Glove Plus Prime Black Powder Free Nitrile Examination Gloves

Medical Grade (EN455), PPE Class III
In addition to the specific chemicals Prime gloves have been tested to as part of their EU PPE Class III certification, an independent test laboratory (SGS UK) confirms that these gloves provide excellent splash resistance compared to other gloves in our range.
The tests carried out in accordance with EN374 Part 3 against a wide variety of common chemicals found in both the scientific and industrial workplace where there is a requirement of chemical splash protection for the glove user.
This superior level of barrier protection extends to the barrier permeation of viruses. Glove Plus Prime Black nitrile gloves have been tested to, and passed, ISO 16044b:2003 “Resistance of Materials used in Protective Clothing to Penetration by Blood-Borne Pathogens” (viral testing).
Does this glove have any other benefits?
Manufactured from nitrile, Prime immediately benefits from 4 times the puncture resistance of latex gloves of a similar thickness and is manufactured to a watertight AQL of 0.65 for ‘pinholes’ which ensures a lower instance of tearing and product failure. Prime is produced with a rolled (beaded) cuff which reinforced the cuff area to prevent tearing when putting the glove on and also allows for a secure fit to garments, helping prevent liquid entering the wrist area of the glove.
