DuPont Launches Tyvek® 500 Xpert, a New Level of Protection in the Type 5/6 Category
The new design and construction
Improved liquid protection
Tyvek® 500 Xpert offers the wearer superior liquid protection due to its new patent pending seam technology. DuPont has redefined protection in every detail and, as a result, Tyvek® 500 Xpert passes the new stringent Type 6 test method (EN ISO 17491-4 Method A:2008). Tyvek® 500 Xpert also demonstrates greater protection when tested according to the more stringent whole suit Type 4 spray test (EN ISO 17491-4 method B). It displays in fact significantly less liquid leakage than conventional stitched seams, increasing the peace of mind of the wearer. Moreover, the new Tyvek® 500 Xpert fabric is certified as offering protection against infective agents (EN 14126), as well as against chemical permeation by some water-based low chemicals.
