The factory-based permethrin coating technique has only recently been developed. Consequently, no data are available on residual activity, laundering, and weathering resistance in impregnated battle dress uniforms (BDUs) worn under military deployment conditions, or on the cross-contamination potential of such uniforms. Herein, factory-impregnated BDUs worn-out during military deployment to Afghanistan were investigated for residual permethrin concentration, residual efficacy against arthropod… CONTINUE READING
