Title (German)

Schutzkleidung - Prüfverfahren für Chemikalienschutzkleidung - Teil 4: Bestimmung der Beständigkeit gegen das Durchdringen von Flüssigkeitsspray (Spray-Test) (ISO 17491-4:2008 + Amd. 1:2016); Deutsche Fassung EN ISO 17491-4:2008 + A1:2016


This consolidated version of DIN EN ISO 17491-4:2008 includes Amendment 1. This standard specifies methods for determining the resistance of chemical protective clothing to penetration by sprays of liquid chemicals at two different levels of intensity: a) Method A: low-level spray test. This is applicable to clothing that covers the full body surface and is intended to be worn when there is a potential risk of exposure to small quantities of spray or accidental low-volume splashes of a liquid chemical. b) Method B: high-level spray test. This is applicable to clothing with spray-tight connections between different parts of the clothing and, if applicable, between the clothing and other items of personal protective equipment, which covers the full body surface and which is intended to be worn when there is a risk of exposure to sprayed particles of liquid. This standard does not address chemical permeation resistance of the materials from which the chemical protective clothing is made as this is defined in other standards.
