Ansell Extra 87-955 Chemical-Resistant Gauntlet Gloves

Made from 0.75mm-thick natural rubber latex that has been chlorinated for added resistance, the Ansell Extra 87-955 Chemical-Resistant Gauntlet Gloves provide reliable protection against many salts, detergents, ketones, alcohols, alkalies and fats. These gloves are textured on the outside and flocklined inside, and, as a result, promote exceptional grip and enhanced comfort for manual handling and precision tasks.

Features and Benefits of the Ansell Extra Gauntlets

  • Heavy-weight natural rubber latex gauntlets
  • Chlorinated for better grip and increased chemical resistance
  • Resistant to many ketones, salts, detergents, alcohols, alkalies and fats
  • Cotton flocklining for better comfort and perspiration absorption
  • Lozenge-textured surface for enhanced grip

Rubber Latex Composition

The 87-955 Gauntlet Gloves are made from 100% pure latex with no fillers, are chlorinated and are 50% thicker than standard flocklined gloves. As a result, they provide excellent resistance to many ketones, salts, detergents, alcohols, alkalies and fats.

Textured for Better Grip

The Ansell 87-955 Gauntlets have an embossed lozenge finish that enables good grip in both wet and dry conditions. This texturing increases safety during manual handling and improves control for precision tasks. By enhancing gripping ability, these gloves reduce the amount of force needed to perform tasks, and this helps to minimise hand fatigue.

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.
