Standard Test Method for Resistance of Chemical Protective Clothing Materials to Liquid Permeation—Permeation Cup Method
|Publication Date:||1 June 2012|
|ICS Code (Protective clothing):||13.340.10|
This test method measures the barrier effectiveness of a specimen of protective clothing upon continuous contact with a liquid.
Procedure A-For use when a value for the cumulative amount of chemical permeated in 1 h is desired.
Procedure B-For use when breakthrough detection time and permeation rate values are desired.
Although not addressed herein, the effect of the test chemical on the clothing material can be determined by comparing the weight or other physical properties of the specimen before and after the permeation test.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
