Protection Ratings and Standards for Polyco Polyflex Safety Gloves

EN 388

  • EN 388: 4131X

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.

Abrasion Resistance Level 4
Cut Resistance Level 1
Tear Resistance Level 3
Puncture Resistance Level 1
ISO Cut Resistance N/A

EN 407

Who Are Polyco Polyflex Max PC Safety Gloves Designed for?

Polyco Contact Heat Resistant Safety Gloves are designed for a range of different hazardous applications. Please view the list below for examples:

Maximum Level 4 Abrasion Resistance Rating

When tested for their resistance to abrasions, bumps and wear and tear, Polyco Polyflex MAX PC Safety Gloves achieved the maximum possible rating, indicating that they are seriously durable. Built to last with a robust nitrile coating, these gloves are designed for handling serious amounts of material, product and equipment.

Polyco Polyflex Contact Heat Gloves

Breathable Lightweight Liner

Working hard can work up a sweat. Thanks to a breathable and lightweight liner, Polyco Polyflex MAX Gloves release odour and perspiration easily throughout the day, preventing the build up of nasty smells and the development of dermatological conditions like eczema and dermatitis.

What Can a Contact Heat Resistance Rating Do for Your Hands?

A contact-heat resistance rating is the difference between you seriously scolding, burning or injuring your hand and the safe transfer of heated material. Polyco Polyflex Heat Resistant Gloves are designed to resist up to 100°C of contact heat for an incredible fifteen seconds.

What Tasks Does a Contact Heat Resistance Rating Help With?

  • Handling material with a temperature not exceeding 100°C
  • Laying piping and plumbing application
  • Light blacksmithing work
  • The safe removal of heated automotive parts
  • Transferring heated foundry tools and material
  • Tweaking and adjusting machine parts

Stylish Blue on Black Design

Polyco believe that style shouldn't be excluded when designing and manufacturing workwear and safety gloves. Express yourself and work in style, with Polyco Polyflex Safety Gloves.

Grip Enhancing Palm Coating

After a glove that will not only protect your hands, but enhance your grip strength as well? Polyco Polyflex Gloves use a nitrile coating at the palm and fingertips to absorb moisture that would otherwise compromise your grip strength. This means a harder, tighter and more firm grip when handling material, products, equipment and boxes.

What Are the Benefits of Nitrile As a Coating?

Nitrile is an incredibly flexible coating that provides additional resistance to oil, fuel and chemicals. Nitrile is used as a protective coating in gloves because it matches the pliability of latex with the hazard and injury protection properties of a heavier, woven glove.

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.
