Gloves are flexed, stretched, pressured, and abraded which can cause premature chemical breakthrough and alter reliance on ASTM laboratory breakthrough data. PERMEA-TEC pads, worn under gloves during actual field use, show the point at which breakthrough occurs. This information enables the safety professional to select a glove that will perform optimally in terms of protection, employee acceptance, and cost effectiveness. PERMEA-TEC pads are sensitive to 3 to 5 µg for isocyanates.
The patches are suitable for testing of a range of Isocyanates bases products. Please specify whether your compound of interest is an Aromatic isocyanate compounds such as TDI – toluene di-isocyanate; MDI – diphenyl methane di-isocyanate, NDI – naphthalene di-isocyanate or and aliphatic isocyanates based product such as HDI – hexamethylene di-isocyanate or MIC – methyl isocyanate.
