A chemical protective glove marked with a test-beaker pictogram is airtight and waterproof. The gloves are tested for their waterproofing and airtightness in the course of the approval process (refer to the illustrations, left). Should the manufacturer's information also state a chemical against which the glove offers resistance, it may be used for a limited time for protection against this particular chemical.
