American National Standard for Performance and Classification for Abrasion Resistant Gloves
ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 establishes performance levels, testing and classification for gloves designed to provide abrasion resistance while performing occupational tasks.
Glove Material Sample
A circular glove sample taken from the palm and placed on the machine.
The material specimen is placed on the turntable
of an abrader. As the specimen rotates, two grinding-like wheels
roll on the specimen abrading its surface.
A 500 gram load is used for levels 0 to 3 and a 1000 gram load for
levels 4 to 6.
This test method uses
H-18 abrasion wheels made of vitrified clay
and silicon carbide abrasive particles.
Abrasion resistance testing measures how well the glove resists loss of material from rubbing on rough surfaces.
The greater number of abrasion cycles (revolutions) until failure indicate a greater abrasion resistance.
Abrasion Resistant Gloves
Test results are represented by levels 0 to 6, as depicted on the gloves.
Level 6 is the highest level of protection.
