Ejendals chemical permeation laboratory
Ejendals has invested in a first-class laboratory to serve you better when providing you with a safety glove that protects you from the hazardous effects of challenge chemicals.
Ejendals chemical labroratory supports a wide range of industries
Any employer who requires its employees to work with hazardous materials or in a potentially hazardous environment, such as those working in the healthcare, industrial chemical, manufacturing, cleanroom, and defence sectors, must provide personal protective equipment that complies with the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425.
Our job is to help companies ensure their employees safety
Every year our laboratory helps companies, based on their specific needs, to the very best hand protection. Because, choosing safety gloves that offer the best protection against chemicals can be complicated. The chosen gloves must prevent permeation and degradation to ensure personal safety.
What is permeation and how is it measured?
Permeation is when a chemical passes through the glove material through molecular diffusion. This occurs even when there are no physical holes in the glove material. Permeation is measured by exposing the outer surface of a material sample to the chemical against which it is being measured.
What is degradation?
Degradation is the process by which the physical properties of the safety gloves change and are damaged after being exposed to chemicals.
What is “breakthrough time”?
The breakthrough time is the elapsed time between the material’s first exposure to the chemical and the permeation rate reaching a target value.
