DuPont Launches New Tychem® 2000 SFR Protective Apparel Garments

DuPont Launches New Tychem® 2000 SFR Protective Apparel Garments

DuPont Protection Solutions today announced the launch of DuPont™ Tychem® 2000 SFR, a new chemical and secondary flame protection garment. This latest addition to the broad offering of DuPont™ Tyvek® and Tychem® protective apparel solutions is designed for use in refineries, petrochemical plants, laboratories and hazardous maintenance operations where dual protection against chemical and fire hazard threats is paramount to worker safety.

Tychem® 2000 SFR provides an effective barrier against a range of inorganic acids and bases, plus industrial cleaning chemicals, as well as particles. In the event of a flash fire, Tychem® 2000 SFR garments will not ignite, and therefore do not contribute to additional burn injury if the wearer uses appropriate flame-resistant (FR) personal protective equipment (PPE). If a fire hazard exists, Tychem® 2000 SFR garments must be worn over an appropriate FR garment, along with other PPE that protects workers’ faces, hands and feet.

Special features of the Tychem® 2000 SFR coverall include: a respirator fit hood with DuPont™ ProShield® 6 SFR fabric lining; chin flap with double-sided adhesive tape for secure placement; elastic at the waist and tunneled elastic at the hood, wrist and ankle for improved fit. The garment design also includes a single flap closure over the zipper, with double-sided adhesive tape for additional chemical protection.

Protective apparel for industrial workers was among the first commercial applications for Tyvek®, a unique nonwoven material that has provided protection, security and safety in a wide variety of industries and applications since it was introduced in 1967. DuPont Protection Solutions is marking the 50th anniversary of Tyvek® with celebratory events, a series of communications and special activities that will be held throughout 2017 to not only pay tribute to the past but to focus on the future.  For more information about the 50th anniversary of Tyvek®, including the history of Tyvek® and Tychem® protective apparel, visit
