|Publication Date:||1 October 2005|
|ICS Code (Hospital equipment):||11.140|
This specification covers certain requirements for natural rubber (Latex), synthetic rubber (Polychloroprene and Nitrile), and vinyl (PVC) disposable gloves for use in conducting single-use embalming procedures.
This specification covers natural rubber (Latex), synthetic rubber (Polychloroprene and Nitrile), and Vinyl (PVC) disposable gloves that fit either hand, paired gloves, gloves by size, and gloves packed in bulk.
An assessment to measure the chemical resistance performance of the glove can be made based on the ultimate permeation (breakthrough) of embalming chemicals through the glove material over a specified period of time.
This specification is similar to the following specifications: D3578, D4679, D5250, D6319, and D6977.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
