Unfortunately, chemical splash incidents are a common occurrence in many labs. Chemicals such as acids, corrosive liquids, strong oxidizers and other solvents can cause serious burns that are painful, dangerous and costly. Traditional lab coats don’t provide the necessary protection against inadvertent splashes from these chemicals. Laboratories that don’t face thermal hazards, but do have the potential for exposure to chemicals that can cause severe skin burn injuries, should use CP lab coats. Second-layer options like rubberized aprons do offer chemical protection, but they can be bulky and uncomfortable. They don’t breathe or wick moisture, they restrict motion, and, as a result, they are not always worn when needed—not to mention they can be expensive over time. For maximum CP, consistency is key. As we often say, the best safety program in the world won't protect you if you can't get your teams to wear their PPE properly.

Plus, they're lightweight and designed to fit comfortably, for all-day wear. Bulwark's chemical protection apparel is tested to the highest standards and offers guaranteed FR protection for the life of the garment.
