What Is the Difference Between Light One-Piece Protective Clothing and Heavy Protective Clothing?

Theory

1. Heavy-duty chemical protective clothing: It has also become A-level chemical protective clothing, fully enclosed chemical protective clothing or airtight chemical protective clothing. It is the highest protection level in the category of chemical protective clothing. The material is quite special and is often used in fire rescue, Chemical leakage rescue, and other occasions. The reason why heavy chemical protective clothing is called airtight chemical protective clothing is that it can effectively protect against the intrusion of toxic gases.

2. Light chemical protective clothing: The definition is relatively broad. Chemical protective clothing except heavy chemical protective clothing can be defined as light chemical protective clothing, which can effectively protect against the intrusion of chemical solvents, dust particles, and viruses. Chemical protective clothing with protection grades of B, C and D belong to the category of light chemical protective clothing. Its scope of application is very wide, it is used in medical and health, chemical plant operations, spraying industry, etc. The protective suit manufacturer shares with you.

The difference between the two, we analyze from the following points:

1. Material

a. Material thickness: heavy chemical protective clothing is thicker than light chemical protective clothing.

b. Material types: Heavy-duty chemical protective clothing generally uses flame-retardant cloth coated with PVC, polymer chemical protective film, polyester fiber, and other fabrics; while light-weight chemical protective clothing mostly uses flame-retardant cloth coated with neoprene.

2. Sealing performance

The sealing performance of heavy chemical protective clothing is better than that of light chemical protective clothing. The whole person is wrapped inside the chemical protective clothing. The air-tight zipper is used with double-layer plastic strips. Light chemical protective clothing generally protects the entire body, and the face needs to be equipped with a gas mask to protect the toxic substances.

3. Flexibility and comfort

Heavy chemical protective clothing is bulky and completely closed, so wearing and unloading are generally two people at the same time, in addition, because of the particularity of the material, people wearing is very inflexible. Lightweight chemical protective clothing is light in weight, easy to wear, more flexible in operation, and highly flexible. It is more rapid and convenient in general chemical operation and rescue.

4. Related accessories

The use of heavy chemical protective clothing must be equipped with air respirator, because it is the entire enclosed space, need air supply. For light chemical protective clothing, the configuration is relatively flexible. If it is an emergency rescue, the operation time is longer. You can install an external air respirator. If the substance is not toxic, you can use a special gas mask. If it is a laboratory operation, it can meet the requirements with an ordinary half-mask gas mask and goggles.

5. Applicable occasions

Lightweight chemical protective clothing is not suitable for wearing on the site of toxic and harmful gas fires, accidents or workplaces. It is only suitable for steel mills, petrochemical plants, telecommunications, aviation, emergency medical departments, and chemical plants.

Heavy-duty chemical protective clothing is used by firefighters when working on-site with hazardous chemicals or corrosive materials. Mainly used in A-level environment (such as: toxic and hazardous workplaces, environments where varieties and doses of toxic and hazardous substances are unknown); biochemical environment; environmental detection unit; hazardous material handling, etc.
