||Permeation of a 2,4-D isooctyl ester formulation through neoprene, nitrile, and Tyvek protection materials
||Aug. 1989, Vol.50, No.8, p.438-446. Illus. 24 ref.
||Tyvek (laminated saranax) and unsupported nitrile gloves gave protection from penetration against formulation concentrates and aqueous emulsions of Esteron 99 [isooctyl ester of(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)acetic acid)] under conditions simulating extremes of field conditions. Neoprene gloves, whether unsupported or supported, lined or unlined, were permeated much more than unsupported nitrile gloves. An initial penetration was observed for all the materials. Degradation occurred in the neoprene and supported golve materials. The selection procedure was sufficient to predict correctly that nitrile would protect better than neoprene; however, direct experimental confirmation was necessary to select the type of nitrile material which provided optimum protection.
