Puncture Resistance
Puncture resistance is measured as the force required to break through samples from gloves with a standard puncture needle.
The design of this needle is comparable to that of a large nail.

Performance Level 1 2 3 4
Puncture Force (N) 20 60 100 150

Needlestick resistance
To assess resistance form puncture by a needlestick, a 25 gauge hypodermic needle can be used.
