This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2014. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 16603:2004 describes a laboratory test method for measuring the penetration resistance of clothing materials to blood and body fluids. This test method uses a synthetic blood in continuous contact with the material specimen at specified set of conditions using the ISO 13994 test apparatus.
This test method is not always effective in testing protective clothing materials having thick, inner liners which readily absorb the synthetic blood.
