scope:

1.1 This test method is used for evaluating how gloves affect an individual wearer's ability to grip onto a hard surface object.

1.1.1 This test method establishes procedures for measuring the maximum torque that can be attained by individual's bare hand as compared to the maximum torque that is attained by the same individual wearing a glove. The torque is applied to a vertically-mounted pole attached to a torque meter.

1.2 This test method is suitable for evaluating gloves and other forms of hand protection that require the wearer to maintain a secure hold on objects.

1.3 This test method does not address all effects of wearing gloves on hand functions. Other test methods include those for evaluating the effect of wearing gloves on dexterity, tactility, and other aspects of functional performance.

1.4 It is the responsibility of the test laboratory to obtain the necessary and appropriate approval(s) required by their institution for conducting tests using human subjects.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
