EN 511:2006


In cold environments it is extra important to protect the hands from cold burns. This standard measures how well the glove can withstand both convective cold and contact cold. In addition, water permeation is tested after 30 minutes. European Glove Standard EN 511 specifies the requirements and test methods for gloves which protect against convective and conductive cold up to -50°C, as well as water permeability. Gloves that will protect you and warm you even in the coldest conditions can easily be recognized by bearing the EN511 symbol.

More often than not, the sign will be accompanied with three numbers that show how well the glove performed in a particular test. With convective and contact cold tests, the higher the number the better the performance, while water penetration is only marked with either 0 or 1, where 0 signifies that the glove failed and 1 signifying that the glove passed.


PU Coatings deliver extra grip, puncture and abrasion resistance while providing protection against oils, fats, and greases. Manufactured from a softer polymer, PU coating can be applied in very thin coats allowing excellent dexterity and tactile sensitivity. PU coated gloves offer protection from minor cuts and scrapes. Our exclusive technology of high-density PU (HDPU) provides superior breathability and higher abrasion resistance than regular PU.




Nitrile Coating provide superior resistance to puncture, abrasion and cuts. Coated Nitrile gloves effectively replace cotton in a broad range of dry and light liquid applications. Other advantages include excellent grip in oily working environments. Additionally, foam nitrile, micro-foam nitrile and sandy foam nitrile absorb oil and provide improved grip.
