Proposed ASTM Standard on Protective Clothing

ASTM International has proposed a standard, dubbed ASTM WK38096, that will measure the amount of energy being absorbed by protective accessories or clothing when compared to no protection at all. The standard is currently being developed by Subcommittee F23.20 on Physical, part of ASTM International Committee F23 on Personal Protective Clothing and Equipment. All interested parties are encouraged to participate in its ongoing development. For more information, click here.
