Contamination Control - Chemicals in the Cleanroom

In this guide, we look at the differences between disinfectants, detergents and alcohols as well as how to use them and when.

When using chemicals such as detergents and disinfectants it is important to wear appropriate PPE at all times* (Not only should cleanroom operators keep the cleanroom free from contamination but protecting operators is important too).

Chemicals can be highly dangerous when they come into contact with the skin. While you should always be fully covered and protected in the event of chemicals coming in contact with the skin, you should seek medical help if advised by the manufacturer.

Whether you are new to cleanrooms or want to refresh your knowledge, our Learning About Contamination Control guides are designed to help you navigate the requirements and best practice for each classification.
