The weight of molten metal required to cause smoothing or pin-holing across a simulated skin placed directly behind the glove sample. Based on the length of time the material continues to burn and glow after the source of ignition is removed.
When buying industrial gloves, an understanding of the numeric or alphabetical codes and symbols used for specifying protection levels in the standards is recommended. Each chemical tested is classified in terms of breakthrough time performance level 0 to The seams of the glove shall not come apart after an ignition time of 15 seconds.
EN Thermal Heat Hazards. Contact heat resistance performance level Based on the temperature range oC at which the user will feel no pain for at least 15 seconds. If an EN level 3 or higher is obtained, the product shall record at least EN level 3 in the flammability test. Based on stanard number of cycles required to cut through the sample at a constant speed.
Based on the amount of force required to tear the sample. The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while the glove outer is placed in contact with a hot probe of defined dimensions and temperature. If you need to protect your employees with industry leading safety gloves, take a look at the following product ranges available from Showa and Skytec and ensure your workforce comply.

This test is optional and can be used as an aid to selecting gloves which require resistance to ionising radiation. Innocuousness pH All syandard are checked for compliance in terms of their pH value between 3. These cookies are completely safe and secure and will never contain any sensitive information.
It is important when you buy a pair of safety gloves that you look out for the symbols showing for which purpose specific gloves are designed.
Based on the number of cycles required to abrade through the sample given. Resistance to convective cold performance level 0 – 4 b. Skip to content Skip to navigation menu. This standard applies to gloves to staandard from Ionising Radiation and Radioactive Contamination. The chemical data information does not necessarily reflect the actual duration in the workplace. Otherwise, the maximum contact heat level shall be reported as level 2.
EN – Protective gloves against thermal risks (heat and/or fire)
Based on the length of time the glove is able to delay the transfer of heat from a flame. We will use the information provided above to contact you in relation to your enquiry. Gloves must also achieve at least Performance level 1 for abrasion standzrd tear. The number of molten metal drops required to heat the glove sample to a given level.
Classification is based on the afterflame and afterglow time and whether or not the glove seams open and the glove material melts or drips.
With this in mind, Globus have put together a series of infographics to help guide you through the important aspects of glove safety ratings. Contact Heat Standaard thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while the glove outer is placed in contact with a hot probe of defined dimensions and temperature.
The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while drops of molten metal of specified size impact the glove outer at defined rate. SATRA offers a wide range of unique member standarv and products designed to enhance technical knowledge and help improve profitability and global sales.
It is therefore necessary to measure break-through times, or the time taken for the hazardous liquid to come in contact tsandard the skin.
Safety standards help to keep us all safer at work.
The test is failed if metal droplets remain stuck to the glove material or if the specimen ignites. A performance level shall only be mentioned if a performance level stwndard 3 or 4 is obtained in the flammability test.
The fingers of a glove are exposed to a small gas flame for a specified time 3 and 15swhile the behaviour of the glove is visually observed.
