Certifications and Standards
REGULATION (EU) 2016/425
EN420:2003+A1:2009 General requirements
|5||Dexterity (from 1 to 5)|
The reference standard cannot be used alone but only in combination with another standard containing protection performance 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 Protective gloves against mechanical Risks (Levels obtained on the palm)
|3||Resistance to abrasion (from 1 to 4)|
|1||Resistance to cutting (from 1 to 5)|
|2||Resistance to tear (from 1 to 4)|
|1||Resistance to puncture (1 to 4)|
|X||Resistance to cutting by sharp objects (TDM EN ISO 13997) (from A to F)|
The EN388 standard applies to all types of protective gloves with respect to physical and mechanical aggression from abrasion, cutting from slicing, perforation and tearing. Since the 2016 version of the standard, new optional performances have appeared.
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.
