Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics is poised to introduce the most affordable hazmat suit certified to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1991 standard.

The new hazmat suit, ONESuit® Pro, is flame-resistant and is the first product certified to both NFPA 1991: Standard on Vapor-Protective Ensembles for Hazardous Materials Emergencies and NFPA 1994: Standard on Protective Ensembles for First Responders to CBRN Terrorism Incidents.

The United States' leading advocate of fire prevention and an authoritative source on public safety, NFPA develops, publishes, and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of exposure to fire, chemicals, and other associated risks.

Saint-Gobain's patent-pending CoreTech Barrier Membrane technology enables the light, under 10-pound ONESuit Pro to cost-effectively deliver the highest levels of protection against chemical and biological agents in both liquid and vapor form. It has a convenient single-skin design, engineered for maneuverability and user comfort in the most challenging environments.

ONESuit Pro features a minimum seven-year shelf life and is compactable for convenient, space-saving storage.

"Fire departments, chemical facilities, and government agencies charged with protecting public safety can now choose certified single-skin hazmat protection without breaking the budget," said Matthew Madeksza, General Manager of the Coated Fabrics Business Unit at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.

ONESuit Pro will be officially introduced at FDIC 2009 in Indianapolis, April 20-25, at Booth #3630. This newest product joins Saint-Gobain's other NFPA -certified chemical protective offerings: ONESuit® Flash, ONESuit® Gard, and ONEGlove® Hazmat.
