Abstract : This test operations procedure (TOP) provides the current standard methods for testing the permeation of liquid and vapor challenge chemical agents and simulants through swatches of materials. Swatches can be taken from clothing or equipment that is new, with or without pretreatment(s), and/or material that was previously subjected to periods of wear under varying conditions of field use, storage, and/or environmental exposure(s). These procedures are designed to be used as part of an overall assessment program evaluating the material performance, manufacturing, and integration with other pieces of the protective ensemble.
