What Chemicals Do the MaxiDry Gloves Protect Against?
The MaxiDry Gauntlet Gloves offer protection against a range of chemicals. To confirm their resistance, they have been tested to EN 374 standards and achieve an EN 374 score of JKLMNO. They also have an EN 374-5 rating meaning they can protect against micro-organism contamination. The chemicals they are resistant against are outlined in the table below:
|Chemical ||Level of Resistance |
|n-Heptane ||Level 6 (480 mins) |
|Sodium Hydroxide (40%) ||Level 6 (480 mins) |
|Sulphuric Acid (96%) ||Level 4 (120 mins) |
What Does this Mean?
You can view a full guide to this standard by clicking the "what is EN 374" tab at the top of the page. Essentially, the level 6 achieved by n-Heptane and sodium hydroxide means the gloves will protect the hands for at least eight hours, while the level 4 for sulphuric acid means they offer about two hours of protection.
What Else Will the MaxiDry Gloves Protect Against?
The MaxiDry Gloves are composed of a resilient nylon liner and a full nitrile coating for maximum resistance against oils, liquids and grease on top of their chemical resistance. Finally, they also meet EN 388 standards for resistance against mechanical risks, including abrasions and tears. Their scores for this standard are shown in the table below:
|Hazard ||Level of Resistance |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Blade Cut ||Level A |
What Does this Mean?
