Tests and Reports
Test No. 4, Nov 2021:
The purpose of the test was to determine the degree of protection offered by the tested garments against exposure to polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in fire gas – after use during a total of 24 smoke dives (600 minutes/10 hours).
Summary of Test 4
- After 24 smoke diving exercises, comprising a total of 600 minutes exposure to wood smoke, the protection factor was found to be about 132 for the garment comprising adsorptive underwear, compared to about 7 for the standard garment.
- The average penetration of PAHs, after 24 smoke diving exercises, is roughly 70 times higher through the standard garment combination compared to the adsorptive garment combination.
Test No. 1-3, May 2021:
Report that summarizes the results from Tests no. 1-3, which were carried out 2019 and 2020.
Summary of test 1-3:
- The protection factor against PHA for the combination new unused CPP undergarment + fire suit (EN469), was measured to 3300.
- The protection factor against PAH for the combination used CPP undergarment + fire suit (EN469) was measured to 660.
- To be compared the protection factor against PHA for the combination standard new undergarment + fire suit (EN469) which was measured to 15.
