a higher risk for a limited period.

Where abrasion on specific areas occurs accessories can be used and replaced when worn out without having to replace the entire protective apparel.

Tychem C provides a barrier against many concentrated inorganic chemicals, whilst Tychem F provides an additional barrier against many organic and highly concentrated inorganic chemicals, up to pressures as high as 5 bar. Both materials satisfy the requirements of a bio-barrier in accordance with EN 14126 in the highest performance class.

Tychem is ultra light, tear-resistant, abrasion-resistant and low-linting. When used in protective apparel, it is anti-statically treated and complies with EN 1149-1:1995 (fully effective from 25% relative air humidity). It does not contain any environmentally harmful additives, the protective apparel can be safely and easily disposed of after use. If contaminated by a hazardous substance, the same disposal regulations apply as for the hazardous substance itself.
