Swatch Test Results of Commercial Chemical Protective Gloves to Challenge by Chemical Warfare Agents: Executive Summary   [open pdf - 25KB]

Swatches from eleven commercially available chemical protective gloves were challenged with liquid droplets of Sarin (GB) and mustard (HD) using modifications of the static diffusion procedure described in TOP 8-2-501. The cumulative mass of each agent that permeated each swatch was determined over time, and the results for all swatches were used to determine a weighted-average cumulative mass for each suit. From this data, a break-through time was calculated for each glove. From this data, a breakthrough time was calculated for each glove/agent combination for the purposes of comparison.
