DuPont Tyvek® Coveralls
Tyvek® coveralls are an excellent choice for breathable coverall protection.  Tyvek® lets air and moisture vapor pass through the coverall, helping the material stay light and dry and is a key factor in reducing heat stress (see image below).  Tyvek® is six times more breathable than microporous film garment materials.  White coveralls are lightweight, chemically and biologically inert, and tear resistant.
