Protection Ratings and Chemical Safety Standards
- EN 374: K, L, M, N, O, P, T
EN 374 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 ||Breakthrough Time |
|(K) Sodium Hydroxide 40% ||>480 minutes |
|(L) Sulphuric Acid 96% ||>240 minutes |
|(M) Nitric Acid 65% ||>60 minutes |
|(N) Acetic Acid 99% ||>30 minutes |
|(O) Ammonium Hydroxide 25% ||>60 minutes |
|(P) Hydrogen Peroxide 30% ||>480 minutes |
|(T) Formaldehyde 37% ||>30 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 |

Incredible Comprehensive Chemical Resistance
Whether you're a scientist or a cleaner, you don't want chemicals coming into contact with your skin. Polyco Chemically Resistant C1 Gauntlets offer incredible protection against seven commonly encountered chemicals that are routinely found in cleaning agents, sprays, compound cleaners and detergents.
They've also got you covered for use with more concentrated chemicals. Polyco C1 Gauntlets are resistant to 99% acetic acid and 96% sulphuric acid for long periods, demonstrating their resistance in the face of potent and concentrated chemicals.
Contact Heat Resistance
Polcyo C1 Gauntlets go a step further, combining an incredible level of chemical resistance with contact heat protection. Suitable for handling material with a temperature not exceeding 250°C, they allow the user to safely transfer and handle material without burning or scolding the skin.
Extended Cuff Enhances Splash Protection
Protecting your hands and fingers when you work with hazardous liquids is not enough. Polyco understand this and include a lengthy 35cm (total length of glove) on their Chemically Resistant C1 Oil Gloves to further shield the wrist and forearm against splashing and accidental contact with harmful material and liquids.
Safe for Food Contact
Perfect for dual use in school and work canteens, Polyco Dual Coated C1 Gloves provide exposure protection to hazardous chemicals and foodstuffs. They are accredited under safety standard EN 1186 as sanitary in contact with food and will not cause contamination or spoiling when doing so.
Dual Layered Nitrile Coating
Polyco C1 Chemical Gauntlets use not one, but two layers of nitrile to enhance grip strength, maintain solid purchase on objects and material and promote durability in the face of scuffs, scratches, scrapes and general wear and tear exposure. Nitrile is an excellent coating for use in contact with liquid, as it works tirelessly to absorb microscopic droplets that can otherwise compromise grip strength and stability.
Micro-Foam Infused Palm Coating
This nitrile palm coating is further infused with micro-foam bubbles that further increase resistance to oil and grease. This maximises stability when handling material in traditionally tricky environments like automotive yards and assembly units.
