    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard is applicable to insulating gloves and mitts made of plastic or elastomer for use without over-gloves for mechanical protection. Unless otherwise stated the use of the term glove includes both gloves and mitts. The gloves are intended to be used for working live or close to live parts at a nominal voltages up to 7 500 V a.c. (or 11 250 V d.c.). For other voltages detailed information is not yet available. Three classes of gloves, differing in electrical characteristics, are provided and are designated class 00, class 0, class 1. For other classes such as class 2, class 3 and class 4 additional data will be necessary. Five categories of gloves, differing in properties related to acid, oil, ozone and a combination of all are provided and designated, Categories A, H, Z and P respectively and also extreme low temperature designated Category C
