The three most important things to evaluate when selecting Chemical Protective Clothing (CPC) are 1) evidence of degradation of the garment exposed to a chemical; 2) breakthrough time, and 3) permeation rate. Because proper CPC selection must be based on permeation and degradation tests performed upon specific manufacturer products, you need an information source that enables you to access test results quickly and easily. Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation and Degradation Compendium is that source. This remarkable compendium is based on the world's largest international CPC database, containing over 12,000 results from tests of more than 660 chemicals and mixtures against more than 250 CPC models. Every test result has a complete reference source.Use Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation and Degradation Compendium as a supplement to your Material Safety Data Sheets to help select the best garments for your particular needs. Use it also as a convenient printed and bound source of all the data in the companion publication "Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation and Degradation Database".It will be just as important to use this information to evaluate your existing stock of CPC to determine which chemicals they should not be used with. The vast amount of critical information contained in the Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation and Degradation Compendium makes it an essential reference for industrial hygienists, lab managers and technicians, workers in chemical laboratories, safety professionals, emergency response personnel, fire fighters, and regulators.
