This test method determines the puncture resistance of a protective clothing material specimen by measuring the force required to cause a sharp-edged puncture probe to penetrate through the specimen.
The method will fill the gap in puncture testing methods between blunt probes used in F1342 and hypodermic needle probes.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
