SECURITY CLASSIFICATION OF: Earlier project activities demonstrated that half-face respirators integrated with fibrillar polymer structures provide much higher overall fit factors (FFoverall) against challenging facial skin conditions (including unshaved, wet and wet-unshaved) when compared with a conventional (non-modified) half-mask elastomeric respirator. The previous report covered the initiation of comprehensive evaluation of polyurethane microfibrillar arrays integrated with half-face respirator mask using the NIOSH 25-subject bivariate panel; this effort was continued into this reporting
