  1. Electrical breakdown
  2. Leakage current exceeding maximum limits set forth by the ASTM standards.

DRYING

VISUAL INSPECTION

Rubber goods are carefully inspected, both inside and out, for signs of cracking due to age, imperfections in the material, minor tears, chemical attack, and corona cutting.

STAMPING

Rubber goods have the certification date stamped directly on the product in ink and are labeled in accordance with ASTM standards.

PACKING

Rubber goods will be packed in cartons. Rejected gloves will be hole punched or destroyed. Return of gloves or recycling is available if requested.
