Protective clothing for use against solid particulates – Part 1: Performance requirements for chemical protective clothing providing protection to the full body against airborne solid particulates (type 5 clothing)
This part of EN 13982 specifies the minimum requirements for chemical protective clothing resistant to penetration by airborne solid particulates (type 5). These garments provide full-body protection (i.e. they cover the trunk, arms, and legs; e.g., one-piece coveralls or two-piece suits, with or without hoods or visors and with or without foot protection). Requirements for component parts, such as hoods, gloves, boots, visors, or respiratory protective equipment are specified in other International and European Standards.
This part of ISO 13982 is applicable only to airborne solid particulates. It is not applicable to other hazards created by solid chemicals (e.g. penetration of chemical dust through materials by rubbing or flexing; countering such hazards form the bases for separate standards).
Information needed on labelling inside type 5 garments:
• Manufacturer/company name
• Identification or model number
• Number and date of this standard (i.e. EN ISO 13982-1:2011)
• Year of manufacture and, if appropriate, expected shelf-life
• CE marking indicating conformity with Directive 89/686/EEC
• Size designation in conformance with EN 340
• Pictogram chemical splash – type 5 and, if tested, type 6
• Pictogram for “read instructions”
• Maintenance symbols
• Marked according to relevant standards if the garments are tested for their electrostatic properties or as radioactive particle-tight clothing, clothing providing protection against infective agents, and clothing resistant to heat and flame
• PPE category
