Standards info: Gloves against heat and flames according to EN 407
EN 407 specifies the requirements for a heat-protective glove. There are six categories in which a heat protection glove must show what it can do.
- Fire resistance: Here the glove is exposed to a gas flame and it is measured how long the material burns or glows after the flame is removed.
- Protection against contact heat: A glove must withstand direct contact with heat (100°C to 500°C) for at least 15 seconds. The temperature at which the inside of the glove does not heat up more than 10°C is measured.
- Protection against convection heat: This is about slowly penetrating heat. The amount of time a glove can delay heat transfer is measured.
- Protection against radiant heat: The time a glove can delay the penetration of radiant heat is measured.
- Resistance to small splashes of molten metal: This counts how many molten metal drops are needed to heat the glove material to a certain temperature.
- Resistance to molten metal: How many grams of molten iron the test glove can withstand until it is perforated or ignites is measured.
