CPCbase, a Chemical Protective-Clothing Data Base for the Personal Computer


In recent years, interest in and testing of chemical protective clothing has increased significantly. Permeation and immersion testing have produced large amounts of breakthrough time, permeation rate, and weight-change information on clothing materials. This information has been compiled into a relational data base system which operates on a personal computer and is available as a commercial product, CPCbase. Also included in the system are descriptions of the clothing materials tested, their sources, and the literature references for the data. The system is menu-driven with fixed search routines and produces formatted reports. In addition, the user can add new or proprietary information and can tailor searches and reports to meet specific needs.
