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

Expansive Chemical Resistance Ratings

Whether you're a cleaner or a scientists, you want guarantees about protection. Polyco A802 Gauntlets are resistant to eight different chemicals and solvents that are commonly found in cleaning products and detergents, including methanol, sulphuric acid, nitric acid and hydroflouric acid.

Lengthy 44cm Extended Cuff

Unfortunately when it comes to incredibly hazardous and corrosive liquids, protecting your hands from harm is not enough. Polyco A802 extend their incredible chemical protection to the wrist and forearm by using a length 44cm wrist cuff.

This cuff shields against accidental splashing and inadvertent contact with harmful chemicals and substances. Take no chances by maximising your coverage.

Robust and Durable Natural Rubber Foundation

Natural rubber is an incredible coating as it provides great untreated flexibility and strength. Ideal for use in chemical resistant gloves, natural rubber is inherently resistant to water and other chemicals, meaning it doesn't require much treatment to provide ample protection for cleaners and laboratory based professionals.

Natural rubber guards against abrasions, cuts and wear and tear, preserving the shelf life of your gloves day after day and use after use. 

Strong Oil Resistance

In automotive manufacturing, oil and grease gets everywhere. Reaching into machines and removing parts from under car bonnets means exposure to a range of nasty substances and substrates.

Polyco A802 Heavyweight Gauntlets are made with natural rubber, which is inherently resistant to these nasty compounds. Simply wipe or wash the exterior fabric clean using warm, soapy water following exposure.

Maintain Natural Touch and Dexterity

Unlike other heavier gloves, A802 Gloves aren't bulky, meaning there's isn't a great deal of fabric between the object and the hand. Thanks to their incredible 1.1mm thickness, Polyco A802 Gauntlets allow the user to maintain a great amount of touch and precision in their fingertips.
