A limiting factor for clothing ensembles inherent during heat stress exposures is the evaporative resistance, which can be used to compare candidate ensembles and in rational models of heat exchange. In this study, the apparent total evaporative resistance of five clothing ensembles (cotton work clothes, cotton coveralls, and coveralls made of Tyvek® 1424 and 1427, NexGen® and Tychem QC®) was estimated empirically from wear trials using a progressive heat stress protocol and from clothing… CONTINUE READING
