Gloves giving protection from cold

Two things are measured with the glove: 1. how the glove’s material leads cold, and 2. the material’s insulating capacity (with contact).

The last digit next to the pictogram shows if water penetrates the glove after 30 minutes. The pictogram will be accompanied by a 3-digit code

  • The first digit show resistance to convective cold (performance level 0-4)

  • The second digit show resistance to contact cold (performance level 0-4)

    The higher performance level the better insulating capacity.

  • The third digit show permeability to water (performance level 0 or 1)

0 = water penetration after 30 minutes
1 = no water penetration after 30 minutes.
