Clean room gloves must be washed and cleaned with deionised water in clean rooms after production. The amount of particles present on the surface of the gloves must be known.
Glove manufacturers may wish to brand their gloves as ISO Class 4 (Fed STD Class 10) or ISO Class 5 (Fed STD Class 100), Shield Scientific challenge this paradigm and would ask how classifications for airborne particulates relate to gloves. In reality there are no internationally recognised specification limits that would determine whether a cleanroom glove is ISO Class 4 (Fed STD Class 10) or ISO Class 5 (Fed STD Class 100) compatible. Accordingly it is left to users to decide what is suitable for their process. With this in mind, Shieldskin XtremeTM gloves are branded as follows:
|DI||Single washed in deionised water||The most economical option Typical particle levels <3000 per cm² ≥ 0.5 µm|
|DI+||Triple washed in deionised water||The median brand option Typical particle levels <3000 per cm² ≥ 0.5 µm|
|DI++||Washed several times in deionised water||Premium offering based on extra processing Typical particle levels <650 per cm² ≥ 0.5 µm|
