Chemical Terms and Processes to Note

Permeation The process by which a chemical moves through protective clothing materials at the molecular level. The passage of a liquid or gas through protective clothing consists of three steps; absorption, diffusion and desorption.

Penetration The process by which a substance moves through a closure, seam or pinhole in protective clothing on a non-molecular level.

Breakthrough Time The number of minutes from initial contact with a test chemical until it is first detected on the inside of the protective clothing measured using sensitive analytical testing. It is essentially the number of minutes until your skin is exposed inside the gloves or other protective clothing.

Degradation The deleterious change in one or more physical properties of a protective clothing material due to contact with a chemical. Degradation changes may include delaminating, discoloration, hardening or loss of tensile strength.

Concentration The amount or mass of a constituent divided by the total mass of a solution. Normally all Organic Solvents tested in this site are 100% pure. Acids and Caustics are solutions in water. In permeation testing of acids, in particular, the concentration will affect the breakthrough time. More concentrated acids will permeate sooner than dilutions.

Heavy-Exposure In permeation testing this term refers to constant total immersion of the protective clothing material in the test chemical which represents the worst type of heavy exposure. The ASTM F739 Test Standard and EN 374 European Test Standard refers to this type of exposure.

Intermittent Exposure ASTM F 1383 Standard Test Method for Permeation of Liquids or Gases through Protective Clothing Materials under Conditions of Intermittent Contact. SHOWA used a contact time of 1 minute where the glove material was fully immersed and 9 minutes of purge time where the glove material was unexposed to the chemical which was repeated for 240 minutes.
