What are en 374 gloves?

EN 374 is a chemical-resistant glove standard that was last modified in 2016. It has wide scope, testing a glove’s response to a wide range of chemicals while taking into account permeability, breakthrough time, shrinkage and more.

What are the European standard of gloves?

The European standard DIN EN 407 regulates the requirements for safety gloves that provide protection against thermal risks in applications involving heat. Safety gloves certified according to this standard protect the wearer against contact heat, radiant heat and small splashes of molten metal, for example.

Is standard for safety gloves?

Minimum requirements for safety gloves in relation to protection from cold are regulated in standard DIN EN 511. The gloves certified under this standard are intended to protect the wearer from convective cold (penetrating cold) and contact cold (direct contact).

How do you read EN 388?

EN388 Testing Procedures

  1. A = Abrasion Resistance. A glove’s abrasion resistance refers to how many times it can withstand abrasive pressure from sandpaper.
  2. B = Circular Blade Cut Resistance (Coupe Test)
  3. C = Tear Resistance.
  4. D = Puncture Resistance.
  5. E = EN ISO Cut Resistance.
  6. F = Impact Protection.

What does EN 388 2016 mean?

EN388 is the European safety standard for protective gloves against mechanical risks, which has been updated a number of times over the years.

Are nitrile gloves EN 374?

What EN374 2?

EN 374-2:2014 specifies the test methods for determining the penetration resistance of gloves that protect against dangerous chemicals and microorganisms. The microorganism pictogram indicates that glove is waterproof, resistant to microorganisms, and an effective barrier against the liquids that harbor microorganisms.

What does CE 2163 mean?

Most of the 20 types of mask tested did not, apparently, pass the filtration capacity tests(1). The face masks in question bear the CE 2163 mark – certification provided by the Turkish company ‘Universal Certification’ to a number of Chinese companies selling the devices in Europe.

Is there an ANSI standard for gloves?

The U.S. standard is ANSI/ISEA 105 (“American National Standard for Hand Protection”), which rates gloves and other cut protective clothing on a consistent numeric rating scheme for mechanical, thermal, chemical, dexterity, and other performance criteria.

Is ASTM D6319 the same as EN455?

Though ASTM D6319, ISO 11193, and EN 455-2 are very similar, EN455-2 is the most popular standard for testing the physical properties of medical gloves because of its specimen preparation requirements.
