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.

EN 388:2016 ONLY
EN 388:2003 Standards specifies physical and mechanical aggression caused by abrasion, blade cut, tearing and puncture. EN388:2016 updates the existing standard with this new test method for abrasion, blade cut & impact resistance. EN ISO 13997:1999 (TDM Test) records cut results as a Newton value – the force of the blade on the glove material needed to cut through the material 20mm. The results are represented on a scale A-F.

5 Straight blade cut resistance EN 388:2016 ONLY
Based on the amount of force to achieve the moment of cut-through. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from A to F

6 Impact resistance EN388:2016 ONLY
Impact-resistant properties to 5J, Performance Level P

Protective Gloves Against Thermal Risks (Heat and/or Fire) 

EN 407: 2004

This standard specifies thermal performance for protective gloves against heat and/or fire. The heat and flame pictogram is accompanied by a 6 digit number.

Requirements

Performance levels 1-4

f) resistance to a large melting metal spray

Amount of spray required to raise the glove to a certain temperature.

Performance levels 1-4

e) resistance to small melting metal spray

Amount of spray required to raise the glove to a certain temperature.

Performance levels 1-4

D) resistance to radiating heat

Time required to raise a given temperature level

Performance levels 1-4

c) resistance to convective heat

time during which the glove is able to delay the transfer of heat of a flame

Performance levels 1-4

b) resistance to contact heat

Temperature (within the range of 100 degrees to 500 degrees) at which the person wearing the gloves will not feel any pain (for a period of at least 15 seconds).

Performance levels 1-4

A) Resistance to flammability:

Time during which the material remains lit and continues to be consumed after the ignition source has been eliminated.

CE Food Safe 

European legislation with respect to Food Contract Materials (Directive EC1935/2004) requires that food contract materials shall not transfer their ingredients to food and must not modify the organoleptic properties (I.e colour, smell, texture and taste) of the food. Products intended for food contact shall be labelled as such.  

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.
