EN 511 Cold Resistance
Glove performance withstanding both convective and contact cold plus protection against water permation.
The standard EN 511 for cold resistance specifies the requirements for a glove to protect hands against convective and contact cold down to -50°C.
The digits underneath the ‘Cold resistance’ pictogram show the performance levels of the glove on each of these qualities:
- (A) Resistance to convective cold (Performance level 0-4): Based on insulation qualities of the glove material, measured by the transfer of cold via convection.
- (B) Resistance to contact cold (Performance level 0-4): Based on termal resistance of the glove material when coming in contact with a cold object.
- (C) Penetration to water, where 0 is water penetration and 1 the opposite.
