To meet the diversity of hazardous situations that exist, Mapa Professional propose a wide range of protective gloves designed using polymers, which, due to their intrinsic nature, will behave differently with respect to the same chemical product.
Did you know ?
To characterise the performance of the elastomers and plastics used to manufacture safety gloves, tests are carried out to determine the behaviour of the materials when confronted with the various families of chemical products. The tests measure:
- The permeation time for a given chemical product, i.e. the time taken for the chemical to penetrate the glove at a molecular level. In some cases, there is no visible deterioration of the glove.
- The degradation index of the glove in contact with a given chemical product, i.e. the degree of deterioration of the glove, shown by an alteration of its physical properties (e.g. softening, hardening, etc.).
Mapa Professional takes these different parameters into account to determine the relative performance of the different families of gloves, and hence helps you to make the best possible choice.
