Recommendations for use
Do not use gloves older than one year from the date of manufacture without prior testing.
Before and after each use, conduct a visual control by inflating the glove with air to check for leaks.
Gloves should be stored at ambient temperatures (10º-21ºC) in their original bag, away from direct sunlight, ozone or heat.
Gloves are tested to ATPV (Arc Thermal Performance Values) in accordance with ASTM standards. This is the International Draft Standard Test Method, to determine the arc rating of the gloves. A class 4 glove needs to achieve an ATPV value of 55 Cal/cm³.
