A standard liquid-resistant apron. It's pretty durable, but it's PVC - don't expect it to resist solvents outside of light splashes.
Product FeaturesEasy to use, Durable/Performs well

I found these plugs to be a poor fit for my ears, but other ears might be different. Fortunately, they are inexpensive to purchase if you want to try them on.

Yes, I recommend this product.

The apron is very durable and has stood up to solvents, but it uses a shoulder strap system as opposed to the normal neck and waist straps. It can be finicky to adjust.

What are the dimensions of the case?

Most other cases list height length and width, this one does not.

Low Cost Eye Wash Station?

In the short term, or for use in the field, there are a number of eyewash bottles for reasonable prices. If you get one with an eyewash cup, that's all you need.

In the long term, a fixed installation is going to be much cheaper, as it costs very little to maintain and use.

does chemical resistant gloves and apron mean acid resistant

I research an ice machine cleaner that contains phosphoric acid and I need to implement engineering controls for safety and use of the product
Phosphoric acid is fairly easy to shield against. Any waterproof chemical-resistant rubber apron would like be effective. I'd recommend reusable nitrile gloves for your hands, and I'd suggest lined gloves if you are working for longer than 30 minutes at a time. Heavy-duty latex gloves could also work.

Just don't forget to also pick up some splash-proof safety goggles - they are even more vital than gloves and aprons.

What is meant by "Limited use clothing?"

Field of Industry:: Construction
Limited-use clothing is clothing that is more durable than disposable clothing (like basic white Tyvek coveralls), but is still designed to eventually be disposable. You can wear the product until it is damaged or becomes too contaminated. I've been able to wear the my Tychem limited use coveralls several times without needing to dispose of them.

What level of protection is needed for spraying caustic soda?

We are going to be dipping animal pens in a 3% solution and will be spraying it on farm premises.
I would recommend at minimum:
Chemical splash goggles
Face shields
Chemical resistant gloves (I'd suggest reusable nitrile gloves, but heavy-duty latex gloves will also work)
Rubber / Waterproof boots

Keep the area well ventilated. If you can't do so, you will need to wear a full-face respirator with P100 (magenta) cartridges.

Also, if you are using a high-pressure power washer, wearing waterproof coveralls would recommend.
