Protection Ratings and Standards for Ketochem Chemical Safe 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 ||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 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 |
