||The permeation of substituted chlorosilanes through selected protective clothing
||Feb. 1997, Vol.58, No.2, p.110-115. Illus. 13 ref.
||The permeation resistance of a range of glove and suit materials against commercially available chlorosilanes was tested by a standard test method. Breakthrough times are listed for each material. Of the glove barriers tested, Viton┐, 4H┐ laminate and Silver Shield┐ provided the best breakthrough resistance, in excess of 6h in most cases. All protective clothing barriers provided at least 8h of breakthrough resistance, although there was evidence of degradation. The selection of protective clothing based on performance against the hydrolysis product (hydrogen chloride) was found not to be valid. It appears that chlorosilanes more closely mimic the permeation behaviour of chlorinated organic compounds, such as carbon tetrachloride.
