The first digit denotes the degree of protection against solid substances; the second digit gives the degree of protection against water. Depending on the product line, there are containers which offer protection against water spray, IP 54 (K470), protection against water jets, IP 65 (Mitraset or K470 IP 65) as well as immersion-proof or moisture vapor proof containers IP 67 (K475, P472).
