The permeability of rubber and PE gloves, PE bags and strippable PVC paint to HTO, Na125I, H235SO4, H332PO4,141CeCl3,89SrCl2, and,137CsCl in aqueous solution was tested. All materials were permeable to HTO and Na125I. Whereas rubber gloves were permeable the other materials were impermeable to H235SO4. The remaining radioactive compounds showed no penetration. The diffusion coefficients of the penetrating compounds were
calculated on the basis of Fick's First Law for the respective materials. The permeability to Na125I and HTO decreases in the order rubber, PVC paint, and PE. Penetration increases in the order H235SO4, Na125I, and HTO.
