Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for protective gloves for use in manual metal welding, cutting and allied processes. Protective gloves for welders protect the hands and the wrists during the process of welding and related tasks. Protective gloves for welders protect against small splashes of molten metal, short contact exposure to limited flame, convective heat and contact heat and U.V. radiation from the arc. Besides, they protect against mechanical aggressions. According to their performance, protective gloves for welders are classified into two types :;type A : lower dexterity (with higher other performance),;type B : higher dexterity (with lower other performance).
