EN374-3 Protection Against Chemicals and Micro-Organisms
Whether total immersion or merely splash is involved, any substance which would irritate, inflame or burn the skin is classed as a Chemical Hazard. The micro-organism pictogram can be used where the glove performs to at least level 2 for the permeation test i.e. Greater than 30 minutes. The European Norm covering the performance of Chemical Protective Gloves has been revised and is now identified as BSEN 374.2003. In order that a more informed and relevant glove selection can be made, a list of 12 chemicals, identified by the letters A to L, has been nominated and a manufacturer has to submit gloves to be tested against any 3 of these chemicals before approval is obtained.
Methanol (A) = Level 2 (>30 minutes)
Acetone (B) = Level 2 (>30 minutes)
Sodium Hydroxide, 40% (K) = Level 4 (>120 minutes)
Hydrochloric Acid, 10% = Level 6 (>480 minutes)
