DuPont Protection Technologies Launches SafeSPEC 2.0
Mississauga, ON (April 13, 2011) – DuPont Protection Technologies today announced the launch of SafeSPECTM 2.0, one of the most comprehensive interactive online tools that helps safety professionals to make informed decisions about selecting chemical protective apparel.
SafeSPECTM 2.0 offers several new customizable product selection and search features for the full portfolio of chemical protection clothing from DuPont, including DuPontTM Tyvek® and Tychem® protective apparel. The new straightforward design allows users to search by parameters that are tailored to their needs including fabric, design, certification, and EPA/OSHA designation and hazard. The tool also provides industry specific search for construction; manufacturing; transportation and utilities; mining, oil and gas extraction; agriculture and public administration.
Using SafeSPECTM 2.0, safety professionals will have the ability to see products in a new way with 360 degree images that enable views from all angles to aid in product selection. SafeSPECTM 2.0 includes more than 550 new product images to provide more detailed information about specific offerings. The updated product selector tool allows users to input specific hazard scenarios, yielding results that best match the environment in which the products will be used. To ensure better accuracy and enhance the search experience, safety professionals may now search up to five chemicals at once to demonstrate which garments offer resistance to multiple threats. The tool also features a check system that validates garment selections based on user input for specific hazard scenarios.
“Our goal is to provide a tool that makes the experience as user-friendly and informative for customers as possible,” said Dave Kee, North America garments marketing manager – DuPont Protection Technologies. “The launch of SafeSPECTM 2.0 reinforces our commitment to providing industry solutions that facilitate comprehensive product selection so our customers have the information needed to make informed purchase decisions.”
SafeSPECTM 2.0 provides access to a wealth of easy-to-read content including product literature, technical information, a chemical resistance database and information on where to buy each product. SafeSPECTM 2.0 www.safespec.dupont.com emphasizes ease of use for safety professionals; because many chemicals have complex names, the tool automatically fills in the chemical name as it is entered so that customers can more easily locate the chemical requirements for their specific scenario. Additionally, SafeSPECTM 2.0 will suggest relevant products based on information provided by the customer. The software’s new features will be launched in a phased approach beginning in April.
