In most cases the powder is removed by washing with water which further reduces the protein content by extraction. A precision and bias statement shall be reported at the end of a test method. Condoms with different lubricants as typically marketed, have not been tested in an ASTM ILS to determine if, and if so to what degree, the lubricant interferes with the assay. Mechanisms of protein cleaning by fumed silica—displacement or attachment The mechanism by which dispersed fumed silica reduces protein content in the latex has not been scientifically established. Please login to your authorized staff account to use this feature. However, the 20 ppm proteins left, may happen to be harmful and the latex status as far as allergen content did not change at all.

Latex Protein Analysis

Washing is minimal astm d5712 since atm astm d5712 is clean, there is no need for costly off line post treatments. However, these methods are good for the coated surface only and proteins migrate to both sides.

Astm d5712 latex gloves are powdered for two reasons. No items in cart. Although natural latex is the best product available for price satm performance, the allergy potential has caused customers to shy away from it and look for substitutes which often are more expensive and sometimes inferior.

The silica dipping process is simple, short and inexpensive. D Specification for Rubber Surgical Gloves. FORMAT Single User Subscription Site License Subscription BOOKS All Books PACKAGES All Packages EDITION to PUBLISHER. Akron Rubber Development Laboratory, Inc. ASTM D might be misleading and can cause unfortunate conclusions.


Copyright Compu-tecture, Inc. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Other advantages are an increase in strength, stability and transport properties. Total and specific analysis of proteins in latex goods The total quantity of latex proteins in gloves is evaluated by extracting the rubber with an astm d5712 solution and measuring according to ASTM D Further analysis by the LEAP method also at Guthrie Research, resulted in clean films having protein values below the detection level, 0.

That’ll take 30 years. A previous paper on cleaning asm films with fumed silica5 presented protein results derived by ASTM D The fumed silica attaches itself to the rubber particle and substitutes the proteins. However, traces still may remain and cause skin reactions.

Land Use and Development.

Are you sure you x5712 to empty the cart? It is thought that proteins in the glove are being washed out and replaced by water molecules, creating diffusible channels through which small diameter species, like the HIV virus, could pass.

Examples of test methods include, but aastm not limited to: It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. This is in contradiction to what was proposed before where fumed silica attaches itself to the proteins on the surface of the latex particle, binding them there.


At least two specific tests were developed to further evaluate allergenic protein levels. About 10 percent of f5712 field employees dealing with dipped rubber products suffer from this allergy. Natural Rubber Science and Technology, A. The astm d5712 editions for d5721 book are also astm d5712 Skip directly to search Skip directly to A to Z list Skip directly to navigation Skip directly to page options Skip directly to site content.

Natural proteins are the main reason for Type I latex irritation. However, the astm d5712 silica concentrations atsm make this a cost-effective process for addressing protein allergy concerns. An astm d5712 advantage is enhancing latex viscosity resulted only with fumed silica B. This dd5712 suggests a way to eliminate the proteins with a simple, elegant and inexpensive method using fumed silica additives.

Enter your personal account email address to request a password reset: This problem has become more apparent in the last several years due to the increased use of rubber gloves for infectious diseases protection. Another method of limiting protein migration is by coating the natural latex surface with a polymer barrier which also provides smoothness.
