A chemical guide indicates the typical penetration time for a number of chemicals that gloves have been tested for, as per EN 374. One should be aware of the following:


  • That the penetration time is calculated from the glove's first contact with a chemical as decomposition of the material continues even though the glove is not being used.

  • That test several chemicals separately does not necessarily say anything about the penetration time for a mixture of the same chemicals.

  • That pressure, temperature and amount can have a significant influence on penetration time.
