Title Methods for assessing the resistance of gloves to chemical substances
Original title Méthodes d'évaluation de la résistance des gants aux produits chimiques [in French]
Bibliographic information 3rd Quarter 1995, No.160, Note No.1998-160-95, p.373-388. Illus. 10 ref.
Abstract This data sheet shows the results of a study on methods for assessing glove resistance to chemical substances. It presents the testing equipment used and the results which were obtained with thirteen models of gloves. The results of the current study compare well with those of another one previously conducted by the INRS in more than 50% of the cases. Appended are details on the automation of the testing equipment, an example of two recordings, the diagrams of the permeation cells used (according to European and international standards) and the results of the tests with common solvents and some glycol ethers.
