The materials used in gloves shall not release any harmful substances such as toxic, carcinogenic, induction of genetic mutation, sensitization, reproductive toxicity, corrosiveness, or irritation during normal use. The harmlessness of glove materials shall be determined through the tests specified in 5.2.2~5.2.6.
NOTE: The classification and definition of hazardous substances can be obtained from the information provided by the References.
5.2.2 pH value
All gloves shall have a pH greater than 3.5 and less than 9.5.
Gloves made of leather and textile materials shall be tested in accordance with the requirements of 4.1.1 in GB/T 12624-2020.
