    ASTM D7198

    Abstract

    This specification covers certain requirements for natural rubber (Latex), synthetic rubber (Polychloroprene and Nitrile), and vinyl (PVC) disposable gloves for use in conducting single-use embalming procedures. This specification covers natural rubber (Latex), synthetic rubber (Polychloroprene and Nitrile), and Vinyl (PVC) disposable gloves that fit either hand, paired gloves, gloves by size, and gloves packed in bulk. An assessment to measure the chemical resistance performance of the glove can be made based on the ultimate permeation (breakthrough) of embalming chemicals through the glove material over a specified period of time. The chemical permeation tests described in this specification are intended to be "Type Tests" for these types of gloves. The material shall conform to the required quality performances, which include freedom from holes, width, length, thickness, physical properties before aging and after accelerated aging, powder amount, and permeation. Latex shall be tested for protein content and antigenic protein content.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers certain requirements for natural rubber (Latex), synthetic rubber (Polychloroprene and Nitrile), and vinyl (PVC) disposable gloves for use in conducting single-use embalming procedures.

    1.2 This specification covers natural rubber (Latex), synthetic rubber (Polychloroprene and Nitrile), and Vinyl (PVC) disposable gloves that fit either hand, paired gloves, gloves by size, and gloves packed in bulk.

    1.3 An assessment to measure the chemical resistance performance of the glove can be made based on the ultimate permeation (breakthrough) of embalming chemicals through the glove material over a specified period of time.

    1.4 This specification is similar to the following specifications: D3578, D4679, D5250, D6319, and D6977.

    1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
