ASTM F2878

Standard Test Method for Protective Clothing Material Resistance to Hypodermic Needle Puncture
Testing Method
The ASTM F2878-10 test method uses a 25 gauge needle to determine the force required to cause a hypodermic needle to penetrate through protective clothing or material. The puncture probe (25G needle) travels at a 90˚ angle into a specimen at a velocity of 500mm/min. Results are reported in Newtons and the average of a minimum of 12 specimens are used to report the classification level (1-5 scale).
