A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. The deleterious effects of these chemicals can range from acute trauma such as skin irritation and burn to chronic degenerative disease, such as cancer.

What are ASTM F Safety Standards? |

Since engineering controls may not eliminate all possible exposures, aetm is often placed on reducing the potential for direct skin contact through the use of protective clothing that resists permeation, penetration, and degradation. This test method determines resistance to penetration only.

Resistance to permeation and degradation should be determined by other test methods. The resistance to visible penetration of the test liquid is determined with the liquid in continuous contact with the normally outside surface of the test specimen. For more sensitive analysis use Test Method F to determine permeation. The values in parentheses are for information only. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations asym to use.


Current edition approved January 10, Originally approved in Last previous edition approved in as F – 99a. Summary of Test Method 4.

If the liquid passes through the specimen, the material fails the test for resistance to penetration of the liquid. However, it is possible that differences in chemical and molecular properties for example, surface tension lead to different results. See Table 1 for parts and materials. A transparent cover is optional. The purpose of the screen is to limit distention of the test specimen to 0. Examples of retaining screens are 11 by 11 nylon screen, 14 by 14 polypropylene screen, and 13 by 13 polyester screen.

Random specimens shall be generated as described in Practice E For nonuniform samples, record the lowest values. The droplet must remain easily visible to ensure that a droplet that penetrates the material will be seen.

If not, one of the following methods has usually been effective in enhancing droplet visibility by producing a characteristic discoloration. A transparent cover see Fig. BoxChicago, IL F — 03 FIG. Also, bring the liquid to the test temperature. With the test cell vertically oriented, allowing the air to vent, carefully,? Use of a funnel is one way to make?

The specimen fails if a droplet of liquid appears or a characteristic discoloration see 9. If this occurs, record the failure, and terminate the test. If this occurs, record it as a failure and terminate the test. Flush the test cell with an appropriate wash liquid to remove or render harmless any traces of the test chemical.

Remove the specimen and gasket from the cell and discard.

Clean any external parts of the test cell touched by the liquid. If the material was taken from garments, report under subheadings for each material, composite, type of seam, or other constructions tested, and its position on the garment.


What are ASTM F903 Safety Standards?

If the temperature of the astmm and liquid were different at the start of the test, report both. Precision and Bias NOTE 2—Material is steel. NOTE 2—Material is aluminum. NOTE 2—Material is transparent shatterproof-resistant plastic sheet.
