Nonwovens block pesticide penetration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Droplets from a laboratory spray nozzle were judged to simulate field conditions of pesticide spray impinging on nonwoven fabric, tested for protective clothing. Uncoated Tyvek was shown to provide barrier qualities against chlorobenzilate, dicofol, and ethion. Alternative fabrics include spunbond/melt-blown/spunbond, Sontara, and two experimental fabrics.
