Patent 4902558 Issued on February 20, 1990. Estimated Expiration Date: September 29, 2008. Estimated Expiration Date is calculated based on simple USPTO term provisions. It does not account for terminal disclaimers, term adjustments, failure to pay maintenance fees, or other factors which might affect the term of a patent.
Improved polymer barrier for protective garments for personal protection against hazardous chemicals (e.g. epoxy products, organic solvents and pesticides) and a rational method of selecting polymer membranes with optimal permeation resistance against hazardous chemicals. As an excellent barrier against epoxy products and solvents a protective garment contains a membrane of a vinyl alcoholethylene copolymer. Said copolymer was selected by the invented optimization method (the three dimensional solubility parameter concept).
