RT Series DuPont™ Tychem® Hoods
Air Delivery System
• Patented air delivery system delivers air over the user’s head, down the
front of the lens, and into the breathing zone.
• Eliminates fogging of the lens.
• Helps to promote curvature of the hood for a better fit to the user’s
head.
HEADBAND-FREE DESIGN
• Free floating hood style eliminates the irritation and pressure of a
headband.
• Allows unrestricted movement of the head.
PANORAMIC VIEW
• Oversized lens provides unobstructed visibility.
• Minimizes the “closed-in,” claustrophobic feeling sometimes experienced
in other respirator hoods.
For use with
Powered Air-Purifying Respirators (PAPRs)
or Supplied Air Respirators (SARs).

RT Series Tychem Hoods
Features and Benefits
Innovative and Proven
Air Delivery System
The RT Series hood family represents a significant improvement in
the realm of DuPont™ Tychem® Series hood respiratory protection.
In addition to the recognized benefits of hood-style respirators (no fit
testing, no facial hair issues, and eyewear accommodation), the RT
Series offers several unique, customer-driven features that make it
stand out from other Tychem hoods.
Air is directed through a patented air delivery system that delivers
the air over the user’s head, down the front of the lens, and into the
breathing zone. This unique air delivery method provides a secure fit,
minimizes fogging of the lens, reduces discomfort from dry eyes and
nasal passages, and provides air flow to the torso.
Designed in cooperation with leading life science organizations, the
RT Series addresses the needs of the most discriminating worker
while instilling performance confidence with the Industrial Hygienist
responsible for that worker’s health and safety.
Over-the-top air flow delivery
Headband-Free Design
The comfortable headband-free design of the RT Hood allows the hood
to “float” on the user’s head, eliminating the pressure and irritation
associated with headbands. Engineered to offer ultimate comfort and
free movement of the head, the RT feels virtually weightless for the
user. In addition, since the RT Hood needs no headband, users no longer
incur the costs of replacement headbands or brow pads.
Panoramic View
The RT Hood offers 135 square inches of viewing area, giving workers
the greatest possible visibility on the market today.
The RT Series Hoods feature an oversized lens to provide for
unobstructed visibility. The domed feature of the lens, in addition to
adding visibility, lets light in - minimizing the “closed-in,” claustrophobic
feeling sometimes experienced in other respirator hoods.
Sport or Inflatable Neck Cuff
Now the RT Series Hoods are more comfortable than ever with the
addition of a new sport neck cuff (RT3 and RT4), made from a soft nylon
material. The neck cuff allows air to flow through to the torso for a
cooling effect to the body. The RT1 and RT2 are available with inflatable
neck cuffs.

RT Series Tychem Hoods
Features and Benefits
Long Inner and Outer Bibs
Inner bibs provide for a higher level of protection by providing an
additional barrier layer between the worker and the contaminants. When
the bibs are tucked in, air flows from the respirator across the torso to
create a cooling effect.
Two Hood Styles. Two Choices.
The RT Series Hoods are available in either Tychem QC (RT2 and RT3)
or Tychem SL (RT2 or RT4).
DuPont™ Tychem® QC
A lightweight, durable fabric, DuPont™ Tychem® QC utilizes the
strength of DuPont™ Tyvek® fabric and a polyethylene coating. Tychem®
QC fabric provides at least 30 minutes of protection and more than 40
chemical challenges. Tychem® QC is used for light splash protection in
a variety of industrial environments, including petroleum refining, pulp
and paper manufacturing, food processing, chemical processing, and
pharmaceutical manufacturing.
The RT2 and RT4, constructed of Tychem SL, feature taped and sealed
seams to minimize the potential for any inward leakage at the sewn
seams. Tychem SL is Saranex coated and provides excellent permeation
characteristics against more caustic chemicals.
The RT Series Hood can be used for both Powered Air-Purifying
Respirators and Supplied Air Respirators.
Ultimate Disposability
The RT Series Hoods are available in several configurations to meet
most levels of disposability requirements. As with most Tychem hoods,
the RT Series is available as a stand-alone replacement hood for those
applications that allow for decontamination and reuse of the breathing
tube.
For single use applications, the RT Series is available fully assembled
with a disposable lightweight breathing tube. Individually packaged with
the breathing tube already attached, the user needs only to don the
hood and connect the flow control device. After exiting from the area,
the user may dispose of the complete assembly.
DuPont™ Tychem® SL
Independent 3rd Party 1,000 APF
DuPont Tychem SL delivers effective protection against a range
of chemical environments. Tychem® SL, utilizes Saranex® 23-P film
laminated to Tyvek® fabric to provide a rugged and durable fabric
that resists abrasion. Tychem® SL fabric provides at least 30 minutes
of protection against more than 124 chemical challenges. Typical
applications: chemical mixing, hazardous remediation, emergency
medical response, paint spraying, and nuclear environments.
To meet the requirements of using the hood at an APF of 1,000, Bullard
contracted the US Army’s RDECOM (Research Development and
Engineering Command) Center to perform an Independent Laboratory
Respirator Protection Level (LRPL) study.
™
®
The exercises were chosen to simulate activities that may be seen in a
pharmaceutical manufacturing application. The testing equipment and
capability is the most elaborate and sophisticated of its kind.
FeaturesBenefits
Headband-free design
Provides better comfort. Saves money. No need to purchase replacement headbands.
1,000 Assigned Protection Factor (APF)Provides superior protection as verified in an independent study.
Over the Top Air Flow Delivery SystemPatented air delivery system minimizes lens fogging, reduces possibility of dry eyes
and nasal passages, provides cooling air flow to the torso and promotes curvature of
the hood for a better fit.
Panoramic Viewing LensThe extra-wide, oversized lens provides 135 square inches of unobstructed visibility
and minimizes any closed-in feeling experienced with other hoods.
Sport Neck CuffDesigned to provide soft, comfortable protection around the user’s neck, making
head/neck movement easy, reducing any rubbing.
Long, Double BibsExtra layer of protection from contaminants. The longer bibs help users keep hoods
tucked in when moving the arms and shoulders, while also allowing excess air to
travel to the torso for a cooling effect.
Available with Taped and Sealed SeamsThe RT4 with taped and sealed seams helps provide greater protection against any
inward leakage of contaminants.
No Fit TestingThe hood-style design fits a wide variety of users, requires no fit testing, and
accommodates eyewear and facial hair.
