Abstract : A method has been developed for the determination of the permeability of flexible tank fabrics to liquid fuels. The methods, which employs a mass spectrometer, enables the permeabilities of fabrics at 20C and at elevated temperatures to be assessed using a test liquid of 70% iso-octane and 30% toluene. Test results have been compared with results obtained using the standard gravimetric method and recommendations have been made for future work. (Author)
