Protection Ratings and Standards for Ketochem Chemical Safe Gloves

EN 374

  • EN 374: B, C, D, F, I, J

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
(B) Acetone >240 minutes
(C) Acetonitrile >480 minutes
(D) Dichloromethane >240 minutes
(F) Toluene >480 minutes
(I) Ethyl Acetate >480 minutes
(J) n-Heptane >480 minutes

EN 388

  • EN 388: 3001X

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 3
Cut Resistance Level 0
Tear Resistance Level 0
Puncture Resistance Level 1
ISO Cut Resistance N/A

Unique Formulation and Design

Polyco Ketochem 33cm Chemical Safety Gloves are specifically designed to shield against the aggressive and corrosive nature of ketones, solvents and other harmful chemicals. Manufactured with a lightweight yet highly robust and resistant material, they maintain a high-degree of flexibility and dexterity without compromising on safety. 

Chemical Safety Handling Gloves

Targeted Chemical Resistance

Ketones are widely used in the manufacture of paints, textile lacquers, polishes and tanning fluids. With excellent resistance to ketones, including MEK and acetone, Polyco Ketochem Chemical Gloves provide excellent protection for users working in the manufacturing and textile industries.

Economical and Affordable Price Tag

Whether you're outfitting an entire workforce or you're looking for gloves that make personal chemical protection affordable, Polyco Chemical Safety Gloves make it easy to purchase a high level of solvent and ketone protection without breaking the bank.

Extended Gauntlet Maximises Splash Protection

Unfortunately, even when precautions are taken, harmful fluids, solvents and chemicals can unexpectedly splash and bubble over, creating a risk for uncovered areas of your body. Polyco Chemical Safety Gloves feature a lengthy 33cm extended cuff that shields the wrist and forearm against liquid splash.


Unlined for easy donning and doffing, the smooth non-textured material and anatomical shape of Polyco Ketochem Safety Gloves ensures comfort and flexibility by reducing hand fatigue. These properties make the Polyco Ketochem Lightweight Ketone Resistant Gloves the ideal choice in environments where ketones and solvents are present.

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.
