Resistance to sulfur mustard HD penetration was investigated for two commercially available thermoplastic elastomers, Santoprene and Alcryn. To pass the Liquid Agent Vapour Penetration Test LAVPT, Santoprene sheet needed to be at least 1.03 mm thick while Alcryn sheet needed to be at least 0.73 mm thick. Therefore, to pass the LAVPT, Alcryn sheet could be 29 thinner than Santoprene sheet.
