Protective gloves against thermal risks (heat and/or fire)

This document specifies test methods, general requirements, levels of thermal performance and the marking for protective gloves against heat and/or fire. It should be used for all gloves which protect the hands against heat and/or flames in one or more of the following forms: fire, contact heat, convective heat, radiant heat, small splashes or large quantities of molten metal.
There are other standards relevant to specific applications, as for example fire-fighting or welding.
Product tests may only give performance levels and not protection levels.

Schutzhandschuhe gegen thermische Risiken (Hitze und/oder Feuer)

Dieses Dokument legt Anforderungen, Prüfverfahren und Herstellerinformationen für Schutzhandschuhe gegen Hitze und/oder Feuer sowie deren Kennzeichnung fest. Sie sollte für alle Handschuhe angewendet werden, die die Hände gegen Hitze und/oder Feuer in einer oder mehreren der folgenden Formen schützen: Feuer, Kontaktwärme, konvektive Wärme, Strahlungswärme, kleine Spritzer geschmolzenen Metalls und große Mengen flüssigen Metalls.
Diese Norm ist nur zusammen mit EN 420 anzuwenden.
Spezifische Anwendungen, z. B. Brandbekämpfung oder Schweißen, werden in anderen Normen behandelt.
Produktprüfungen können nur für Leistungsstufen und nicht für Schutzstufen erfolgen.

Gants de protection contre les risques thermiques (chaleur et/ou feu)

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les méthodes d'essai, les exigences générales, les niveaux de performance thermique et le marquage des gants de protection contre la chaleur et/ou le feu. Il convient qu'elle soit appliquée a tous les gants qui protegent les mains contre la chaleur et/ou les flammes sous l'une ou plusieurs des formes suivantes : feu, chaleur de contact, chaleur convective, chaleur radiante, petites projections de métal liquide ou grosses projections de métal en fusion.
Cette norme s'applique uniquement en association avec l'EN 420.
D'autres normes relatives a des applications spécifiques existent, comme par exemple  la lutte contre les incendies ou la soudure.
Les essais de produits ne peuvent s'effectuer que pour des niveaux de performances et non des niveaux de protection.

For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply. 3.1 after flame time time in seconds from the removal of the ignition source until the extinction of the flame in the test specimen 3.2 after glow time time in seconds from the extinction of the flame up to the cessation of glowing. If the sample is not ignited by the ignition source, but it glows after the removal of the ignition source, then the after glow time is measured from the time of removal of the ignition source 3.3 melting liquefaction of the material under the influence of heat
