Protection Ratings and Standards for Polyco Chemprotec Mediumweight Safety Gloves
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.
|Chemical ||EN 374 Performance Level |
|A - Methanol ||> 30 minutes |
|K - Sodium Hydroxide 40% ||> 480 minutes |
|L - Sulphuric Acid 96% ||>120 minutes |
|M - Nitric Acid 65% ||> 480 minutes |
|N - Acetic Acid 99% ||> 60 minutes |
|O - Ammonium Hydroxide 25% ||> 480 minutes |
|P - Hydrogen Peroxide 30% ||> 480 minutes |
|T - Formaldehyde ||> 480 minutes |
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 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||N/A |
EN 407 is a European safety regulation governing the sale of gloves and garments that are resistant to any number of fire, heat and molten related hazards. Please view the table below to find out more:
|Standard ||Resistance Rating |
|Burning Resistance ||N/A |
|Contact Heat Resistance ||Level 2 (250°C) |
|Convective Heat Resistance ||N/A |
|Radiant Heat Resistance ||N/A |
|Resistance to Small Molten Splashes ||N/A |
|Resistance to Large Molten Splashes ||N/A |

Suitable Applications and Environments for Polyco Medium Weight Chemical Resistance Gloves
Please view the list below for a few example professions and environments that suit Polyco Chemical Safety Gloves best:
Level 2 Contact HEat Resistance
Chemprotec Chemical Safety Gloves come complete with a level 2 EN 407 safety rating that indicates they are safe for handling heated material with a temperature not exceeding 250°C for up to fifteen seconds. This facilitates the safe handling, transfer and removal of things like autoclave material, test tubes, machine parts and heated chemical containers.
Resistance Against Eight Different Chemicals
No matter what your application, if you're handling chemicals, solvents or detergents, you need to know that your hands are protected. Getting this wrong is the difference between protection and serious corrosive injury.
Polyco Chemprotec Safety Gloves are resistant to eight different commonly encountered chemicals, including methanol, nitric acid, hydrogen peroxide and sulphuric acid. Whether you're a lab technician or a cleaner, Polyco Chemprotec Gloves are designed to keep chemical splashes off of and away from skin.
Two Cuff Length OPtions
Polyco Chemprotec Gloves are available in two different cuff length option variations, which are 44cm and 60cm. For a visual representation of how long the 60cm size are, please view the image below:
Incredible Level 4 Abrasion Resistance Rating
Abrasion resistance indicates how hardwearing and durable a safety glove is. Under EN 388, the maximum level 4 abrasion resistance rating demonstrates that Polyco Chemical Resistance Gloves can withstand a huge amount of contact and traffic before breaking down and showing signs of wear. Abrasion resistance is the difference between a safety glove cracking or splitting and it standing up to routine exposure and wear and tear.
Beaded Cuff Prevents Splashing
A beaded cuff provided additional strength at the wrist, makes for easier donning and doffing and prevents liquid chemical roll back. This is a vital safety feature for laboratory staff who are constantly handling chemicals.
An unlined safety glove allows for the use of an under glove or liner if required. It also removes issues surrounding putting gloves on and taking them off that can be caused by linings that snag against sweaty hands.
