Title Pesticide glove permeation analysis: Comparison of the ASTM F739 Test method with an automated flow-through reverse-phase liquid chromatography procedure
Bibliographic information Feb. 1990, Vol.51, No.2, p.79-83. Illus. 28 ref.
Abstract The standard ASTM F739-85 testing procedure and an automated in-vitro diffusion analysis (AIDA) procedure were used to determine breakthrough times and penetration rates for 4 protective glove materials for 2 commercially available pesticides. Both procedure demonstrated no detectable breakthrough of the pesticides for nitrile butyl rubber and polyvinyl gloves, although same permeation was observed in some tests on rubber and neoprene gloves when using the AIDA method. The AIDA method has the advantage of providing a fully automated procedure that is especially amenable to glove permeation testing that requires routine sampling for extended test durations.
