Protection Ratings and Regulations
EN 388 is a European regulation governing the sale of gloves used for safety and protection. It determines the gloves' performance when used for protection against mechanical machinery by measuring the fabric's abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance.
The EN 388 cut resistance test uses a single sharp implement to repeatedly pressure a glove in order to determine the amount of force required to cause visible and functional damage.
|Standard ||Resistance Rating |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 3 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||Level B |
EN 374 is the European safety regulation that determines the chemical resistance of garments and gloves. The ratings seen below are determined by exposing the fabric to various amounts of each chemical to assess the level damage done to the fibres.
Suitable Environments and Professions for Use
Please view the list below for a list of professions, environments and applications that best suit Ansell 87-104 Chemical Safety Gloves:
Extend Your Protection
An extended cuff has a number of benefits. Firstly, it keeps the glove in place as there is a greater surface area for the cuff to adhere to. Secondly, more material naturally increases the level of protection the user gets. When dealing with harmful chemicals, it's vital that not only your hands are protected, but your forearms and arms are too.
Natural Latex Foundation Fabric
Ansell manufacture their products using only the most reliably sourced, high-quality material. The latex used as a coating in the Ansell 87-104 is sourced from premium-quality rubber trees, allowing the glove to flex naturally and provide a high level of structural integrity and durability in the face of harmful chemicals and solvents.
