    Get 23 peer-reviewed technical papers from the Tenth Symposium on Performance of Protective Clothing and Equipment. Paper topics include flame exposures, chemical and biological protection, arc flash protection, and blast protection for military and law enforcement.

    The goals of these papers are to:

    – Showcase current research and advances in personal protective clothing and equipment
    – Define and discuss challenges facing those developing, testing, and using personal protective clothing and equipment
    – Promote communication and information sharing between researchers, manufacturers, users, and government agencies
    – Assess the need for new and/or revised standards

    ASTM Committee F23 stresses the importance of ongoing research and testing in the personal protective clothing and equipment industry. In this collection, readers will also learn about emerging issues including a better understanding of physiological impact of protective clothing, and innovative ways to reduce heat stress.
