Significance and Use
This guide is intended to encourage thorough and consistent documentation of permeation testing and its results.
Uniform information and performance data increase the likelihood of selecting proper chemical protective clothing material (CPC) by permitting direct comparisons of one product with another.
A standard format for test information and data also encourages computer storage of test results for easy retrieval, comparison and correlations.
1.1 This guide provides a format for documenting information and performance data from a permeation test.
1.2 Documented information and data are grouped into five major categories that define important aspects of each test:
1.2.1 Protective Clothing Material,
1.2.2 Test Method,
1.2.3 Challenge Chemical,
1.2.4 Test Results, and
1.2.5 Source of the Data.
1.3 Use of this guide is facilitated by adherence to the procedures outlined in a standard test method.
