    I use tyvek suits and 2 pairs of vinyl gloves when spraying,  I dont use a face shield but when applying biocides I do use a ffp3 mask. A face shield is normally only required when handling the concentrate during the initial mixing. Others will certainly differ in their approach.

    • Thank you for your quick reply.i'll Google the suits now!

    • I don't believe ffp3 offers any protection against biocides

      • PRO

         They protect against solid and liquid aerosols, so unless you vapourizing the liquid they will work.

    If you go look at ProGreen's website (see link from LJN ---->) they have all you need and can offer suitable advice if needed.

    I'd always suggest the correct grade blue or green Tyvek suits as they are slightly less obvious and CSI like ;)

      Along with wellies and correct nitrile gloves we would also recommend a green or blue suit for the reasons Gary's mentioned above!

      For our spraying register we use the built in version Jobber offers which is dead easy to use too!

        Hi, I use Jobber but wasn’t aware there was a spraying register. Could you let me know how I access it.

         

         Thanks 

  • Bib 'n' brace oilskins can be useful in warmer weather if using a hand-sprayer. They give plenty of ventilation and can be used indefinitely if washed down after use.

    Heavy Duty Bib And Brace Oilskin Trouser

      Are they the right safety category (Ideally CEN type 4, 5 or 6, I believe ) to spray in ?

      • Well there's a question I'm not too sure about and you wouldn't want to wear a knapsack sprayer with them.

        But one thing I'm sure of is that when it's a warm clammy day and you've got 16 back courts to spray I wouldn't fancy changing disposable coveralls 16 times or wearing one all day when my wellies are filling up with perspiration - it's just not going to happen. The oilskins we use are the heavy-duty type fishermen wear.
