STANDARD EN388

Providing protection for mechanical risks.

This standard applies to all kinds of protective gloves in respect of physical and mechanical aggressions caused by abrasion, blade cut, tearing and puncture.

2 = Abrasion
1 = Blade Cut
2 = Tear
1 = Puncture
Protection against mechanical risks is expressed by a pictogram followed by four numbers each representing test performance against a specific risk. The performance level is from 1-5, where 4 or 5 is the best result.

The level of performance is based on the number of cycles/force required to penetrate the sample.

a. Resistance to abrasion: based on the number of cycles required to abrade through the sample glove.

b. Blade cut resistance: based on the number of cycles required to cut through the sample at a constant speed.

c. Tear resistance: based on the amount of force required to tear the sample.

d. Puncture resistance: based on the amount of force required to pierce the sample with a standard sized point.
