Degradation tests

Degradation tests of protective gloves when handling hazardous chemicals.

Safeguarding the protection of end users

When working with hazardous chemicals, good protective gloves are essential. We use degradation tests to establish the extent to which the material of the gloves is damaged after prolonged exposure to a chemical substance. The results of this test in accordance with EN-ISO 374-4:2019 give you valuable knowledge about your product, which allows you to safeguard the protection of end users.

Expert testing of your material

Gloves need to provide adequate protection. We use permeation tests to assess whether a chemical substance will permeate the material. The degradation test is a key additional test that we use to map out how the material responds to exposure to a chemical substance for a certain period of time and in a certain concentration. In this way, ProQares can help you to determine the best choice of material for your gloves.
