Penetration analyses of protective suits and boots against jet fuel (JP-8)
Penetration analyses with jet fuel have been carried out on three different protective suits and one pair ofprotective boots. The analyses were performed with a single cell permeation system developed at Norwegian Defence Research Establishment, Division for Protection and Materiel (FFIBM). A permeation rate of I j.ig/(cm 2 min) was used as breakthrough limit in these analyses. The analyses showed that the protective suits had limited protection against jet fuel based on our test criteria. The protective boots showed better protection properties.
