Resumen For the purposes of this assessment, the authors investigated the properties of several types of material, the efficiency of methods (beating and washing) for the removal of the dust deposited on the surface of these materials, the effects of the quantity of dust deposited and of washing on their imperviousness and air permeability, as well as the physiological consequences of wearing protective clothing made of one of the materials examined. A detailed account is given of the tests carried out and of checks of the thermoregulatory processes and of stress on the circulatory system performed in the laboratory on 10 subjects tested on a bicycle ergometer. The increase in the quantities measured was found to be significant; nevertheless, not even the largest deviations exceeded the organism's capacity. Conclusions are drawn from this regarding the manufacture of the tested clothing, as well as on the duration of work and rest periods for wearers of this type of clothing.
