Organization: ISEA
Publication Date: 1 January 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 26
scope:

This standard addresses the classification and testing of hand protection for specific performance properties related to chemical and industrial applications. Hand protection includes gloves, mittens, partial gloves, or other items covering the hand or a portion of the hand that are intended to provide protection against or resistance to a specific hazard.

This standard provides performance ranges for many different properties based on standardized test methods. Descriptions of the test methods used in this standard are provided in Appendix C. Different levels of performance are specified for each property with zero (0) representing the minimal protection or none at all.

The standard does not address protection from electric shock, ionizing or non-ionizing radiation, every type of thermal exposure and harmful temperature extreme, and every type of exposure to chemicals, biological agents, or other hazardous substances. This standard does not address protection for welding, emergency response applications or fire fighter applications.

Recommended guidelines for hand protection selection are provided in Appendix D. Appendix E provides information on other properties not covered in this standard.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to provide manufacturers with a mechanism to classify their products for specified areas of glove performance. The information from this testing and classification can be used to help users to select appropriate hand protection.

DISCLAIMER: Manufacturers of hand protection items determine which tests apply to their products in order to represent a product's performance to individual test classifications of this standard.

Representations by manufacturers regarding a product's compliance with a particular test criterion do not mean, nor should it be implied, that the product meets any other test selection criteria unless specifically stated.
