EXPLANATION OF GLOVE STANDARDS

PROTECTION AGAINST MECHANICAL HAZARDS AS/NZS2161.3:1998 (EN388)
The EN388 standard applies to all types of protective gloves with respect to mechanical aggression from abrasion, cutting, tearing and puncture. These ratings are calculated from laboratory test results and do not replace the actual testing of the product in real conditions in the field. The results also enable you to compare the performance between various products.

Level X: The test is not applicable, or the glove is not tested
Level 0: Nil performance or result
Level 1: Minimum result

Level 2: Good result
Level 3: Very Good result
Level 4 & over: Excellent result

PROTECTION AGAINST HEAT AND FIRE HAZARDS 2161.5:1998 (EN407)
The EN407 standard specifies the general requirements and the thermal performance of gloves to protect from heat and fire. It applies to gloves which protect hands from fire, contact heat, radiating heat, small spray of molten metal or large spray of melting metal.

Level X: The test is not applicable, or the glove is not tested
Level 0: Nil performance or result
Level 1: Minimum result

Level 2: Good result
Level 3: Very Good result
Level 4 & over: Excellent result

PROTECTION AGAINST COLD AS/NZS 2161.10.3:2005 (EN511)
The EN511 standard defines the requirements and test methods for gloves which protect against convective or conductive cold down to -50*. This cold can be linked to climatic conditions or industrial activity.

Level X: The test is not applicable, or the glove is not tested
Level 0: Nil performance or result
Level 1: Minimum result

Level 2: Good result
Level 3: Very Good result
Level 4 & over: Excellent result

PROTECTION AGAINST CHEMICAL RISK AS/NZ 2161.10.3:2005 (EN374-3)
The EN374-3 standard involves determination of the resistance of the materials making up the gloves. Resistance to permeation is assessed by measuring the time for a chemical to break through glove material. Samples are cut and placed in a permeation cell which enable the chemical to be placed in contact with the outer surface of the glove. Air or water is passed through the cell to collect any chemical that has broken through the inside surface of the glove. It is recommended to only use the test results, which have basically relative values, to compare the materials on the basis of the major categories of passage of time.

Level X: The test is not applicable, or the glove is not tested
Level 0: Nil performance or result
Level 1: Minimum result

Level 2: Good result
Level 3: Very Good result
Level 4 & over: Excellent result
