Standard Test Method for Measuring Repellency, Retention, and Penetration of Liquid Pesticide Formulation Through Protective Clothing Materials
|Publication Date:||1 December 2011|
This test method measures repellency, retention and penetration of a known volume of liquid pesticide when applied to protective clothing material. No external hydrostatic or mechanical pressure is applied to the test specimen during or after the application of the liquid pesticide.
This test method is designed to measure performance of protective clothing materials at two levels of contamination. Low level of contamination is achieved by applying 0.1-mL liquid formulation and high level by applying 0.2 mL.
This test method does not measure resistance to permeation or degradation.
This test method is suitable for field strength pesticide formulations. This test method may not be suitable for testing protective clothing materials against volatile pesticides.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
