【爱马斯全球】从毫米到克:手套产业大转变

How can you be sure you are choosing the right gloves for the job? Currently, glove performance is measured with millimeter thickness. However, this measurement is not the most accurate due to variations in thickness across a single glove. Disposable gloves are thickest in the fingertips and thinner in the palms due to how they are dipped in the manufacturing process.

工作时,你如何保证(自己)选择了正确的手套? 目前,都是以厚度来衡量手套性能的,(精确到)毫米。然而,这种测量(方法)不是最准确的,因为单只手套的厚度是有(轻微的)变化的。一次性手套在生产浸渍过程中,会导致指尖部位(稍微)显厚一点、手掌(稍微)显薄一点。

Thickness measurements in millimeters have the potential to vary based on which part of the glove is measured, which is frequently the palm. The glove industry is transitioning to measuring gloves by weight in grams rather than in millimeters. Gram weight circumvents the variations in thickness across a single glove. With this shift, the terminology will change as well. Rather than labeling gloves as thin, manufacturers will refer to them by their weight or use - such as lightweight or heavy duty.

(如果)以毫米为单位测量(手套)厚度,基于手套的不同部位(厚度不同)会产生(度量)变化,特别是手掌(比较薄的)部位。(所以)手套行业逐渐转变成以克重为测量单位,而不是用毫米来测量。克重测量规避了因一只手套(不同部位)厚度的变化(所带来的偏差问题)。因为这种转变,专业术语也会有相应变化。另外,比起用厚薄来给(手套)打标签,生产商将会参考重量或者用途来定义手套,比如:轻型(手套)和重型(手套)。

When did the glove industry start the shift?

手套行业什么时候开始的这种转变?

Around 2006, lighter weight gloves were introduced for the first time, but they were not well received because the original formulation of the gloves did not provide sufficient barrier protection. In 2009, lightweight gloves with a new formulation were reintroduced, offering more options for clients. Because of changes in technology, lightweight gloves have become more popular, with even 2 mil gloves being acceptable for some uses.

在2006年左右,轻薄型的手套首次问世,但并未被广为接受,因为最早批次的手套设计得并不能提供有效的防护作用。在2009年,薄型手套经过重新设计,为客户带来了更多的选择。因为技术的改变,让薄型手套变得越来受欢迎,使用者现在都能够接受厚度为0.05mm的手套了。

 Glove thickness measurements are shifting from millimeters to overall weight in grams.

手套的厚度测量从毫米转移到总克重。

Difference between millimeters and grams

毫米,克之间的区别

Gloves need to provide barrier protection for the hand. The move to gram measurements would help standardize quality in the glove industry, although gram weight has not been transitioned to the end user yet. It will also provide clearer guidance for glove purchasing decisions because certain weight may be better suited for specific purposes than others. The current standard is 3 mil and premium gloves are 5 mil or higher, but they will need to be measured at the wrist, fingertips and palm. With an allowable 0.3 gram variation in either direction, weight provides a more accurate measurement of gloves. Gram weight also is a more accurate reflection of the amount of material used in a glove and requires only a simple digital scale rather than the use of specific tools, such as a micrometer. 

手套需要提供手部保护屏障。尽管以克重(评定手套质量的概念)尚未过渡到终端用户,(但是)以克为测量单位,将会有助于手套行业规范(手套)质量,同时,它也能给采购商更明确的引导,因为相比其它(测量方法),具体的重量更加适合特定用途(使用的手套)。目前(手套)标准(厚度)是0.08mm、0.13mm或更厚,但是他们都需要在手腕上,指尖和手掌部位进行测定。(而)克重测量仅仅允许0.3g的误差范围,是一种更加精确测量手套的方法。克重还反应了手套原材料使用量,不需要诸如千分尺等特定的(测量)工具,只需要一个简单的数字秤(就可以了)。

克重将是评定手套(质量)的新标准。
