Protection Ratings and Standards for Polyco Chemprotec Mediumweight Safety Gloves

EN 374

  • A, K, L, M, N, O, P, T

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
- Methanol > 30 minutes
- Sodium Hydroxide 40% > 480 minutes
- Sulphuric Acid 96% >120 minutes
M - Nitric Acid 65% > 480 minutes
N - Acetic Acid 99% > 60 minutes
O - Ammonium Hydroxide 25% > 480 minutes
- Hydrogen Peroxide 30% > 480 minutes
- Formaldehyde > 480 minutes

EN 388

  • EN 388: 4121X

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

  • EN 407: X2XXXX

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)

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.

Polyco Chemprotec Gloves

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.

Unlined Design

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.

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.
