Reactive fabrics were studied for the Integrated Protective Fabric System project. The goal of the project was to develop a protective garment that has a lower thermal burden on the wearer by allowing heat and moisture transport. The garment prevents exposure to outside chemical weapons agents CWAs by reacting or reducing permeation of the CWA. By adding a reagent or reactive catalyst to the fabric, permeation can be decreased. 8-Hydroxyquinoline and benzisothiazolinone were studied as reagents to decrease permeation. Headspace gas chromatography was used to measure permeation of fabrics treated with the reagents.
