Leather Protector Considerations

Leather protectors must meet ASTM specification F696 and should always be worn over rubber insulating gloves to prevent mechanical damage to the rubber gloves, except for those conditions detailed in ASTM F496. The protector must be properly sized and shaped to avoid the deformation or damage of the rubber insulating glove. The minimum distances between the gauntlet and the cuff are listed in the table shown.

For more details on leather protectors or rubber gloves, please refer to ASTM D120, F496 and F696.
