PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AGAINST LIQUID CHEMICALS

Pressure Pump Solutions LTD. believe it’s important that our clients and potential customers have the facts as well as all the information they need at their fingertips when it comes buying their workwear and PPE from us.

So, what is EN13034?

EN 13034/EN 13034+A1 provides only minimal protection against tiny amounts of liquid chemicals and splashes (Type 6 and Type PB [6] equipment). Safety clothing with this accreditation is suited for use in situations where minor splashes of chemicals are a risk, but complete body protection is not required. EN 13034 certified safety apparel is appropriate for circumstances in which you might be exposed to small amounts of chemicals. If the safety apparel has been exposed to chemicals, remove it as soon as possible.

AREAS OF USE

Chemical protective gear with limited performance is designed for situations where a complete liquid penetration barrier (at a molecular level) is not required, such as light sprays, liquid aerosols, or low pressure, low volume splashes.

TYPE 6 REQUIREMENTS

Type 6 Chemical Protective suits must cover and protect at least the trunk and the limbs, Example One-piece coveralls or two-piece suits, with or without hood, boot-socks or boot covers. Link to port west one-piece coveralls

TYPE PB [6] REQUIREMENTS

Type PB [6] Partial body protection covers and protects only specific parts of the body. Example coats, aprons, sleeves. Link to Port West apron, or sleeve or coat.
