Abstract This booklet provides recommendations for the selection of chemical protective clothing materials based on published and unpublished test data. The guide does not take into account the intended use or physical demands (resistance to tear, puncture resistance) of the clothing. Colour coded tables indicate the chemical breakthrough performance of 15 protective materials (including glove, boot and suit materials) against over 500 chemicals. An additional table provides a hazard rating for each chemical. The selection and use of protective clothing is also discussed. (See CIS 95-1821 for previous edition).
