CE Food Safe

European legislation with respect to Food Contact Materials (Directive EC1935/2004) requires that food contact materials shall not transfer their ingredients to food and must not modify the organoleptic properties (ie. colour, smell, texture and taste) of the food. Products intended for food contact shall be labelled as such.

This standard specifies the determination of the resistance of protective glove materials to permeation by potentially hazardous non-gaseous chemicals under the condition of continous contact.

Gloves must prove that they are an effective barrier against liquid and micro-organisms. Performance levels are according to Acceptable Quality Levels (AQL) whereby samples are taken from a batch of gloves and tested during production for pinholes and leaks be either inflation with air or by filling with water.

Gloves must meet at least level 2 to be considered micro-organism resistant.
Level 1 = AQL 4.0
Level 2 = AQL 1.5
Level 3 = AQL 0.65
