Leading manufacturer selected for key US government contract

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics announces that the United States Air Force has chosen ONESuit® Gard chemical protective single-skin hazmat suits for personnel based in Iraq.

All ONESuit products, including the ONESuit Gard, are certified to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1991 standard for superior protection against the most dangerous chemical and biological agents.

With a single-skin design, ONESuit Gard chemical protective suits do not require overcovers to keep wearers safe, allowing for maneuverability and user comfort. The hazmat suit is also lightweight, offers extended shelf life, and is compactable for convenient, space-saving storage.

"It's all about safely completing the mission, and we're honored that the U.S. military has chosen ONESuit products to protect our fellow citizens," said Peter A. Kirk, II, product manager, Protective Systems, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.

The ONESuit Gard suits were sold to the United States Air Force through contractor Witmer Associates of Coatesville, PA.

In addition to ONESuit Gard, Saint-Gobain's chemical protective offerings include ONESuit® Flash, ONESuit® Pro and ONEGlove® Hazmat.
