EN ISO 21420:2020 General requirements
• Conform to harmlessness (pH, chrome VI levels, etc…).
• Conform to the size charts (see chart on below).
• Pass the dexterity test.
• Conform to the labelling, information and identification instructions.
Each protective glove is clearly identified by a standardized label containing the following elements:
– Our brand logo.
– The product reference or the trade name.
– The size.
– An information tag indicating that instructions on the product are available.
– The standardization pictogram(s) with their performance ratings.
EN388:2016+A1:2018 Protective gloves against mechanical Risks (Levels obtained on the palm)
|4||Resistance to abrasion (from 1 to 4)|
|X||Resistance to cutting (from 1 to 5)|
|4||Resistance to tear (from 1 to 4)|
|2||Resistance to puncture (1 to 4)|
|D||Resistance to cutting by sharp objects (TDM EN ISO 13997) (from A to F)|
Impact resistance on the metacarpal area: if this performance is claimed, the “P” mark appears.
Cut by blade, 2 test methods:
EN388 6.2.: For low to middle risks of cutting. A circular blade on which a constant force of 5 N is applied, moves back and forth until the sample is cut. It measures the number of completed cycles and is credited with the corresponding level.
EN ISO 13997: For materials that blunt the blade during the EN388 6.2 test and/ or are particularly resistant, for high risk of cutting. A straight blade makes a single movement of 20 mm with a force of 2N, the test is repeated with a different force as many times as necessary until the sample is cut. A level corresponding to the force required to cut the sample is assigned. This method better represents the usage
situations that present a high risk of cutting.
ANSI-ISEA 105:2016 Hand protection
|A4||Resistance to cutting by sharp objects (from A1 to A9)|
Necessary weight for a straight blade to cut the sample in a single movement.
