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.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 To describe the requirements for packaged 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. Minimum attenuation values will be defined.
1.2 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.
