    In 1976 the U.S. Army’s Chemical Systems Laboratory needed an off-the-shelf, positive pressure, totally encapsulating suit for use at a chemical weapons site.

    The suit was to be used in one of the most toxic chemical environments in existence at the time. Their requirements were reliability, impermeability, chemical resistance, and durability plus personnel mobility and comfort. Finding no existing product available, the Army contracted with ILC Dover to develop a suit that would meet these needs. The results… the Demilitarization Protective Ensemble (DPE)

    The challenge? To develop a film compatible with heat sealing that also met the exacting protective needs required. Over 50 materials were tested by ILC Dover before Cloropel™ was selected. After more
    than two years of extensive testing, the Cloropel™ DPE suit proved ready for use.

    The DPE made its entry into the “hot” environment at Tooele and met the challenge. Today it has over 700 recorded entries into hot environments with a perfect safety record.

    ILC Dover used that experience and safety record to develop the Chemturion™ suit. The Chemturion™ has provided the same level of protection to BSL-4.
