Title ASTM F739 method for testing the permeation resistance of protective clothing materials: Critical analysis with proposed changes in procedure and test-cell design
Bibliographic information Aug. 1998, Vol.59, No.8, p.547-556. Illus. 24 ref.
Abstract Permeation tests were performed on each of four chemical protective clothing materials with 44 organic solvents in accordance with ASTM Method F739-96. The recommended collection stream flow rate range was in many cases insufficient to accurately determine the steady state permeation rate. Testing at elevated temperatures also revealed temperature gradients within the test system. Recommendations for a modified test cell are put forward. Topics: chemical protective clothing; comment on standard; comparative analysis; description of equipment; description of technique; evaluation of technique; materials for personal protection; organic solvents; permeability testing; protective gloves.
