  • Recommended Storage Practices
    Products must be stored unopened at room temperature and protected from heat, humidity, sunlight, ozone, pests, and sharp objects. It is recommended that products be subject to a “First In, First Out” stock rotation. Products with or without an expiry date do not release the customer from ensuring product viability upon receipt and do not warrant the fitness of a product for any particular use.
     
  • Inspection Frequency & Details
    Before usage, inspect the gloves for any defects or imperfections. It is recommended to check that the gloves are suitable for the intended use because the conditions at the workplace may differ from the type test depending on temperature, abrasion, and degradation. When used, protective gloves may provide less resistance due to changes in physical properties. It’s recommended that each company establish its own criteria for regular, routine inspection and subsequent repair or retirement of protective clothing. Visual inspection for worn areas, mechanical damage, improper alterations, improper fit, or contamination with flammable substances may be cause for removal from service, as determined by the end user.
     
  • Donning & Doffing Procedures
    Gloves can be properly donned by pulling them snugly and fully over the hand; interfaces at the wrist should be completely covered. Gloves should not be worn in combination with other gloves or liners, as this may impact FR rating. Gloves can be doffed by grasping the fingertips of the gloves and pulling them away from the hand until the glove has been completely removed.
