New Cleanroom Coveralls Offer Reliable Protection

Kimberly-Clark Professional now offers more choices in cleanroom coveralls with the introduction of Kimtech Pure A5 Cleanroom Coveralls. These new non-sterile coveralls follow the company's recent introduction of a sterile Kimtech Pure A5 Cleanroom Coverall.

"Our Kimtech Pure A5 Cleanroom Coveralls are a good choice for both sterile and non-sterile environments," explains Damon Larkin, scientific apparel and mask category manager, Kimberly-Clark Professional. "We engineered them to provide the reliable protection required in cleanroom environments, to reduce the chance of contamination and provide for peace of mind."

Kimtech Pure A5 (non-sterile) Coveralls are a high-quality, affordable solution for many cleanroom needs. They are easy to don, comfortable to wear, and efficient to stock.

Their patented Reflex design is 7.5 times more rip-resistant than ANSI minimums since it provides 12 percent more chest room and six percent longer body length. And the company's SMS (spunbond-meltblown-spunbond) material delivers cloth-like comfort and is 25 percent more breathable than Tyvek material. The garments' elastic waist and back reduce loose-fitting material that could contact work surfaces or billow out, forcing air to exit the garment at its extremities.

Built-in thumb loops keep sleeves from rolling back and exposing the wearer. In addition, a mandarin collar comes up higher on the neck to provide added protection.

"These comfort and design advantages may lead to greater satisfaction among wearers as well as better productivity, since workers are more comfortable," notes Larkin.

Kimtech Pure A5 (non-sterile) Coveralls are available in sizes small through 4XL. A hood and boot covers are also available.
