    Get the latest information on the current and future state of the personal protective clothing and equipment industry. This book features 17 peer-reviewed papers from academic and industrial researchers. The papers were part of the ongoing symposia series sponsored by ASTM International Committee F23 on Personal Protective Clothing and Equipment that has spanned over 30 years.

    Featured papers discuss the challenges facing those developing, testing, and using PPE, and the common goal of increasing protection for all users. Topics include:

    – the impacts of soiling and repeated laundering on protective clothing
    – physiological impact of PPE
    – PPE for industry, first responders and members of the military
    – PPE standards development
