EN 455-1 Defines requirements for disposable gloves to check they are free of holes to be safe for medical use FDA 21 Overarching regulations for production, testing, labelling and advertising of food and drugs within the United States. CFR 177.2600 Rubber articles intended for repeated use—lists permitted elastomers, vulcanization materials, accelerators, retarders, activators, antioxidants, plasticizers, fillers, emulsifiers, and other additives, and sets extraction limits for food contact.
EN 374-1 Indicates that the product meets permeation standards for protective gloves, with permeation resistance of (Type A) at least 30 minutes to 6 test chemicals, (Type B) at least 30 minutes to 3 chemicals and (Type C) at least 10 minutes to 1 chemical. Letters under the shield identify the chemicals.
EN 374-4 Measures the glove’s resistance to degradation by chemical exposure—any flaking, swelling, disintegration, embrittlement, hardening, softening, etc—by testing the force required to puncture the glove material after continuous contact with a challenge chemical.
EN 374-5 Tests the glove for safety in risks of contact with microorganisms—bacteria, fungi and viruses. D6978-05 Indicates that the product meets ASTM standards for resistance of medical gloves to permeation by at least 9 chemotherapy drugs. A more stringent and specialised test than the EN374 test.
