For the Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items Methods for the Resistance Testing of Gloves and Finger Cots
|Publication Date:||5 June 2019|
This document applies to all gloves and finger cots with a resistance measured with personnel as a system of less than 1.0 x 1011 ohms.
This document provides test procedures for measuring the electrical resistance of gloves or finger cots. The document also provides methods for performing intrinsic resistance measurements that include surface, volume, and two-point resistance using ANSI/ESD STM11.11, STM11.12, and STM11.13, respectively. "In-use" resistance measurement of the glove/finger cot and personnel together as a system is defined using a constant area and force electrode (CAFE).
This document provides test procedures for measuring the intrinsic electrical resistance of gloves and finger cots, as well as their electrical resistance, together with personnel as a system. The system test provides data that are relevant to the user's specific environment and application.
