1.1 This document specifies special items of clothing (cleanroom garments) designed to protect aerospace products from electrostatic discharge and from contaminants released by personnel and garments. Special clothing includes low linting coveralls, footwear, and head covers.

1.2 The function of cleanroom garments is to contain the contaminants generated by people and to minimize contaminants from the garments.

1.3 Two types of fabrics can be selected for the garments. Both types are inherently static-dissipative materials to prevent electrical discharges that can damage sensitive hardware or initiate explosions in the presence of flammable vapors. The material specified for “hazardous environments” is flame resistant and provides additional protection to the wearer. Selection of garment design and fabric should be based on the user's needs with respect to functional and environmental requirements.

1.4 Additional background information can be found in SD-TR-91-26 and IEST-RP-CC003.3.

1.5  This standard is intended to be in compliance with the ASTM policy on Fire Standards.2Flammability tests specified in this standard should be used to measure and describe the properties of fabrics in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions and should not be used to describe or appraise the fabrics under actual fire conditions. However, results of the tests may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment which takes into account all of the factors which are pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of operations in controlled environment areas.

1.6 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.7  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
