  Description:

Protective clothing against dangerous solid, liquid and gaseous chemicals, including liquid and solid aerosols Part 2: Performance requirements for Type 1 (gas-tight) chemical protective suits for emergency teams (ET)

  Purpose

This document specifies the minimum requirements, test methods, marking and information supplied by the manufacturer, for ventilated and non-ventilated gas-tight chemical protective suits for use by emergency teams (ET). It specifies full body personal protective ensembles to be worn for protection against solid, liquid and gaseous chemicals, including liquid and solid aerosols. 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. This document does not establish minimum criteria for protection against non-chemical hazards, e.g. radiological, fire, heat and explosive hazards and 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 performance criteria for the accessories, gloves, boots or respiratory protective equipment are given in other standards. Particulate protection is limited to physical penetration of the particulates only.
