PCP-Carbon Lightweight Anti-Static Handling Gloves

The PCP-Carbon Lightweight Anti-Static Handling Gloves are dexterous gloves that are suitable for a range of tasks, including working with electronics and PC building. Featuring a PU (polyurethane) coating, these gloves are incredibly lightweight and this makes them ideal for tasks that require fine motor control.

Who Can Use the Lightweight Handling Gloves?

The PCP-Carbon Gloves are highly cost-effective, providing you with gloves that can be used for general handling/warehousing as well as specific protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD). Some industries and tasks where the gloves can be used include:

  • PC building
  • Computer component handling
  • Electronics manufacturing
  • General handling
  • Warehousing
  • Precision/fine handling
  • Inspection

Which Size Do I Need?

The PCP-Carbon Gloves are available in four sizes that should suit most users. To find your perfect size, please measure the length of your hand and the circumference of your palm, as outlined below. Once you have these measurements, please match your results to the table below:

Indications of Where to Measure Your Hand

Size Palm Circumference Hand Length Min. Glove Length
Size 7 (Small) 178mm 171mm 230mm
Size 8 (Medium) 203mm 182mm 240mm
Size 9 (Large) 229mm 192mm 250mm
Size 10 (Extra Large) 254mm 204mm 260mm

Are the PCP-Carbon Gloves Tested to Any European Standards?

The PCP-Carbon ESD Gloves conform to the European standards EN 420:2003 and EN 388:2016. For more information about specific protection, please see the table below.

Mechanical Property Resistance Level
Abrasion Level 3
Cut Level 1
Tear Level 3
Puncture Level 1
ISO Cut X (Not Tested)

What Does This Mean?

These gloves have a low level of resistance against cuts and puncture, making them unsuitable for handling sharp items. If you are looking to handle sharp items, please see our Cut Level 5 Gloves for a more suitable range.

While these gloves are not recommended for hazardous environments, they do feature good abrasion and tear resistance. This means that you can rely on the gloves to remain durable, even after prolonged/repeated use.

Are the PCP-Carbon Gloves Comfortable?

Manufactured with a seamless machine-knitted liner, the PCP-Carbon ESD Gloves are breathable and offer superlative comfort. What's more, the gloves have a lightweight design that allows for prolonged use without having to worry about fatigue and also doesn't impede on tasks that require fine motor control.

What Is the Benefit of a PU Coating?

The PCP-Carbon Gloves feature a PU coating, which provides great levels of grip, even when dealing with wet or slippery items. In addition to providing great grip, PU is lightweight and thin, making the gloves as dexterous as possible.

How Are the Gloves Anti-Static?

The Lightweight Anti-Static Handling Gloves feature a carbon filament liner that prevents ESD, making them great for protecting electronic components when handling. In addition, the gloves are low-linting to prevent contamination.

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.
