BEST PAINTER COVERALLS FOR 2020
Exposure to chemicals is common if you are a professional or amateur painter. Coveralls work as a shield against chemicals, liquid splashes and sprays, dirt, and dust that protects your whole body: from neck to ankles as well as arms and shoulders. Some disposable coveralls come with a protective hood that can be used to cover your head as well. Overalls, also recommended for painting and other jobs, are farmer-style trousers that are held up by straps over the shoulder. They protect only your torso and legs.

➤What are painter coveralls?
Coveralls are usually worn over the top of personal clothing to protect your skin and undergarments. They are the gold standard for PPE (personal protective equipment) that protect against a number of hazards. Workers wear coveralls in many industries including painting, farming, mechanics, oil and gas, manufacturing (pharmaceutical, laboratory, industrial), and electrical. Coveralls are also worn at home when doing home repairs or gardening to protect clothing.
Coveralls are made from a variety of materials including cotton, denim, nylon, polyester, Tyvek, polypropylene, and spandex. Staying safe and clean is everyone’s priority and coveralls are the protective garment of choice for millions of people.
➤wHAT ARE PAINTER COVERALLS MADE OUT OF?
Cloth coveralls are the most well-known style and have been around for more than a century. They are either 100% cotton or a blend of cotton and polyester. Polyester is a strong light-weight fabric that protects better against chemicals. Polyester does not shrink or wrinkle and helps protect against abrasion.
➤ DISPOSABLE COVERALLS
Disposable coveralls are a type of protective clothing used in many industries to keep you safe as you work. The fabric protects your skin and undergarments without the need for decontamination. They are made from polyester, polypropylene, Tyvek and other proprietary materials. Disposable coveralls are microporous which allows them to breathe; body heat and sweat vapors pass through the suit without compromising the material’s integrity. A big advantage is their cost as they are disposable and made from cheaper material.
Disposable coveralls are manufactured with levels of protection ranging from 1 to 6, with level 1 being the most protective. Purchase level 5 or 6 if you simply want to protect yourself against dirt, dust, and non-hazardous liquid splashes. Durability is also an important consideration with disposable painting coveralls. The material must be strong, puncture-resistant, and withstand intense working environments.
➤wHAT STYLES DO PAINTER COVERALLS COME IN?
There are several styles to choose from when buying painter coveralls.
- Short-sleeve coveralls cover your shoulders, body and legs. They have a front zipper that extends from your chest to your waist and an elastic waist for a more comfortable fit. Typically they include either one or two chest pockets to store items.
- Disposable coveralls cover your entire body – arms included. They have a front zipper for easy access and are commonly equipped with a hood to protect your head which also doubles as a place to fit a respirator.
