Protective clothing is worn whenever tasks are to be performed in a chemically or biologically contaminated environment. This results in strict and sometimes very specific requirements of protective suits. We can assist users and manufacturers in meeting these requirements, both by testing and technical advice.
Tests of protective clothing materials with chemical and biological agents or against exposure to heat or flames. In addition to the tests on samples of clothing materials we offer also tests on the total protective suit. Tests are performed according to international standards (NATO, EN, ISO, FINABEL) or customer specified conditions (e.g. air flow, type of agent, agent concentration, temperature, relative humidity, duration). We have built tailor-made test equipment to be able to provide a vast array of services. The equipment is installed in a high toxicological facility in Rijswijk, with the containment area for handling extremely toxic compounds.
