A cleanroom is an environment with a controlled level of contamination such as dust, microbes, vapours and aerosol particles. A cleanroom is defined by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size.
Cleanrooms are used in almost every industry where particles can harm the manufacturing process or contaminate the product. This includes pharmaceuticals, microelectronics, life sciences, biotechnology, food packaging, electronics, automotive and optical industries.
Air filtration and airflow management control the concentration of airborne particles inside the room.
Personnel selected to work in cleanrooms undergo extensive training. They enter and exit the cleanroom through airlocks, air showers and/or gowning rooms, and they are trained to wear special clothing designed to retain pollutants that are naturally generated by skin and the body (skin flakes, hair,..).
Cleanroom garments are designed to minimise or eliminate particle release from the wearer’s undergarments and prevent the cleanroom from contamination. Protection of the product made in the cleanroom is essential.
The type of cleanroom garments used should reflect the cleanroom and product specifications.
Alsico High Tech provides cleanroom garments according to the IEST-RP-CC003.4 standard for all cleanroom classes.
