    ASTM D4679

    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for gloves made of rubber-like latex, whether made of natural or synthetic materials, unsupported with or without a flock lining, intended for household, beautician, or general use. This specification serves as a guide to permit obtaining gloves of consistent performance, and does not address the safe and proper use of gloves. Sampled specimens shall be tested and conform accordingly to dimensions (width, length, and finger and palm thickness) in accordance to size, and physical requirements (tensile strength and ultimate elongation) before and after accelerated aging. Gloves shall have surfaces that may be smooth or textured, with or without a pattern on the finger surface, and may have a rolled, natural edge or cut cuff. In any case, the gloves shall either be ambidextrous, or in pairs (right and left hand) and matched in design.
