MicroMax™ TS - a range of MicroMax™ NS garments with stitched and taped seams for more critical applications and infectious agent protection
MicroMax™ TS uses superior microporous film laminate MicroMax™ NS fabric combined with stitched and taped seams to provide a range of garments with seams fully sealed against ingress of liquids and dusts.
MicroMax™ fabric provides excellent protection against blood, body fluids and other possible contaminants that may be infected with viral or bacterial agents. It has been subjected to all four* tests within the EN 14126 standard for clothing for protection against infectious agents and achieves the highest class in all four tests.
However, in the case of biological hazards sealed seams are recommended as standard serged seams feature stitch holes through which infected contaminants might penetrate. Thus MicroMax™ TS garments are all constructed with stitched and taped seams for improved security.
The MicroMax™ TS Cool Suit is a version including a covered rear breathable panel for increased comfort in warmer environments.
Note: In some cases where protection is required against a highly dangerous viral agent such as Ebola, a fabric with higher barrier properties, such as ChemMax™1, is recommended.
*Note: there are four tests listed in EN 14126 and not five as some manufacturers suggest. The often quoted ISO16603 is merely a precursor test for the important ISO 16604 and has no classification. Where manufacturers claim a false classification for ISO 16603 it is usually because they have fail or poor result in ISO 16604.

MicroMax® garments are flammable and should not be used around heat, flames or sparks. As they are certified to the anti-static standard EN 1149-5, they may be suitable for use in some explosive atmospheres, though be aware that anti-static treatments may wear off during use. For applications where chemical protection is worn over FR protective clothing, in applications with risk of contact with flames or heat or in high risk explosive atmospheres, consider using Pyrolon® garments rather than MicroMax®. Selection of the appropriate garment for an application is the final responsibility of the user and should be based on a comprehensive risk assessment conducted by a suitably qualified safety professional. Refer to the Lakeland "Guide to Type 5 & 6 Coverall Selection" for guidance.
