Chemical protective fabrics.

DuPont, Wilmington, DE, has introduced two fabrics, "Tychem" 9400 and Tychem 7500 to broaden its line of chemical protective fabrics. Both fabrics are multi-layer film laminates on a nonwoven substrate. DuPont is also now using the Tychem name to identify its entire line of chemical protective fabrics.

The Tychem line of fabrics is made into limited-use garments for protection against liquid chemicals and can be made into a variety of styles, from coveralls to fully encapsulating protective suits. Tychem 7500 is designed for use in industrial plants and chemical cleanup operations and offers high tensile and burst strength and resists a broad range of chemicals, while Tychem 9400 is designed for use in hazardous chemical protection garments as well as for emergency spill-response suits and provides the highest level of chemical protection in the family.
