New Standard for Chemical Permeation Testing Approved by ASTM Personal Protective Clothing Committee

Chemical protective clothing has been widely used to protect skin from health hazards that can be found in the workplace or during a terrorist attack. A new ASTM International standard provides directions in using a computer program, called a permeation calculator, to analyze data following a permeation test, in order to determine when chemicals have gotten inside the clothing.

The new standard, ASTM F2815, Practice for Chemical Permeation Through Protective Clothing Materials: Testing Data Analysis by Use of a Computer Program, was developed by Subcommittee F23.30 on Chemicals, part of ASTM International Committee F23 on Personal Protective Clothing and Equipment.
