Each chemical tested is classified in terms of breakthrough time performance level 0 to 6: Based on the amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standard sized point. The test is failed if metal droplets remain stuck to the glove material or if the specimen ignites. The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while the glove outer is placed in contact with a hot probe of defined dimensions and temperature.
The seams of the glove shall not come apart after an ignition time of 15 seconds.
Based on the length of time the stanrard is able to delay the transfer of heat when exposed to a radiant heat source. If you are a SATRA member but not yet registered for online access please register as a new user below. This Lead Equivalence must be marked on each glove. Materials exposed to ionising radiation may be modelled by their behaviour to ozone cracking.

This is a guest blog post from Globus, safety glove manufacturer based in Manchester. Resistance to flammability performance level Based on the length of time the material continues to burn and glow after the source of ignition is removed. View Infographic This standard applies to all kinds of protective gloves in respect of physical and mechanical aggressions caused by abrasion, blade cut, puncture and tearing.
SATRA offers a wide range of unique member services and products designed to enhance technical knowledge and help improve profitability and global sales. Resistance to large splashes of molten metal performance level The weight of molten metal required to cause smoothing or pin-holing across a simulated skin placed directly behind the glove sample. This standard applies to gloves to protect from Ionising Radiation and Radioactive Contamination.
The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while the glove outer is placed in contact with a controlled gas flame. Gloves must also achieve at least Performance level 1 for abrasion and tear. Classification is based on the afterflame and afterglow time and whether or not the glove seams open and the glove material melts or drips. Based on the length of time the material continues to burn and glow after the source of ignition is removed.
If it is classed in category III, the number of the notified body that carried out the tests also appears on the glove.
Based on the temperature range oC at which the user will feel no pain for at least 15 seconds.

This standard applies to any gloves to protect the hands against convective and contact cold down to oC.

To protect from radioactive stzndard, the glove has to be liquid-proof and needs to pass the penetration test defined in EN For gloves used in containment enclosures, the glove shall offer high resistance to permeability of water vapour. These cookies are completely safe and secure and will never contain any sensitive information.
EN Thermal Heat Hazards. Menu Phone Email Search Enquiry. The glove attains the levels of resistivity required by this standard in terms of electrostatic conduction or dissipation. The standard includes six thermal tests: Contact heat resistance performance level Based on the temperature range oC at which the user will feel no pain for at least 15 seconds. By understanding the rating systems and applying these safety glove regulations to the workplace, we can all protect our hands and prevent injury.
You can, of course, opt out of these communications at any time! If you would like to know more about cookie settings, please visit www. It is therefore necessary to measure break-through times, or the time taken for the hazardous liquid to come in contact with the skin.
Contact Heat The thermal insulation of the glove is measured by the rate of temperature rise of a calorimeter on the inside of the glove while the glove outer is placed in contact with a hot probe of defined dimensions and temperature.
