Suitable only for low hazard chemical protection. This is the standard method of stitching seams together for garments. The two fabric components are brought together and a simple overlock stitch holds them together. This type leaves needle holes in the seam, through which liquids or dusts can penetrate. The holes will tend to open up under stress, so an ill fitting garment can result in more stress on seams and a greater likelihood of contamination.
An upgrade of a stitched seam. Still, suitable only for low hazard chemical protection.
ln this, an additional strip of fabric is wrapped around the"butt" join and stitched in place, which can add strength and reduce the tendency to allow penetration. Whilst an improvement on standard serged seams, it remains a stitched seam with needle holes, so it is not a sealed seam.
Usually, we do not recommend customers to choose this type, it costs more, but the protection level is much lower than taped seams.
Required for all garments for higher hazard chemical protection (Type 1 to 4).
The seam is first stitched and then an impervious tape is applied over the seam and sealed in place by an ultrasonic heat welding machine. It takes much more time and labor work, so the lead time and price are much higher than the common serged type.
