      Description:

    Protective clothing against dangerous solid, liquid and gaseous chemicals, including liquid and solid aerosols Part 1: Performance requirements for Type 1 (gas-tight) chemical protective suits

      Purpose

    This European Standard specifies the minimum requirements, test methods, marking and information supplied by the manufacturer for ventilated and non-ventilated gas-tight chemical protective suits. It specifies full body personal protective ensembles to be worn for protection against solid, liquid and gaseous chemicals, including liquid and solid aerosols. This standard does not establish minimum criteria for protection for non-chemical hazards, e.g. radiological, fire, heat, explosive hazards, infective agents. This type of equipment is not intended for total immersion in liquids. The seams, joins and assemblages attaching the accessories are included within the scope of this standard. The basic performance criteria for the components such as gloves, boots or respiratory protective equipment are given in other Standards, supplemantary requirements are provided in this standard. Particulate protection is limited to physical penetration of the particulates only. Chemicals such as violently air sensitive reagents, unstable explosives and cryogenic liquids have not been considered since protection against these additional hazards is beyond the scope of this standard.
