Perspectives and trends in individual protection
The area of the individual protection of persons fulfilling professional tasks in an environment contaminated with chemical, radioactive and biological substances is focused on development of devices designated for protection of both breathing organs and body surface. Current knowledge of material engineering enable very effective application of new types of materials from which final devices designated for protection are produced. However, it is necessary to permanently verify their quality, and subsequently conform them to user´s particular requirements. The presentation will focus on some important technological trends, the application of which the present types of established and used materials and final products have been significantly improved in terms of resistance against the effects of toxic compounds. We will also mention the latest technical means by which current and even new developed materials are tested and evaluated not only in the scope of the Czech Armed Forces.
