EN388 Mechanical Risk
The standard states gloves protective functions against physical harm and mechanical risk, including abrasion, blade cut resistance and puncture resistance.
|Character||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3||Level 4||Level 5|
|Abrasion Resistance (No. of Cycles)||100||500||2000||8000||–|
|Blade Cut Resistance (index)||1.2||2.5||5||10||20|
|Tear Resistance (N)||10||25||50||75||–|
EN420 General Requirements
The standard indicates detailed requirements:
- Ergonomic requirements.
- User’s Information.
Each pair of gloves needs to be marked with manufacturer’s name, style and CE. If level 3, testing laboratory name must be marked.
It has 5 levels. During testing, tester picks up metal bars of different diameters to judge dexterity level.
All gloves must be tested PH value, and it should be within range between 3.5 and 9.5.
|Size||Hand Size (mm)||Minimum Length of glove (mm)|
EN374 Risks of Chemicals Penetration
The standard states general requirements, test methods, levels and marks for gloves function of resistance to chemicals penetration.
EN407 Functions of Fire-Proof and Heat Resistant
The standard states general requirements of gloves functions of heat/flame resistance, test methods, levels and properties marks of fire-proof and heat resistant (flame, contact heat, transitivity heat, radiation heat, metallic sparks and smelting metal).
EN511 Function of Low Temperature Resistant
The standard states gloves resistant characters of cold conduction and convection and test methods. Cold temperature is 50 degrees below zero.
