Tired of Tyvek® Suits? A Terrific Alternative.
Tired of Tyvek® Suits? A Better Coverall Alternative!
International Enviroguard has a Tyvek® alternative called Body Filter 95+®. Typical, disposable coveralls are bulky and hot with limited breathability. As you put in a hard day’s work, you sweat which is uncomfortable in standard protective coveralls that are made of thicker materials with lower breathability. That’s why we created Body Filter 95+®—its lightweight and breathable fabric offers the perfect balance of safety and comfort for maximum productivity with less risks.

Safety and Comfort All in One
If you’re looking for a Tyvek® coveralls alternative, you’ve come to the right place. Our Body Filter 95+® protective coveralls and apparel are designed with a stronger fabric than that of leading competitors, so it holds up in tough environments. The proprietary fabric has a high moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR), meaning heat and moisture vapor escapes garments to keep you cool for long hours.
How Body Filter 95+® Protective Coveralls Enhance Safety
Body Filter 95+® coveralls offer our highest level of particulate protection along with protection from light liquid splash. These coveralls provide 95% to 99% filtration efficiency with particulates as small as 0.3 microns. This superior particle filtration level is hard to top because it’s similar to the efficiency of an N95 respirator. What’s more, these disposable suits and Body Filter 95+® accessories can be ordered in bulk so your whole team is covered
Body Filter 95+® Common Applications and Uses
These breathable disposable coveralls are often used in a variety of applications such as paint spray applications, asbestos abatement, mold remediation, construction work, manufacturing, agricultural work, pharmaceuticals, and food processing to protect against liquid splash, overspray, and noxious particulates. Our high-performance coveralls feature a reinforced crotch to reduce the risk of rip-outs when bending, climbing, or stretching. Additionally, a seamless shoulder also reduces the chance of rips in the shoulder area. This innovative suit design allows you to crouch, crawl, and perform repetitive movements with comfort and ease. Coveralls also have convenient features such as an oversized zipper, which makes it quick and easy to put on and take off, even with gloved hands.
Protecting workers against COVID-19 Exposure
Body Filter 95+® suits can help protect workers from COVID-19 exposure due to their high particulate efficiency. Particulate matter (PM) refers to airborne particles that can be a solid such as dust, or a liquid such as or droplets from a cough or sneeze. Airborne particles can be hazardous to the health, especially if they are contaminated with the novel coronavirus. Particles below 2.5 micrometers (also called microns) are able to enter the bloodstream—and coronavirus species are even smaller, ranging in size from 0.06 to 0.14 microns.
It may sound counterintuitive, but particles that are smaller than 0.3 micrometers, such as COVID-19 particles, are actually captured with higher filtration efficiency1. What does this mean? Because the virus particles are so small and light (low mass), they actually bounce around in a random zigzag pattern when they collide with other airborne molecules such as dust or saliva, instead of flying straight. As a result, the particles end up getting stuck in the garments fibers and do not penetrate through. This is known as the principle of Brownian movement.
Put simply, particle size matters. Body Filter 95+ coveralls are able to filter out virus particles of this size within a 95% to 99% efficiency range. When combined with an effective mask or properly fitted respirator, these coveralls and full body suits offer superior performance and head-to-toe protection from COVID-19 and other viruses.
