Protection Ratings and Standards for Polyco Chemical Resistance Safety Gloves
- A, J, 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 |
|A - Methanol ||> 60 minutes |
|J - n-Heptane ||> 480 minutes |
|K - Sodium Hydroxide 40% ||> 480 minutes |
|L - Sulphuric Acid 96% ||>120 minutes |
|M - Nitric Acid 65% ||> 30 minutes |
|N - Acetic Acid 99% ||> 60 minutes |
|O - Ammonium Hydroxide 25% ||> 480 minutes |
|P - Hydrogen Peroxide 30% ||> 480 minutes |
|T - Formaldehyde ||> 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 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 0 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||N/A |

Suitable Applications and Environments for Polyco Nitri-Tech Laboratory Gloves
Please view the list below for a few example professions and environments that suit Polyco Chemical Safety Gloves best:
Incredible Chemical Resistance
Whether you're a scientist or cleaner, you're going to come into contact with chemicals, solvents and other incredibly harmful substances. Polyco Nitri-Tech Safety Gloves are resistant to an incredible nine different chemicals. They also provide protection against a range of corrosive solvents, grease, oil and detergents.
Incredible Level 4 Abrasion Resistance Rating
Under EN 388, the maximum level 4 abrasion resistance rating indicates that a glove can withstand a huge amount of traffic and contact before showing signs of wear. This is ideal as it enhances the shelf life of your gloves and prevents wear and tear breaking down the fibres.
Grip Enhancing Palm
Polyco Nitri-Tech Safety Gloves use a non-slip diamond pattern at the palm to increase the accuracy, dexterity and precision of the user. Whether you're cleaning, testing chemicals or preparing food in a factory, Polyco Nitri-Tech Gloves allow you to pick up intricate and trick implements, parts and objects with ease.
Extended Splash Protection Cuff
When working with chemicals, protecting just your hands is not enough. Nitri-Tech Gloves use an extended wrist cuff which runs an incredible 33cm up your wrist and forearm to prevent chemical splashes making contact with the skin.
Food Contact Safe
Not all chemical safe gloves are certified as sanitary and safe for food preparation purposes. These multifunctional Nitri-Tech Gloves are. Designed to be highly multifunctional, they are 100% safe for use in food preparation, manufacturing, handling and on industrial production lines.
