FOOTWEAR PROTECTING AGAINST CHEMICALS – PART 2: REQUIREMENTS FOR FOOTWEAR’S RESISTANCE TO CHEMICALS UNDER LABORATORY CONDITIONS

EN 13832-2: 2006 this standard specifies the requirements for footwear that protects the wearer against specific chemicals. This standard does not apply to footwear with leather outsoles.
Part 2 of EN 13832 affords footwear designers greater flexibility than part 3 by not restricting the choice of material types, save the exclusion of designs with leather outsoles, and by allowing ankle boot styles to be evaluated in testing.

EN 13832-2:2006 details the degradation testing procedure only. Footwear in compliance with this standard resists degradation by at least 2 of the following chemicals:

  • B – acetone
  • D – dichloromethane
  • F – toluene
  • G – diethylamine
  • H – tetrahydrofuranI
  • I – ethyl acetate
  • J – n-heptane
  • K – 30% sodium hydroxide
  • L – 95% sulphuric acid
  • M – 65% nitric acid
  • N – 99% acetic acid
  • O– 25% ammonia solution
  • P – 30% hydrogen peroxide solution
  • Q – isopropanol
  • R – 13% sodium hypochlorite
