Search by chemical name or CAS number.
The app contains a database of tested chemicals, which the user can search by either chemical name or CAS number. Once a chemical is selected, a user completes a short questionnaire on the hazard situation (such as level and length of exposure) and HazMatch will recommend a protective garment that matches the exposure criteria.
Whenever multiple garments are suitable for the chemical and hazard scenario, all available choices will be listed with the least expensive garment providing the appropriate protection appearing first (noted BEST CHOICE). Each recommendation includes detailed information about that particular garment style.
Multiple ways to find the suit you need.
HazMatch may be searched by the different protective fabrics Kappler offers. This search mode provides a list of tested chemicals for a specific fabric and the holdout time for each chemical. All of the chemical data in HazMatch is based on third-party testing, with the database updated regularly with new chemicals.
