ANSI/ISEA 105-2016

ANSI/ ISEA 105-2016 – AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARD FOR HAND PROTECTION

This standard addresses the classification and testing of hand protection for specific performance properties related to chemical and industrial applications. Hand protection includes gloves, mittens, partial gloves, or other items covering the hand or a portion of the hand that are intended to provide protection against or resistance to a specific hazard. This standard provides performance ranges for related to mechanical protection (cut-resistance, puncture resistance and abrasion resistance), chemical protection (permeation resistance, degradation) and other performance characteristics such as ignition resistance and vibration reductions based on standardized test methods.

Hand protection classifications are subdivided into three main groups:

  1. Mechanical Protection (cut, abrasion, puncture)
  2. Chemical Protection
  3. Other (heat, flame, vibration protection, dexterity, impact protection = ANSI/ISEA 138:2019)

 

1 – Mechanical protection
Levels of performance:

Cut resistance:                                                levels A1 – A9

Puncture resistance:                                      levels 1 – 5 (Hypodermic Needle puncture)

Abrasion resistance:                                       levels 1 – 6

1/ A1 is the lowest level; 5, 6 and A9 are the highest levels

2 – Chemical Protection

Standard Breakthrough time:                       levels 1 – 6

1 is the lowest level; 6 is the highest level

3 – Others
Flame and heat resistance
Levels of performance

Flame resistance                                            levels 1 – 4

Heat degradation resistance                         levels 1 – 4

Conductive heat resistance                           levels 1 – 5

1 is the lowest level; 4 and 5 are the highest levels

Vibration Reduction

Criteria: TRM <1.0 and TRH < 0.6                  levels pass/ fail

Dexterity

Levels of performance1 – 5

1 is the lowest level; 5 is the highest level

Impact Resistance (see ANSI/ISEA 138:2019)

Only concerned the knuckle area                 levels pass/ fail
