The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility NCTRF acquired a shipboard hazardous materials list from the Naval Safety Center and conducted a survey of commercially available suit materials that could potentially provide protection against the listed materials. The types of personal protective equipment PPE currently used by the Navy were also investigated. Based on the survey, NCTRF has determined that a commercially available suit material may provide the desired level of protection. The most promising suit materials identified through this investigation will be laboratory evaluated for potential use in the manufacture of Navy hazardous protective clothing.
