EN Standards on Disposable Workwear

Platinum Chemicals offer a range of single use PPE Disposable Coveralls to prevent contamination in the workplace.

If your working environment has a risk of dust, chemical splashes or cross-contamination these products become invaluable. It is however important to understand the EN Standards associated with Disposable Workwear.

Our range of disposable PPE Disposable Coveralls are ideal for those working in the chemical spraying, cleaning and food industry whether it is production or serving.
