Polyco Ketochem Lightweight Ketone Resistant Gloves

The Polyco Ketochem Lightweight Ketone Resistant Gloves are a lightweight reusable safety glove. Made from a unique formulation, the Ketochem provides exceptional protection against a wide range of aggressive solvents. It offers excellent resistance to ketones, including MEK and Acetone, as well as aromatics such as Toluene.

The Polyco Ketochem Lightweight Ketone Resistant Gloves performance level is equivalent to high performing butyl and fluoroelastomer products, at a more cost effective level. The lightweight unsupported safety glove construction feels like a second skin resulting in greater tactile sensitivity, yet it still manages to offer good abrasion resistance for improved durability.

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

The product code for these gloves is KETO.

Sizing Information On The Polyco Ketochem Lightweight Ketone Resistant Gloves

Wearing the correct sized glove is essential to ensure safety and comfort. If gloves are too small they may be stretched, reducing protection and making them more likely to tear. If gloves are too large they can be pulled off by machinery or even pull the hand into moving machinery. Ill-fitting gloves will also greatly reduce dexterity and cause fatigue. European Standard EN420 sets out general requirements for sizing. 

  Safety Gloves Sizing Information Guide

In order to select the correct size of safety glove, simply measure across your palm at the point indicated in the picture. Then compare your measurement with the chart below to ensure that you select the correct size of glove for your hand.

We would recommend using a tape measure or ruler to get the right measurement. Our measurements are based on centimetres.

Where your measurement falls on the boundary of two sizes, we would recommend selecting the larger of the two sizes for a comfortable fit. However, if you would specifically like your gloves to be a closer fit, perhaps for work that requires fine movements, select the smaller of the two sizes.

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.
