Primarily used by individuals who work with hazardous chemicals and flammable products, such as science technicians and teachers/professors, pharmaceutical company employees, etc., nomex lab coats serve the workers in these professions with the uttermost protection against severe injuries due to fire and hazardous chemicals.The nomex fabric is a flame resistant, breathable fibrous material, developed in the 1960’s to manufacture protective clothing and gear for workers in such fields as mentioned.The breathability of the nomex fabric enables ventilation and the protection against absorption of chemicals as well as fire or extreme heat to enter the coat and cause severe injury to the wearer.
I’ve found a multitude of colors among the nomex lab coats, such as blue, red and white to only name a few.You can conduct a web site search, for these coats by simply keying in certain words such as “lab coats”, “fire resistant lab coats” and “protective gear” into any web site search engine field and be delivered some very impressive results.For those of you who’d prefer to purchase from a local supplier or retailer, try searching in your local area’s newspaper classified section, your local area telephone books or local circulars.In these types of searches, you may be able to locate a specialty store that deals in protective gear, a surplus store or even a discount, close-out, or liquidation store that carries these types of coats.
Nomex lab coats will generally cost somewhere between $80 and $200, depending on the style, manufacturer or supplier.Many of the of the manufacturers and suppliers online will offer special discounts, which they advertise on the search engine results page and their home pages, for “bulk orders” and free shipping and handling, as well as “express” delivery.You may also be able to find special offers, at your local retailer, for “bulk purchase” discounts; simply ask the suppliers if they do, in fact have any special deals to offer, in order to save you some money.
Buying nomex lab coats that are used can be another way to save you some cash.Just make sure, that if you decide to purchase a coat that is used, that it is in the best possible condition.These lab coats are intended to protect the one wearing them, from severe injuries; if there are any flaws or any type of damage to the coats you buy, you may not be as well protected as you should be.Not to mention, this in the long run, would end up being a waste of money (and time) rather than saving money.
You always want to make ABSOLUTELY SURE of what type, style and even color (if applicable) of nomex lab coats your particular field of work requires.If you do not have this information readily available, to you, do yourself a favor and take some time to browse the web, for this information, or you may even inquire the store managers of the local area surplus or specialty stores that you find in your search, mentioned earlier.It’s always best to be “prepared”, so having this information ahead of time can save you a lot of both time as well as unneeded exerted energy.
