Distributor Cross-over Tools


What is changing?


We’ve simplified our product identification system by replacing the original product names with an easy-to-follow numeric system. The higher the number, the higher the level of protection.

Patch shape

All garment patches are now in the shape of a stop sign, with each brand designated by its own unique color. ProShield® is gray; Tyvek® is blue; and Tychem® is orange.


Packaging will be redesigned to reflect the new brand approach.

What is not changing?

Part numbers

Use the same 16-digit part numbers to place your orders.

Quality or construction of garments

While the naming system has changed, you can be assured that the quality and construction of your garments have not. The protection levels remain the same.

Packaging quantities

Like the part number, packaging quantities will remain the same.

Why this change is important.

Users asked for a system that is easier to understand. We’ve accommodated this request with a product identification system founded on DuPont™ ProShield®, DuPont™ Tyvek® and DuPont™ Tychem®.

Timeline for inventory conversion.
