UniTech's many years of experience in the design and decontamination of nuclear protective garments combines with DuPont's technical capabilities in fiber development, plus PFG's expertise in fabric weaving and finishing, have resulted in the ultimate protective clothing for nuclear industry employees.
The micro denier synthetic yarns developed for PROTECH 2000 offer the highest barrier protection of any protective clothing on the market. PROTECH 2000's synthetic yarns offer ultra-tight weaves with a maximum of 20-30 microns openings compared with the 75-300 micron opening range typical of cotton and poly-cotton fabrics.
wearer comfort was a prime consideration in the development of PROTECH 2000. Extensive tests demonstrated that the lightness of the fabric coupled with UniTech's unique mesh ventilation inserts in the back and hood result in reduced heat stress.
the introduction of PROTECH 2000's light, synthetic fibers, incorporating DuPont's Nega-stat carbon core fiber grid, has resulted in vastly improved decontamination properties. The Use of Nega-stat fibers greatly reduces the electrostatic attraction of radioactive particulate during wear. UniTech's technically superior laundering techniques and customized wash chemistry act to maximize decontamination of the garments. The overall effect is a longer-lasting garment with fewer replacements resulting in a reduced volume of radioactive waste.
