15027- 1 thermal protection. One of the criteria for this test is that
five people in 15° C water for two hours must not lose more than two
degrees in body core temperature. Test subjects in Baltic floatation
suits lost only 0,8° C. As these suits provide the same buoyant
properties as 50N buoyancy aids these suits are only suitable for
