Title: Test operations procedure (TOP) 8-2-501, permeation and penetration of air-permeable, semipermeable, and impermeable materials with chemical agents or simulants (swatch testing). Final report

Abstract

This test operations procedure (TOP) provides the current standard for planning and conducting tests to measure the permeation or penetration of swatches of materials by chemical agents such as distilled mustard (HD), or the nerve agents sarin (GB), or V-agent (VX). The swatches may be single or multi-layered, inert, sorptive or reactive. Swatches may be taken from candidate or standardized fabrics, in which case application of this TOP can provide relative ranking or screening information about the ability of the standardized and/or candidate materials to resist permeation or penetration by chemical agents. Swatches may also be taken from garments that are new, have been stored, or have been worn for various times under different conditions. Testing these material swatches using the procedures in the TOP can provide data to evaluate the effects of the different condition of wear. This TOP is not adequate for the assessment of the ability of an end item clothing made from any tested material to protect the wearer. The data obtained by these procedures cannot be correlated to field conditions. One or more of the test procedures given may be required in a detailed test plan (DTP).
