Protection Ratings for Polyco Poglygen Chemically Resistant Safety Gloves
- EN 374: A, K, L, M, P, S, T
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 |
|(A) Methanol ||>30 minutes |
|(K) Sodium Hydroxide 40% ||>480 minutes |
|(L) Sulphuric Acid 96% ||>60 minutes |
|(M) Nitric Acid 65% ||>60 minutes |
|(P) Hydrogen Peroxide 30% ||>480 minutes |
|(S) Hydrofluoric Acid 40% ||>240 minutes |
|(T) Formaldehyde 37% ||>480 mintues |
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.
|Standard ||Resistance Rating |
|Abrasion Resistance ||Level 4 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 1 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 2 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 1 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||N/A |

Suitable Applications and Environments for Polyco Polygen Safety Gloves
Please view the list below to see a range of suitable workplaces and environments for Polygen Chemical Safety Gloves:
EN 374 Resistance to Seven Different Chemicals
Polyco Polygen Chemical Safety Gloves are capable of resisting corrosion and burning when coming into contact with an incredible seven different commonly encountered chemicals and solvents. Whether you're manufacturing sulphuric acid or you're bottling methanol, know that your safety gloves are there to guard your hands against serious injury and damage.
Safe Handling In a Laboratory Setting
When you're handling chemicals, you need to know that your grip, stability and precision aren't compromised. Designed to enhance all three, Polyco Polygen Chemical Handling Gloves allow the user to seamlessly pick up, transfer and interact with intricate and small implements, tools and pieces of equipment without worrying about drops and accidents.
What Are the Benefits of a PVC Coating?
PVC is naturally entirely waterproof as it 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.
Cool and Comfortable Cotton Liner
Sweat, irritation and blotching can cause serious damage to your hands and skin. Whatever your profession, your gloves are only as good as the length of time they can be worn for.
Polyco Polygen Safety Gloves use a refined and comfortable interlocked and knitted liner to absorb perspiration and keep the hands cool throughout the working day. This helps eliminate the risk of dermatitis, eczema and other nasty conditions developing whilst you're working.
Maximum Level 4 EN 388 Abrasion Resistance Rating
Under EN 388, the maximum abrasion resistance rating is level 4, which demonstrates a glove can take some serious wear and tear before showing signs of breaking down. Abrasion resistance is vital for a glove that encounters a great deal of exposure and chemical contact during the day.
