NEW EN-388 2016 Glove Safety Standard

The new EN 388 standard is here and it will introduce two new protection level indicators. Many manufacturers will immediately begin using new testing and labeling.   EN 388 currently has a four digit code, and the new standard expands this to a six digit code.  The new characters will indicate the TDM-100 test results and the new Impact Protection Test.
