The Five Amendments of Advanced Protective Industrial/Cleanroom Clothing

Chemical spills cause a major panic in the facility. Annual cleaning on a wide systematic scale is enforced once again. There are many reasons to deploy a team in full ESD Uniforms, but it is always wise to keep in mind the five amendments all the professionals stick by. These are terms the uniform providers of re-usable ESD & contamination control apparel take extremely serious.

Amendment 1: Protection of cleanroom environment against contaminated people

Contamination of people is common, obviously, and that is the first rule all agents represent when cleaning a plant, manufacturing facility, or asbestos-infested building. Though the amendment specifies the cleanroom environment, it also includes the products being supplied by the developer.

Amendment 2: Protection of people against solid and liquid hazardous substances

Some substances are discreet and well-hidden. The team is thorough enough to protect future entrants from threats both solid and liquid. Special equipment is used to soak up liquid detergents and cleanroom apparel chemicals. team members will have access to protective soles that go in their foot accessories. OnStat and FibreSole products act as that extra protective layer for liquid hazards in the facility.

Amendment 3: Sustain electrostatic charge dissipation

The electrostatic technology is the main weapon of choice for those wearing ESD Apparel. The activity is done to protect the people doing the cleaning, for a single electric shock could radiate throughout the entire environment. Furthermore, the destatic aspect protect the first people who enter the room after cleaning. Team members give a 24 hour window (at a minimum) for re-entry after a cleanroom excavation.

Amendment 4: Not generate further contamination

Obviously, all professionals are trained to not add to the contamination. The point of highest contamination potential is when leaving the facility. Any contamination added upon entrance is cleaned through the process.

Amendment 5: A sustained heat exchange for wearer

The apparel can get very heavy, and it could cause dehydration, among other health concerns. Team members promise to watch each other’s status. The heat exchange system confirms that everyone is being supplied with the proper temperature to do the work right without risking their health.
