    Abstract

    This specification establishes the minimum performance, classification, and labeling requirements for protective clothing worn by operators applying pesticide products, primarily field strength, in liquid form. It addresses protection provided by protective clothing items that include, but are not limited to, liquid-tight or spray-tight garments, coveralls, jackets, shirts, and pants, with the exception of those used for the protection of the head, hands, and feet. It does not cover protection against biocides, fumigants, or highly volatile liquids. All protective clothing shall be tested and classified by the level of protection based on material, seam, and garment requirements. These requirements include liquid penetration resistance, resistance to penetration by liquid under pressure, resistance to permeation, breaking strength, and tearing strength. The garments shall be supplied with permanent labels and sheets detailing instruction for use, product technical information, and chemical resistance information.
