Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Unveals Level B Hazmat Suit
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics recently introduced the company's first Level B style hazmat suit, ONESuit® Shield, at the National Safety Council Congress and Expo in San Diego at booth # 5750.
"The Protective Systems team at Saint-Gobain prides itself on listening to the demands of first responders world-wide," said Peter A. Kirk, Market Manager. "Our decision to engineer a Level B suit was based on feedback we received from firefighters, military personnel, law enforcement and occupational safety professionals who were looking for the quality of Saint-Gobain’s material technology in a Level B suit."
ONESuit® Shield is developed from Saint-Gobain's proprietary high-performance Coretech™ Barrier Membrane, ensuring the flexibility and comfort that emergency responders have come to expect from the company's Level A portfolio. It is currently in testing for NFPA 1992 and NFPA 1994 standards.
Level B hazmat suits are used for interacting with controlled and known chemicals in liquid form.
The company's line of products include the ONESuit® Pro, designed as an affordable hazmat suit certified to the NFPA 1991 standard, ONESuit® Flash, ONESuit® Gard, and ONEGlove® Hazmat.
