MicroMAX® Zoom

MicroMAX®

Style Number EM428

MicroMAX® is lakeland premium microporous film Type 5 & 6 coverall. Unique in the world, the fabric features a nylon scrim laminated between the film and PP substrate. This acts as a “rip-stop” and adds strength giving MicroMAX® the highest tear strength of Type 5 & 6 coveralls available. MicroMAX® also features tough and durable bound seams. The combination of fabric and seams results in a garment ideal for more demanding applications where a more durable suit is required.

Key Features Applications & Industries Additional Notes

High tear strength – tough and durable for more demanding applications
Superior liquid an dust protection
Soft, flexible fabric for comfort
High MVTR for higher comfort level
Lakeland “Super-B” style pattern – ergonomically styled and sized for
generous fit and superior freedom of movement

General maintenance and cleaning applications
Low hazard Emergency response applications
Paint- spray applications
Low-level insecticide / pesticide spraying
Wet applications in GRP manufacture
Boat building
Wind blade manufacture
Pharmaceutical manufacture
Scene of Crime Operations
Low hazard Emergency response applications

Whilst MicroMAX® NS is certified to the standard for
biological / infective agents protection the garment
is made with stitched seams so is not sealed at the
seams. For applications involving such hazards –
including protection against blood and body fluids –
we would recommend the MicroMAX® TS – the same
fabric with taped, sealed seams which is also certified
to this standard.

Packaging:  Individually vaccum packed

The table above shows the result of standard CE certification required mechanical strength tests on fabrics and seams to provide a general profile of the garment mechanical properties. These are a reflection of controlled lab tests and actual performance of nonwoven fabrics and films may vary. For more detail on each of these tests please see the page at CE Certification and Marking.

 

Breathability and Comfort Factors

Micromax Flashspun
Polyethylene
The best measure of comfort is simple air permeability. This is the property of the fabric to allow air to pass through it easily so that air is exchanged and heat and moisture can be expelled from inside the suit.
Air Permeability CFM- Cubic feet per minute 40 40 <0.5 <0.5 ~3.3
A commonly used alternative measure is MVTR (Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate). This is the tendency for the fabric to allow moisture vapour to pass through the fabric and theoretically this affects comfort… though there is little evidence of any real effect over time. Safegard is not tested as it features high air permeability making MVTR irrelevant.
MVTR Grams/hour/M2 at 37.7oV Not tested Not tested 119.3 119.3 111.2
Note: a further effect on comfort is the cut and fit of the garment. Selecting the correct size is important both for durability and comfort. Lakeland coveralls use the unique “Super-B” style combining three key factors to make a better fitting garment allowing greater freedom of movement and increased comfort. See here

Repellency testing is required on fabrics used for Type 6 garments and reflects the fabrics tendency to repel the specified liquids at an angle of 45o. The test shows a percentage of the a specific volume of the liquid which rolls off the fabric (i.e. is repelled) and the percentage which penetrates through. The missing percentage has been absorbed into the fabric. Note that any fabric will absorb liquid only until saturation at which point the liquid will pass through immediately. This point is not indicated by the test.
