Gloves and Finger Cots Used in Cleanrooms and Other Controlled Environments

Published by: Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology / 2013 / 24 pages
This Recommended Practice (RP) describes procedures for testing and evaluating gloves and finger cots used in cleanrooms and other controlled environments. Tests are provided for determining cleanliness, physical and chemical integrity, and other relevant properties. Guidelines are also provided to assist users in the proper selection of gloves or finger cots.

It is impractical to design and manufacture gloves or finger cots to meet all requirements of every application. Therefore, the user should base the selection of gloves and finger cots on the requirements of the process, the analytical data resulting from evaluation testing, and the product data provided by the manufacturer. The application for which a glove is intended should determine which tests are appropriate and relevant.
