How Do the Portwest AP15-SG Nitrile Work Gloves Protect My Hands?

The Portwest AP15-SG Nitrile Work Gloves have been tested to the basic EN 420 EU standard for safety gloves, and have also achieved certification for EN 388 standards, or protection against certain mechanical risks. Their ability to protect users from these risks are broken down in the table below.

Performance Ratings

EN 388 (Protection Against Mechanical Risks)

  • EN 388: 4X31B
Hazard Level of Resistance
Abrasion Resistance Level 4
Cut Resistance X
Tear Resistance Level 3
Puncture Resistance Level 1
ISO Cut Resistance Level B

What Do These Standards Mean?

Level 4 is the highest possible mark for most EN 388 standards, except for Cut Resistance (scored out of 5) and Blade Cut Resistance (scored from A to F). As the table shows, these gloves have the highest possible level of abrasion resistance, and a very high level of tear resistance, meaning they offer reliable protection against scratches and scrapes, and are suitable for handling rough or coarse materials. They also provide very low level protection against cuts and punctures, so they can shield against very mild, brief interaction with such risks, but should not be used to work with sharp or splintering objects.

How Dexterous Are the Portwest Foam Nitrile Gloves?

The Portwest Foam Nitrile Gloves are highly dexterous due to their lightweight, stretchy design. They have a thin 18g liner that enables freedom of movement and touch sensitivity, and are partially uncovered for better flexibility.

Are the Foam Nitrile Gloves Water Resistant?

The Portwest AP15-SG gloves have a nitrile coating on their palms and fingers that helps users retain grip even if they are working with wet materials or tools. However, these gloves are not technically water resistant, and should not be submerged in liquid as their backs and wrists are uncoated.

Offers Comfort and Protection

The stretchy nylon and elastic liner of the Portwest Gloves fits snugly against the hand for consistent wearer comfort and a reduced risk of hand fatigue throughout the day. While their nitrile foam coating provides good mechanical protection and grip, it only covers part of the glove so that users can flex their hand without restriction.

Eco-Friendly Gloves

Made from recycled plastic bottles, the Portwest AP15-SG Gloves are eco-friendly. Saving 227g of CO2 per pair during production, and allowing for reduced water and energy usage, you can have peace of mind that these gloves have been made with minimal environmental harm.
