Synthetic fabrics are notorious for being hot and sweaty, especially if woven very tightly for maximum micro contamination control. The solution is for the weaver to employ very fine yarns – thinner than silk – to create a very dense, yet very sheer material. Fabrics can be woven so tightly that particles cannot easily penetrate, but moisture vapor can.
Cleanroom garments are exposed to a wide range of environmental conditions. Cleanroom fabrics can be designed to resist spilled chemicals, such as industrial-grade nitric and sulfuric acids. They may also be designed and chosen to resist high heat sources, the infrequent flash fire, and arc flashes.
In designing cleanroom fabrics, the types of conductive and base yarns, the weave construction, and the finishing methods all must be balanced carefully to address various chemical and electrical cleanroom conditions. If any surface chemical finishes are applied to improve filtration efficiency, splash resistance, or anti-microbial performance, they must be durable and non-particulating.

The determination of the suitability for use, chemical compatibility, and durability of a ChemStat material in a particular cleanroom environment is the responsibility of the end-user operating the cleanroom and the end-user's chosen laundry service provider. Such determination must be established and documented prior to material selection by both the end-user and its laundry service provider, otherwise, this limited product warranty is voided.
