Seven different garment materials were examined for resistance to penetration by eight commonly used sprays and one concentrated pesticide formulation. The lightweight materials were four types of spunbounded olefin and a water repellent cellulostic and were compared to heavy cotton drill and rubberized cotton. The latter two materials are used for making coveralls and raingear commonly employed as applicator's protective clothing. Penetration tests were designed to mimic repeated exposure to drifting spray and exposure to concentrated pesticide formulation splashed on a worker during preparation of spray.
