Abstract This standard (effective 1 Jan. 1988) applies to gloves of natural and synthetic rubber, gums and polyvinyl chloride, with or without textile reinforcement, and gives methods for determining their permeability, cleanability and stability with respect to liquid pesticides with maximum saturated vapour concentrations greater than 10mg/m3 at 25░C. Permeability is determined by exposing one side of a sample of glove material to pesticide and measuring the amount of pesticide absorbed by a piece of filter paper in contact with the opposite side of the sample. Cleanability is determined by measuring the amount of pesticide adhering to a sample of material before and after washing with an alkaline soap solution. Resistance to pesticides is determined by measuring the puncture strength (unreinforced material) or ultrasound attenuation (reinforced material) of a sample before and after exposure to pesticide.
