Disposable coveralls - the shield between you and the hazards!  


 

What are disposable coveralls?

Disposable coveralls are designed to be worn over personal clothing and provide protection against a wide range of particulates such as dirt, dust and grime, asbestos fibers, chemicals, paints, varnishes, aerosols, liquid splash and spray hazards as well as chemicals or microbes.  In cleanrooms or in the production of pharmaceuticals they protect against contamination by staff.

Where are disposable coveralls worn?

  • Paint Spraying
  • Mold Remediation
  • Lead & Asbestos Abatement
  • General Maintenance & Repairs
  • Food Processing Plants
  • Agriculture & Gardening
  • Insulation Work
  • Automotive Repair
  • Sandblasting
  • Medical Environments
  • Pharmaceutical Clean Rooms

What are the advantages of disposable

protective clothing?

  • Very light material which does not restrict freedom of movement
  • Guaranteed 100% cleanliness (put on new coveralls every time)
  • Excellent protective properties
  • No washing, maintenance or repair costs
  • Economical - low purchase costs
  • Minimum place needed for storage, suits come in a case of 25
  • Simple disposal process – just take off and throw out!

Material:  Most disposable coveralls are constructed of nonwoven synthetic fabric. As they increase in protection levels, different materials will be laminated together to increase strength and decrease permeability. 

  • Polyethylene coated - Polyethylene coated polypropylene (PP + PE). General-purpose laboratory use, anywhere light splash protection is needed.  Anti-dust, anti-bacteria, fluid resistant, water-based liquid protection.
  • Polypropylene - Spunbonded polypropylene. Basic protection from grime, dirt, and dust in medical, industrial, institutional, service, and household environments.  Eco-friendly, breathable, soft and very lightweight.
  • Microporous - Microporous film over spunbonded polypropylene.  Widely utilized in medical, industrial, institutional, and service environments where anti-bacterial or waterproof barrier protection are required.  Durable, waterproof and breathable.
  • SMS - 3-Layer polypropylene = Spunbonded Polypropylene/Meltblown Polypropylene/Spunbonded Polypropylene. Thorough protection in medical healthcare, industrial, laboratory, institutional, and sanitation.  Limited fluid and particulate barrier. Resistant to tears and punctures. Lightweight, breathable, tear resistant, breathable, waterproof.
  • High Density Polyethelyne - Tyvek®.  Industrial safety, biological hazard protection, painting. Asbestos abatement or installing insulation. Manufacturing, automotive, and utilities.  Protects against small hazardous particles; such as lead, asbestos, and mold. Superior barrier protection against hazardous materials for industrial workers and more.

Style:

Another factor in selection of coveralls is the construction details. There are suits with attached hoods and boots, no hood and no boots, elastic wrist and ankle cuffs, just hood, or just boots. Most suits feature a long front zipper closure.  The more protective suits will also provide a strip of tape along the zipper flap to seal the zipper seam completely.

Seams:

Another construction consideration is the type of seams. The most common construction is serged seams.  If more security is required, a bound seam will hold the garment together with a lower failure rate. The strongest seam is sewn and then sealed with heat sensitive tape.

Fit:

There should be room enough to perform all movements without stressing the seams of the garment, but not so much room that the suit gets hung up on objects in the work environment.  When hazardous substances are involved training on the proper removal and disposal of the garment is very important.
