    Abstract

    This specification covers the properties necessary for thin film, unlined polymer gloves to be used in food preparation and food handling. It is also intended to serve as a referee and a guide to permit obtaining gloves of a consistent performance. The materials shall include the following: natural (latex) and synthetic (polychloroprene and nitrile) rubbers; vinyl; and low-density, high-density, and cast polyethylene. The gloves shall be sampled using a sampling plan derived from ISO 2859-1 or its equivalent, or other suitable statistical rationale and shall be tested for the following performance requirements: freedom from holes; dimensions and tolerances; physical properties such as tensile strength, yield strength, and ultimate elongation before and after accelerated aging; residual powders for powder-free gloves; powder amount; aqueous extractable protein content; and antigenic protein content.
