This Test Operations Procedure TOP provides the current standard methods for testing the permeation of low volatility chemicals, such as persistent nerve agent VX, through swatches of materials. Swatches can be taken from clothing or equipment that is new, with or without pretreatments, and that was previously subjected to periods of wear under varying conditions of field use, storage, andor environmental exposures. 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.
