Detection of Holes in Medical Gloves ASTM D5151

Detection of Holes in Medical Gloves ASTM D5151

The detection of holes that leak water in medical gloves is determined by ASTM D5151 test method. ASTM D5151 test is suitable as a reference procedure for evaluating samples of medical gloves. The results are reported in terms of the number of failures among the samples tested, and a general description of the location of each hole.

    Scope:

    ASTM D5151 test method is used for detecting holes in medical gloves and is suitable as a reference method for evaluating glove samples. Holes allowing water leakage are detected under stated conditions in this method. Safe and proper use of medical gloves is not included in this method. 

    Test Procedure:

    In the ASTM D5151 test, the mandrel is mounted in a vertical position using suitable stands, clamps, and hangers. The glove is attached to the mandrel by stretching the cuff of the glove around the mandrel. A maximum of 40 mm of glove cuff should fit over the bottom end of the mandrel. Securing device is used to hold the glove in place. The remaining part of the glove is allowed to hang freely when it is filled with water.  A minimum of 1000 cm3 of water having a temperature of 15 to 30°C is poured into the top of the mandrel. Finally, the glove is inspected visually for immediate water leakage and the test is repeated after 2 minutes.

    Results: 

    The results are reported in terms of the number of failures,  the number of samples tested, and a general description of the location of each hole.
