The three most important things to evaluate when selecting Chemical Protective Clothing (CPC) are 1) evidence of degradation of the garment exposed to a chemical; 2) breakthrough time, and 3) permeation rate. Because proper CPC selection must be based on permeation and degradation tests performed upon specific manufacturer products, you need an information source that enables you to access test results quickly and easily. Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database is that source. It is the world's largest international CPC database, containing over 12,000 results from tests of more than 660 chemicals and mixtures against more than 250 CPC models. Every test result has a complete reference source.
Use Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database as a supplement to your Material Safety Data Sheets to help select the best garments for your particular needs. It will be just as important to use this information to evaluate your existing stock of CPC to determine which chemicals they should not be used with. Furthermore, the powerful searching capabilities built into the database programs help to provide rapid responses in emergency situations, especially when used on portable computers.
Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database is completely menu-driven and features automatic installation for quick and easy use. It can be searched by such key items as chemical, chemical class, garment material, manufacturer, product model number, and reference source. The powerful searching programs performs "and/or"-type searches, and the results may be automatically printed or exported to disk files. Common synonyms are also listed so computerized searches will easily locate every chemical of interest.
The IBM version of Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database can be used on IBM-compatible machines with 640K RAM and a hard drive. You should have DOS Version 2.0 or higher and at least 1MB of available hard drive disk space to use the program.
The power and versatility of Chemical Protective Clothing Permeation/Degradation Database makes it essential for industrial hygienists, lab managers and technicians, workers in chemical laboratories, safety professionals, emergency response personnel, fire fighters, and regulators.
