Protection Ratings and Safety Standards for Polyco PVC Chemical Gauntlets
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 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||N/A |
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.
|Chemical ||Breakthrough Time |
|Methanol ||> 60 minutes |
|Sodium Hydroxide (40%) ||> 480 minutes |
|Sulphuric Acid ||> 240 minutes |

PERSONALISE YOUR CUFF LENGTH
If you're concerned about splashing and coming into inadvertent contact with harmful substances, an extended wrist cuff is a must. Running up the wrist and forearm, Polychem Safety Gauntlets are available with a 35, 40, 45 or 56cm extended cuff which is designed to be chosen based on the specific requirements of your professions.
Cotton Interlock Knitted Liner
A pair of safety gauntlets are completely useless if they aren't comfortable. If you find yourself removing your gloves to itch and scratch your hands repeatedly, you aren't getting your best work done.
Polychem Chemical Safety Gloves are designed and manufactured with a cotton interlock knitted liner which provides a high level of comfort and stops sweat and perspiration chaffing and rubbing against the skin whilst you work.
PVC Coating Benefits
PVC has a number of benefits when used as a glove coating. It is entirely waterproof and forms a thick, shiny layer on the glove that provides great protection against grease, oil and other sticky moistures. This makes PVC the perfect coating for protection against harmful liquids like chemicals and oil.
