DEMRON CBRN, Blood, and Virus Protection Suit. Developed to exceed ASTM F1670/F1671 Standards for blood and viral penetration resistance as per CDC guidelines released November 03, 2014.
Superior Heat Stress Mitigation and Management
Most suits that are worn to protect against EBOLA Virus exposure hazards trap heat and vapor in the suit creating significant and potentially life threatening heat stress. Demron ICE is thermo conductive, and a passive cooling system. The reduced heat stress translates to extended operational times and maximum comfort for the wearer.
FLIR thermal imaging camera shows heat being transferred to the thermally conductive Demron ICE suit and being released into the atmosphere.
Just as heat release is critical to maintaining an operational core temperature, the ability to proactively combat heat stress is paramount. Demron ICE fabric has metal properties that promote passive cooling and make is possible to cool the wearer by external means. The application of wet towel or ice pack can dramatically heighten the wearer’s mental state and physical ability to work longer hours.
As the onset of fever is one of the first signs of the EBOLA Virus, the external monitoring of temperature becomes critical. Demron ICE allows for heat release making it possible to secure critical temperature readings without removing the suit.
The Demron ICE material is rugged, durable, and engineered to withstand constant use. Prospective decontamination procedures and agents will not degrade the material during the doffing process. Resistant to tearing, Demron ICE fabric exceeds all CDC tensile strength recommendations.
