Terms and definitions
harmful change of one or more of the properties of the protective glove material caused by contact with a chemical
NOTE 1 The term Degradation Designation can include detaching, swelling, decomposition, embrittlement, change of colouring, change of dimensions, appearance, hardening, softening etc.
permeation by the chemical of materials, seams, holes or other imperfections in the protective glove material, on a level which is not molecular
the process whereby the chemical permeates the protective glove material on a molecular level
NOTE 1 the term Permeation includes the following steps:
- absorption of the chemical’s molecules by the material’s surface (outer side) which is in contact with the chemical;
- diffusion of the absorbed molecules in the material;
- desorption of molecules from the material’s opposite (inner) surface
protective glove material
the material, or combination of materials, used in the protective gloves, which is designed to insulate the hands, or hands and arms, from direct contact with hazardous chemicals
AQL – acceptable quality level
Is a static parameter of the level of compliance or assumed quality of the produced goods.
It applies to all types of production which takes place in batches (charges) and is used as a measure of compliance with the specified standards for the given production average.
Chemical gloves form an indispensable protective barrier. For that reason, the workers should not be exposed to the risk of use of defective gloves even if such an event may occur only rarely.
