Industrial Grade Gloves
What Are The Differences Between Medical Grade and Industrial Grade Disposable Gloves?
The AQL, or Acceptable Quality Limit, for Medical Exam Gloves (Class One Medical Devices) must be 2.5 or lower. Simply put, this means there has to be less than 2.5 defects in a batch of 100 gloves to pass. FDA requires that the AQL for an Industrial Disposable glove can be 4.0 or less for defects such as cosmetic blemishes and holes. For a Medical Examination glove, it must be 2.5 or less. Many Exam gloves are manufactured at an AQL of 1.5 or even lower.
