Testing of protective gloves – Changes on EN ISO 21420:2020
The requirements and test methods for protective gloves will change. From September 30, 2020, the new EN ISO 21420: 2020 becomes effective, which has been submitted to the European Committee for Standardization. The changes affect areas such as chemical ingredients, the measurements of gloves or electrostatic properties and apply to all gloves, hand guards such as pot holders or arm guards.
