The Abrasion Test
A rotating glass grit paper is applied to the glove surface under a controlled pressure. The rating reflects the number of cycles required to break through the material.
The Tear Test
Resistance is measured by using a machine called a "Tensometer," which pulls the glove sample apart at a controlled speed. The material receives a rating based on the amount of force required to tear it apart.
A sharp circular blade cycles back and forth over the glove sample under controlled pressure until it cuts through. Cut level results are obtained by comparing the number of cycles to tests done on reference materials.
The Puncture Test A rounded-tip probe (similiar to a very thick nail) is forced through the glove material at a controlled speed. The material is rated by how much force is required to break through the fabric.
