TESTING

HOW STRENGTH OF A GLOVE IS TESTED AT BISON

The protective barrier of vinyl gloves is also indicated by the strength of the material. ASTM strength tests are designed to imitate the strain that gloves are subjected to in actual-use situations. Glove strength is measured according to its ability to stretch, as well as resist puncturing and tearing.

Specifically, ASTM testing covers glove elasticity, strength, resistance to puncturing and the force required to tear the material. Here’s a brief description of the specific tests conducted at Bison’s Factories :

  1. Elongation or elasticity testing signifies how much the glove material will stretch before it breaks. A higher number is better because it indicates superior performance.
  2. The Tensile Strength test refers to how much force is needed to stretch a glove until it breaks. Higher numbers reflect superior performance.
  3. Puncture Resistance testing indicates how pressure the material can stand when impacted by an object.
  4. V-Tear evaluations measure how much force is needed to create a tear.
  5. Trouser Tear assessments determine the amount of pressure that’s required to continue a tear once it has begun.
