Protective Gloves : General Requirements

EN420 : 2003 + A1 2009

This standard defines the general requirements for glove design and construction, innocuousness, cleaning instructions, electrostatic properties, sizing, dexterity, water vapour transmission and absorption along with marking and information

EN 388
Gloves giving protection from mechanical risks


Protection against mechanical hazards is expressed by a pictogram followed by four numbers (performance levels), each representing test performance against a specific hazard.

1 Resistance to abrasion
Based on the number of cycles required to abrade through the sample glove (abrasion by sandpaper under a stipulated pressure). The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4 depending on how many revolutions are required to make a hole in the material. The higher the number, the better the glove. See table below.

2 Blade cut resistance
Based on the number of cycles required to cut through the sample at a constant speed. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.

3 Tear resistance
Based on the amount of force required to tear the sample. 
The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.

4 Puncture resistance
Based on the amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standard sized point. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.

Protective Gloves Against Cold

EN 511:2006

The European standard specific the requirements the test methods for gloves which product against conductive cold down to -50degrees Celsius. This cold can be linked to the climate conditions or an industrial activity.

Requirements

Performance levels 0-1

c) water penetration

Performance levels 1-4

B) Resistance to contract cold

Performance levels 1-4

A) Resistance to convective cold

ANSI/ISEA 105-2011

American National a Standard for Hand Protection

This standard addresses the classification and testing of hand protection for specific performance properties related to chemical and industrials applications. Hand protection includes gloves, mittens, partial gloves, or other items covering the hand or a portion of the hand that are intended to provide protection against or resistance to a specific hazard.
