    Abstract

    In recent years, interest in and testing of chemical protective clothing has increased significantly. Permeation and immersion testing have produced large amounts of breakthrough time, permeation rate, and weight-change information on clothing materials. This information has been compiled into a relational data base system which operates on a personal computer and is available as a commercial product, CPCbase. Also included in the system are descriptions of the clothing materials tested, their sources, and the literature references for the data. The system is menu-driven with fixed search routines and produces formatted reports. In addition, the user can add new or proprietary information and can tailor searches and reports to meet specific needs.
