Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by
analogy with similar materials.
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined
according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).
