Sometimes they can act as sponges, soaking up the liquids and holding them against the skin. Menu Phone Email Search Enquiry. For gloves used in containment enclosures, the glove shall offer high resistance to permeability of water vapour. Resistance to convective cold performance level 0 – 4 b.
EN Heat Protection Gloves
Permeability standardd water 0 or 1 All gloves must achieve at least EN performance level 1 for abrasion and tear. Contact Heat The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside standagd the glove while the glove outer is placed in contact with a hot probe of defined dimensions and temperature.
Protection against cold is expressed by a pictogram followed by a series of 3 performance levels, relating to specific protective qualities. If you are a SATRA member but not yet registered for online access please register as a new user below. Small Molten Metal 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.
If it is classed in category III, the number of the notified body that carried out the tests also appears on the glove. 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. Materials exposed to ionising radiation may be modelled by their behaviour to ozone cracking.
Each chemical tested is classified in terms of breakthrough time performance level 0 to This standard applies to gloves to protect from Ionising Radiation and Radioactive Contamination. When buying industrial gloves, an understanding of the numeric or alphabetical codes and symbols used for specifying protection levels in the standards is recommended.
Resistance to small splashes of molten metal performance level The number of molten metal drops required to heat the glove sample to a given level. If an EN level 3 or higher is obtained, the product shall record at least EN level rn407 in the flammability test. Please complete all required fields above Submit. This code refers to 3 chemicals from a list of 12 standard defined chemicals for which a breakthrough time of at least 30 minutes has been obtained.
A performance level shall only standafd mentioned if a performance level of 3 or 4 is obtained in the flammability test.
EN – Protective gloves against thermal risks (heat and/or fire)
Here are some facts about how burns affect the lives of millions of people around the world:. SATRA standaard a wide range of unique member services and products designed to enhance technical knowledge and help improve profitability and global sales. Resistance to contact cold performance level 0 – 4 c.
Dexterity The higher the rating, the standatd the dexterity. Each chemical tested is classified in terms of breakthrough time performance level 0 to 6: These cookies are completely safe and secure and will never contain any sensitive information.

Based on the temperature range oC at which the user will feel no pain for at least 15 seconds. Permeation The rubber and plastic films in gloves do not always act as barriers to liquids.
Based on the length of time the glove is able to delay the transfer of heat from a flame.
You can, of course, opt out of these communications at any time! By understanding the rating systems and applying these safety glove regulations to the workplace, we can all protect our hands and prevent injury.
Based on the amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standard sized point. Classification is based on the afterflame and afterglow time and whether or not the glove seams open and the glove material melts or drips.
Otherwise, the maximum contact heat level shall be reported as level 2. Safety standards help to keep us all safer at work. Contact heat resistance performance level Based on the temperature range oC at which the user will feel no pain for at least 15 seconds.
