Protection Against Viral Penetration – Sempermed Follows a Stricter Standard

The new norm EN ISO 374-5:2016 defines requirements and test methods for protective gloves with the aim of protecting glove users against harmful microorganisms.

This new norm relates to the standard test method ISO 16604:2004, and is very similar to the older ASTM F1671:2004. Both evaluate whether viruses, fungi and bacteria are able to penetrate protective gloves. At Sempermed, we will continue to follow the stricter ASTM F1671:2007. Download the whole article here to find out why we decided to do so and still meet the requirements of EN ISO 374-5:2016.
