    Abstract

    This specification describes the requirements for packaged, thin film medical protective gloves with radiation attenuating properties intended to protect the operator or other persons from unnecessary exposure to radiation during radiological procedures by providing an attenuating barrier to radiation. It specifies the minimum attenuation values and physical property requirements for these radiation-attenuating gloves, which must be compounded from natural rubber latex, rubber cement or synthetic polymers. This specification also covers labeling requirements.
