||Method of determining the water vapour permeability of safety shoes

||Wirtschaftsverlag NW, Postfach 10 11 10, Am Alten Hafen 113-115, 27511 Bremerhaven, Germany, 1992. 62p. Illus. 24 ref. Price: DEM 17.00.
||A measurement chamber for the determination of the water vapour permeability of safety shoes is described and illustrated. The entire shoe is involved in the measurement, while the method described in German standard DIN 53333 determines only the water vapour permeability of the material used for the shoe uppers. The accuracy of the method was verified and the water vapour permeability of a number of different safety shoes was determined. A clear connection with the size and shape of the shoes was found. The results did not correlate with those of the DIN method. A standardised procedure for carrying out the measurements on the complete shoe is described. Detailed summaries in German, English and French.
