Protective clothing -- Protection against chemicals -- Determination of resistance of protective clothing materials to permeation by liquids and gases

ISO 6529:2013 describes laboratory test methods to determine the resistance of materials used in protective clothing, including gloves and including footwear, when the footwear is an integral part of the clothing, to permeation by liquid or gaseous chemicals under the conditions of either continuous or intermittent contact.

Method A is applicable to testing against liquid chemicals, either volatile or soluble in water, expected to be in continuous contact with the protective clothing material.

Method B is applicable to testing against gaseous chemicals expected to be in continuous contact with the protective clothing material.

Method C is applicable to testing against gaseous and liquid chemicals, either volatile or soluble in water, expected to be in intermittent contact with the protective clothing material.

These test methods assess the permeation resistance of the protective clothing material under laboratory conditions in terms of breakthrough time, permeation rate and cumulative permeation. These test methods also enable qualitative observations to be made of the effects of the test chemical on the material under test.

These test methods are only suitable for measuring permeation by liquids and gases.

These test methods address only the performance of materials or certain materials' constructions (e.g. seams).
