scope:

This document applies to all gloves and finger cots used as part of a user defined Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Control Program.

This document is intended to provide test procedures for measuring the electrical resistance of gloves or finger cots. Intrinsic resistance measurements include surface, volume, and point-to-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 force electrode (CAFE).

The resistance of the glove or finger cot may be much lower during use than its intrinsic resistance due to the interior of the glove/finger cot becoming hydrated once it is placed on the hand/finger of the operator.

Purpose

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.
