In our research, both theoretical and practical approaches to the assessment of permeability of barrier materials used to produce protective garments of an isolative type designed for body surface protection have been studied. The main goal of this paper is to study the thermal resistance for a barrier material of the ventilated anti-gas isolative garment OPCH-05 which is used in the conditions of the Czech Armed Forces for the Chemical Corps specialists´ protection against the effects of toxic compounds. The thermal analysis of samples was performed using the differential scanning calorimetry, the surface structural changes were determined via the 3D optical profilometer and the gas permeation measurements were performed by means of the integral permeation method. Based on permeation results, the appropriate time limits and the temperatures of the exposure, during which the chemical protective garment could be securely used, were evaluated.
