    Significance and Use

    2.1 This guide is intended to encourage thorough and consistent documentation of airborne particle penetration testing and its results.

    2.2 Uniform information and performance data increase the likelihood of selecting proper particle protective clothing by direct comparison of one material with another.

    2.3 A standard format for test information and data also encourages computer storage of test results for easy retrieval, comparison, and correlations.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide provides a format for documenting information and performance data for an airborne particle penetration test.

    1.2 Documented data and information are grouped into five categories that define important aspects of each test:

    1.2.1 Description of material tested,

    1.2.2 Challenge particles,

    1.2.3 Test method,

    1.2.4 Test results, and

    1.2.5 Source of the data.

    1.3 Use of this guide is facilitated by adherence to procedures outlined in a standard test method.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurements are included in this standard.

    1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
