“HOW GLOVES ARE EVALUATED AT BISON LIFE”

Under ASTM testing, all Vinyl gloves must meet certain Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) standards. AQL relates to the product’s freedom from pinholes and typically refers to the barrier protection confidence level. The lower the AQL number, the higher the quality of the product.

There are two main types of tests used to evaluate AQL in gloves—the water leak and the air inflation tests. With the Water Leak Test, a glove is filled with 1,000ML of water and inspected after two minutes for signs of leaking. The Air Inflation Tests involves inflating the glove with compressed air and conducting a visual exam for holes.


“HOW STRENGTH OF A GLOVE IS TESTED AT BISON LIFE ”

The protective barrier of vinyl gloves is also indicated by the strength of the material. ASTM strength tests are designed to imitate the strain that gloves are subjected to in actual-use situations. Glove strength is measured according to its ability to stretch, as well as resist puncturing and tearing.

Specifically, ASTM testing covers glove elasticity, strength, resistance to puncturing and the force required to tear the material. Here’s a brief description of the specific tests conducted at Bison’s Factories :

Elongation or elasticity testing signifies how much the glove material will stretch before it breaks. A higher number is better because it indicates superior performance. The Tensile Strength test refers to how much force is needed to stretch a glove until it breaks. Higher numbers reflect superior performance. Puncture Resistance testing indicates how pressure the material can stand when impacted by an object. V-Tear evaluations measure how much force is needed to create a tear. Trouser Tear assessments determine the amount of pressure that’s required to continue a tear once it has begun.
