With sustainability becoming increasingly important to companies, there is, naturally, a major disadvantage to disposable clothing. Because you throw away the suit after every use, this type of protective clothing is not exactly sustainable. Disposing of and processing all these suits is damaging to the environment, so you should buy a few reusable suits every now and then.
Reusable protective clothing may be more expensive to buy, but then these can worn for a longer period of time. But only under the right conditions, of course. Disposable clothing needs to be deposited in the bin as soon as you’ve opened the packaging.
A reusable chemical suit is also mechanically stronger. If you know the potential contaminator and have a correct contamination procedure in place, they can be used frequently and efficiently.
