Protection From Cold Standards

This standard applies to any gloves to protect the hands against convective and
contact cold down to -50°C.

The pictogram will be accompanied by a 3-digit code. Resistance to convective
cold — based on the thermal insulation properties of the glove which are obtained
by measuring the transfer of cold via convection (performance level 0-4).

Resistance to contact cold — based on the thermal resistance of the glove material when exposed to contact with a
cold object (performance level 0-4).

Resistance to contact cold — based on the thermal resistance of the glove material when exposed to contact with a cold object (performance level 0-4).

Permeability to water — the last digit next to the pictogram shows if water penetrates the glove after 30 minutes (performance level 0 or 1: 0 = water penetration after 30 minutes, 1 = no water penetration after 30 minutes).
