Disposable protective cloth is a special kind of workwear that temporarily helps the wearer to avoid injuries in different environments, such as infectious diseases and poisons, chemical substances, electrical, radiation, etc.
The most effective way to protect staff in relatively hazardous environments is to not reuse disposable protective cloth.
Protective cloth can be specifically subdivided according to function and role, and you will be informed in detail next.
Today, I will mainly through five aspects to introduce how to buy protective cloth and how to identify the quality of protective cloth.
Point one: protection level
Depending on the type of work environment, the level of protection is the first thing that needs to be checked when ordering protective cloth. Protective cloth levels are divided into a total of "six" types of protection due to the different levels of protection, and different levels of protection for protective cloth.
Type 1 protection: It is a completely enclosed protective cloth to prevent chemical gas contamination in the form of liquid and gas.
Type 2 protection: A protective suit to prevent contamination with highly dusty particulate matter, liquids and vapors.
Type 3 protection: in use must withstand a strong degree of protection from liquid chemically directed jets.
Type 4 protection: can be in the user to prevent minor liquid spray, not penetrate the protection.
Type 5 protection: can prevent airborne particles, light contaminants from entering.
Type 6 protection: can protect the staff from light non-toxic liquid spray, liquid material splash, breathing matter invasion.

Point two: the correct and reliable quality of fabric
The fabric is the most important part of the protective clothing and the different material choices determine the protective effect of the clothing.
Non-woven fabrics are usually used for protective cloth. Such as PP (polypropylene), SMS/SMMS, TYVEK©1431N, etc.
PP is a petroleum polymer that can be molded into fibers for apparel and hygiene products. PP PP material used for clothing, due to the non-woven material that does not absorb moisture but can prevent it from not clinging to the body is made. PP disposable cloth used as protection against dust and various types of hazardous handling environment is very significant, corresponding to different classes of level of protection, the corresponding quality and weight is also different.
SMS spunbond/meltblown/spunbond fabric, which is breathable and has a strong barrier made from SMS, clothing properties are suitable for certain particle protection and clothing more comfortable, with greater breathability does not "leak" the structure of the liquid.
Tyvek fabrics are made entirely of polyethylene fibers, which are pressed together by heating. In this case, unlike the other two materials, it is designed to provide protection to the entire outer layer of the fabric. The smooth surface prevents particles and liquids from accumulating and penetrating the fabric. The fabric is also quite strong, with a physical structure that makes it less prone to wear and tear.
However, since Tyvek is expensive and has few purchase channels, here is an affordable alternative - breathable membrane nonwoven. Breathable film nonwoven is a polypropylene film that is heat-laminated to a polypropylene nonwoven. The size of the permeable pores is smaller than water droplets and larger than water vapor to block the penetration of liquids and blood-like substances. Breathable membrane nonwovens are widely used for disease prevention of biological agents to provide a good barrier. The non-woven surface provides a soft feel and an extremely comfortable wearing experience for the wearer.
Point three: the practicality of protective cloth
The practicality of protective cloth is an issue worth exploring, and can usually be divided into disposable protective cloth and reusable protective cloth. We advise our customers to choose according to their actual working environment.
In most cases, users prefer disposable protective cloth for one-time use.
Disposable coverall can only be used once. It helps workers safely isolate their environment and ensures that they are not exposed to infections or other injuries due to repeated exposure. Each time you work, you need to put on a new suit, so the cost of using protective cloth is relatively high.
Reusable suits, on the other hand, can be used until they are destroyed or contaminated on the job or in any other situation. Although reusable suits can be purchased less frequently and at a lower cost, it is still recommended that they be disinfected after each day's use and that the barrier properties of the fabric be checked regularly.
Point four: size and comfort
Before ordering protective cloth, you must evaluate various factors. For example, the environment of the workplace, the temperature, and the ease of the actual work.
If the protective cloth is not properly sized, the user will not only feel the psychological anxiety and danger of safety and security in the workplace.
The fabric is an important part of the test for comfortable workwear. You will find a big difference between breathable and non-breathable coverall fabrics, which we have described above.
For example, in extreme conditions, it is important to choose a fabric that has some breathability, otherwise the work could be suffocating.
The weight of the protective cloth is also a key factor, and you need to consider the zippers, seams, hoods, etc. of the protective cloth, and you must understand the appearance in detail before ordering.
In short checking the size, fabric and weight of your workwear is a key point to ensure maximum comfort and effective practicality.
When you are trying to find the right protective clothing, it can again be difficult to choose straight away to find the ideal product for you.
