Break-through-times (BTT) for a selection of common chemicals

Break-through-time (BTT) is the time when a chemical is considered to have permeated (passed through) a material. It depends primarily on the material and secondarily on the thickness (and other factors). All data refer to full contact with the chemicals at room temperature, and need to be adjusted for actual conditions and additional risks. The BTT data in this chemical protection guide originate from combined data from laboratory tests and our internal database. The BTT values are calculated from best-fit to experimental points and rounded downwards to closest EN374 Class (and two additional lower levels (0 – 5 min) that might be useful when selecting gloves for work operations of very short duration).
