Mild detergent is used to thoroughly clean. Material Safety Data Sheets provided upon request.


In accordance with ASTM standards, products are rejected during this step for either:

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


All products are dried with circulating warm air.


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.


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


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