This European Standard specifies a method for determining the resistance of chemical protective clothing to penetration by sprays of liquid chemicals. This European Standard is applicable to clothing which may comprise one or more items and which is intended to be worn when there is risk of exposure to slight splashes of a liquid chemical or to spray particles that coalesce and run off the surface of the garment. This European Standard is applicable to clothing which is intended to be resistant to penetration under conditions which usually require total body surface cover, but do not demand the wearing of gas-tight clothing. This European Standard is not applicable to the permeation of liquid chemicals through the materials from which the clothing is made.
