Such PPE should be limited to to protect the wearer to prevent mechanical action in the epidermis (gardening gloves, thimble, etc.); the effect is small, easy to remove the cleaning material (for anti dilution detergent solution gloves, etc.); danger of heat treatment time, this danger will not put users at a temperature above 50 DEG C or lower, the collision will not make users to dangerous (such as some special occupation gloves, aprons and so on); for neither special. No protection under extreme atmospheric environment (safety helmet, seasonal clothing, footwear, etc.); will not hurt the body part and a small group of fatal irreparable damage to the collision and vibration (light Helmet, gloves, shoes, light, etc.).

For the protection of solid or liquid aerosol or irritation, dangerous, toxic or toxic gas filtering breathing device radiation;

For respiratory protection is completely isolated from the atmosphere, including respiratory protection device for diving;

The PPE provides only limited protection for chemical or ionizing radiation;

In the role of the equivalent temperature of 100 DEG C, and may have to infrared radiation, flame or a large number of jet of molten material for use in high temperature environment urgent

Rescue equipment;

- to guard against falling down from the height of the PPE;

- to guard against the risk of electric shock and voltage for dangerous or PPE. insulation high voltage operation

Type 3: other products

These two types of products outside, specifically for the armed forces or maintain the legal order of use and the design and manufacture of PPE (helmets, shields and other).
