ASTM F1342 Protective Clothing Material Resistance to Puncture

ASTM F1342 evaluates puncture resistance of protective clothing materials which may include plastics or elastomeric films, coated fabrics, flexible materials, laminates, or textile materials. ASTM F1342 is not intended to measure puncture resistance to all types of punctures encountered using protective clothing material.

What is ASTM F1342?

ASTM F1342 involves a procedure where a puncture probe of specified dimensions is used for puncturing specimens. ASTM F1342 evaluates puncture resistance of protective clothing materials, specifically for puncture forced on specimens perpendicular to material surface. There is no supporting structure under the material specimen.
