This standard provides additional requirements for protective gloves that are worn in areas where flammable or explosive areas exist or might be present. It specifies a test method and requirements for performance, marking and information for electrostatic dissipative protective gloves, to minimise explosion risks.
TERMS AND DEFINITIONS
Oxygen-enriched flammable atmosphere
Atmosphere in which the oxygen content exceeds 21.5% volume fraction of air.
Electrical resistance through a material in Ohms, as determined by using specified electrodes.
Connect a conducter to the main body of earth, to ensure that it is earth potential
Vertical resistance < 1.0*1Ω
Protective gloves shall be produced without electrically condusive connections (e.g. by metal rivets)
Ecternal thin attachments, such as label or reflective strips shall be permanenetly attached around the edges
Adjustment systems such as hook and loop systems not to be used
