For measuring the permeation of several hazardous chemicals through materials for protective clothing, gloves and boots.
Choosing the right material for protective equipment is crucial. We use permeation tests to measure how fast or how much of a chemical permeates the material . These measurements allow you to make well-considered material choices and give you certainty that the material provides the expected level of protection when exposed hazardous chemicals.
ProQares is one of the few independent non-government laboratories that has chemical warfare agents available for permeation tests. These allow us to map out the protection provided by materials for military purposes in particular.
