The table above lists recommended gowning apparel for each cleanroom class. Additionally, use chemical splash goggles or safety glasses for eye protection; for operations that may involve splashing, include a face shield. Thick butyl rubber, neoprene, nitrile, or polyethylene gloves may be appropriate depending on the cleanroom application and the production process. Check glove manufacturer for recommendations on a suitable glove for the specific chemical and or application within the cleanroom environment. Ensure that personal protective equipment is worn at all times while in the cleanroom.
