Abstract : The Post-Decontamination Vapor Sampling and Analytical Test Methods Test Operations Procedure (TOP) contains the procedures for the measurement of contaminant vapor present after an item is decontaminated that could pose an exposure hazard to unprotected personnel. The chemical contaminants may include chemical warfare agents (CWAs) or their simulants, nontraditional agents (NTAs), toxic industrial chemicals (TICs), and toxic industrial materials (TIMs). A vapor collection system is used to capture coupon off-gassing. Concentration is measured using chromatographic analytical methods. This laboratory-scale test method uses a range of test articles from coupons, panels, and small fielded equipment items.
