Tests are provided for determining cleanliness, physical and chemical integrity, and other relevant properties.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
Gloves and finger cots are used in cleanrooms both to ensure the safety of the workers and to preserve the cleanliness of the process and product. This Recommended Practice provides methods for testing gloves and finger cots in two broad categories: physical attributes and cleanliness. Whenever appropriate, suitable methods already existing in the literature are cited; when necessary, new test methods have been developed.
