Certifications and Safety Standards for Polyco Optima Chemical Gloves

EN 374

  • EN 374: KLMNPST

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. 

EN 374-1 is a European regulation governing the sale of chemical resistant garments. It uses a series of tests to award a glove a rating based on the penetration, degradation and permeation resistance of the garment.

Symbol Chemical Breakthrough Time in Mins
K Sodium Hydroxide  (40%)  > 480 mins
L Sulphuric Acid (96%) > 30 mins
M Nitric Acid (65%) > 240 mins
N Acetic Acid (99%) > 30 mins
P Hydrogen Peroxide (30%) > 480 mins
S Hydrofluoric Acid (40%) > 480 mins
T Formaldehyde (37%) > 480 mins

EN 388

  • EN 388: 1010X

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

Applications for the Polyco Optima Rubber Chemical Resistant Gloves

Medium-Weight Design

Thanks to their medium-weight design, Polyco Optima Gloves don't have to compromise on their comfort or their ability to protect the hand against water and chemical exposure.

Anatomically Shaped to Enhance User Comfort

The way in which fabric contours and shapes around your fingertips effects the amount of dexterity, accuracy and precision you get when wearing a pair of gloves. Polyco Optima Gloves use a streamlined and refined fabric construction that removes unnecessary fabric at the fingertips, leaving the user the ability to handle, pick up and hold onto small and tricky objects easily without the need to remove their gloves.

Enhanced Grip Strength

Slip Resistant Pattern Promotes Grip Strength

On top of this streamlined design, Polyco use a slip-resistant pattern on the inside of the Optima to reduce slippage and drops when washing up. This also enhances the level of accuracy that laboratory based professionals require when handling intricate tools and chemicals during the day. 

Soft Cotton Flock Lining

A pair of gloves are only as good as the period of time they allow you to wear them for. Manufactured with comfort in mind, Polyco Optima Gloves are designed with a cotton flock interior lining that is soft and comfortable, allowing you to wear them for as long as you need them without risking itching, irritation and damage to the skin.

Five Colour Design

Whether you have a favourite or one that makes practical sense professionally, Polyco Optima Safety Gloves are available in five different colours to suit the needs and requirements of all users. These are:

  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Pink

Extended Wrist Cuff

There nothing worse than that soggy, damp and wrinkled feeling that water inside a pair of gloves causes. Optima Gloves extend an incredible 30cm up the wrist and forearm to prevent splashes entering the glove, leaving your hands feeling fresh once they're removed.

Hygienic Elimination of Bacteria and Harmful Particles

Unlike other, cheaper rubber gloves, Optima Flock Lined Gloves are designed to bolster the hand and wrist against exposure to harmful chemicals and detergents. Optima Gloves are manufactured using fungicidal and bacteriostatic agents that work tirelessly eliminating harmful bacteria and molecules that can stick to the surface of your gloves and skin.
