Currently, the abrasion, cut, tear and puncture resistance of a glove's palm material are communicated with four corresponding numbers below the EN388 symbol.
But as we begin to roll out reusable gloves tested to the EN388:2016 standard, there a few specific changes and additions we'd like to highlight.
What's the difference you'll see? One or two letters may be added and the second of the four numbers may be replaced by an X. It all depends on the new test results.
