    Revision of F1359 / F1359M - 13 Standard Test Method for Liquid Penetration Resistance of Protective Clothing or Protective Ensembles Under a Shower Spray While on a Mannequin

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1359 / F1359M - 16

    Developed by Subcommittee: F23.30 | Committee F23 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The Department of Defense is sponsoring a project to improve the reliability and relevance of this test method given its application in several end product specification standards. Specific efforts will entail the development of sensors to replace current visual/tactile methods for determining liquid penetration resistance. Additional change will be specified for standardizing the test equipment and procedures for better precision. An interlaboratory test program will be carried out.
