The Kleenguard A80 Saranex chemical permeation and jet liquid protection coverall with hood and boots is a white disposable single-piece protective garment made of chemically resistant Saranex 23-P barrier film laminated to a cloth-like spunbond nonwoven fabric to help protect against hazardous liquids and particles, including most acids, bases, and alcohols. The material passes ASTM International F1670/ F1671 testing for penetration of blood and bodily fluids, and is tested against ASTM International F1001 Standard Guide for Selection of Chemicals to Evaluate Protective Clothing Materials. This coverall features an attached hood with an elastic face opening to cover head, neck, and chin, and to fit around a respirator face mask (sold separately), and attached boots made of the garment material that completely cover the wearer's feet. It has elastic cuffs for a tight fit at the wrists and ankles, and a front zipper to facilitate donning. The zipper is covered with a sealable taped storm flap to reduce exposure. The seams are taped with Saranex 23-P barrier film to provide increased resistance to penetration from liquids and dry particulates, and located on the back of the coverall for seamless protection in the primary areas of potential exposure. The coverall is tailored to provide 12 percent more chest room and 6 percent longer body length than the ANSI/ISEA (American National Standards Institute/International Safety Equipment Association) 101-1996 standard size dimensions. This disposable protective clothing is suitable for hazardous material handling.
Coveralls, also known as boilersuits, are single-piece protective garments with full length legs and sleeves. Coveralls come in a range of protection levels, from light-duty suits worn over street clothes to keep them clean while working, to heavy-duty hazmat suits that protect the wearer from toxic liquids, gases, and airborne particles. Less protective suits are made of breathable fabric, and can weigh less and feel less restrictive than heavy-duty suits. More protective suits are made of fabrics impervious to gases and water vapor, and include hoods, attached boot covers, taped seams, all features which can lead to discomfort or heat stress if worn for extended periods. Protective coveralls are commonly used in applications such as paint spraying, mold remediation, environmental cleanup, and fiberglass installation.
