    How To Use

    • Instructions for storage: Store in a cool, dry place; away from frost and light in their original packaging.
    • Warning: Gloves not to be worn when there is a risk of entanglement by moving parts of machines.

    Tests Conducted

    • Abrasion as per EN 388 is 2: Resistance to abrasion based on the number of cycles required to abrade through the sample glove (abrasion by sandpaper under a stipulated pressure). The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4 depending on how many revolutions are required to make a hole in the material. The higher the number, the better the gloves.
    • Cut as per EN 388 is 1: Blade cut resistance based on the number of cycles required to cut through the sample at a constant speed. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 5.
    • Tear as per EN 388 is 2: Tear resistances based on the amount of force required to tear the sample. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.
    • Puncture as per EN 388 is 2: Puncture resistances based on the amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standardly sized point. The protection factor is then indicated on a scale from 1 to 4.
    • TDM blade cut resistant as per EN 388 is X (X means not tested): The glove sample is placed on a conductive strip and loaded onto the TDM-100. When the metal blade touches the metal strip, the test is terminated. A straight blade is loaded into the machine. Weight is added to serve as a force. The blade moves across the fabric. The blade is replaced with a new one to ensure accuracy. The sample is cut five times, each with three different loads. The distance travelled to cause cut through at various forces is recorded. The data is used to determine the load required to cut through the sample.
    • Resistance to flammability: The glove’s material is stretched and lit with a gas flame. The flame is held against the material for 15 seconds. After the gas flame is distinguished, the length of time is measured for how long the material either glows or burns.
    • Resistance to contact heat: The glove’s material is exposed to temperatures between +100°C and +500°C. The length of time is then measured for how long it takes the material on the inside of the glove to increase by 10°C from the starting temperature (approx. 25°C). 15 seconds is the minimum accepted length of time for approval. For example: to be marked with class 2, the glove’s inside material must manage 250°C heat for 15 seconds before the material exceeds 35°C.
    • Resistance to convective heat: The amount of time is measured for the heat from a gas flame (80Kw/kvm) to increase the temperature of the glove’s inside material by 24°C.
    • Resistance to radiant heat: The glove’s material is stretched in front of a heat source with an effect of 20-40 kw/kvm. The average time is measured for heat penetration of 2.5 kw/kvm.
    • Resistance to small splashes of molten metal: The test is based on the total number of drops of molten metal required to increase the temperature by 40°C between the inside of the glove and the skin.
    • Resistance to large splashes of molten metal: glove material. Molten metal is then poured over the glove material. The total number of grams is measured by how much molten metal is required to damage the simulated skin.

    Remarks

    • This glove does not contain a substance known as being carcinogenic, neither toxic nor likely to cause allergies to sensitive people.
    • It is generally recommended that leather gloves be dry cleaned. Soap and water remove the natural oils present in the leather, causing them to stiffen and become brittle.
    • The leather used in the manufacture of this glove has chrome and PH within permissible limits. Internal test reports are available on demand for PH, CR VI, EN 388 and EN 407.
