Protection Ratings and Chemical Safety Standards
EN 374 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 ||Breakthrough Time |
|(K) Sodium Hydroxide 40% ||>480 minutes |
|(L) Sulphuric Acid 96% ||>240 minutes |
|(M) Nitric Acid 65% ||>60 minutes |
|(P) Hydrogen Peroxide 30% ||>480 minutes |
|(T) Formaldehyde 37% ||>30 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 2 |
|Cut Resistance ||Level 0 |
|Tear Resistance ||Level 0 |
|Puncture Resistance ||Level 0 |
|ISO Cut Resistance ||N/A |

Incredible Comprehensive Chemical Resistance
If you work with chemicals and solvents, you'll know that you don't always know exactly what is in every spray, bottle or solution you use. Polyco Pura Chemical Gloves are designed to protect against a range of commonly encountered chemicals that feature in most cleaning agents and sprays.
Extended Cuff Enhances Splash Protection
Splash protection is vital when cleaning or washing up. If liquid gets onto your arm, it can easily roll down into your hands and cause prolonged irritation without you knowing it.
Polyco Pura Gloves have are 31cm in length, shielding and guarding not only your hands, but your wrists and forearms too.
Safe for Food Contact
Perfect for dual use in school and work canteens, Polyco Pura Chemical Safe Gloves provide exposure protection against chemicals and foodstuffs. They are accredited under safety standard EN 1186 as sanitary in contact with food and will not cause contamination or spoiling when doing so.
Flock Lining Absorbs Perspiration
Working long hours in hot and sweat conditions can cause intense perspiration which leads to that nasty blotchy, irritated redness you so often get when taking off your gloves. Polyco Pura Gloves use a soft and plush flock lining to absorb sweat and prevent slick rubbing that causes irritation, eczema and other dermatological conditions.
Slip Resistant Pattern on Palm Enhances Grip
Picking up loose knives, forks, spoons, utensils and slick plates in a deep sink can be difficult without a decent bit of texture on your gloves. Thanks to slightly stippled fingertips, Polyco Pura Gloves make light work of slick surfaces, allowing you to seamlessly grip and hold onto wet, soapy and slick material.
Accelerator and Latex Protein Free
A common issue with latex and rubber gloves is that they cause the release of proteins and accelerators that aggravate sensitive skin. Polyco Pura Gloves are made with PVC, which is inherently waterproof and grippy.
Anatomically Shaped to Reduce Fatigue
We know that any type of manual work involving your hands can cause the muscles in your fingers, hands and wrist to tire. Designed in the image of the traditional rubber glove, Polyco Pura Gloves are anatomically designed with soft fabric and a lightly flexible wrist to reduce fatigue, stress and strain when working.
Available in Three Different Colours
For the style conscious workers among you, Polyco have designed their Pura Gloves in three different colours, allowing you to choose between red, blue and green.
