Quality Procedures

Learn more about these terms that determine the quality of Aurelia® Gloves.

Dimensional Requirements

Length, width, and thickness of the gloves must be balanced and approved by the relevant authorities. The glove must be thin enough for mobility and sensitivity, but thick enough for stretching.

Barrier Protection

The quality of barrier protection is based off the materials used to develop the glove. Vinyl properties within the glove must meet federal standards.

Tensile Strength

Tensile Strength is determined by the amount of stretching or pulling that a glove can withstand until it breaks or tear. A high percentage of tear resistance indicates a high breaking point for the glove.

Water Leaking Test

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) requires an Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL) test that ensures a product has no holes or thin spots prone to rupture.

Storage Conditions

Products should never be stored in an area that exceeds 90°F (32° C), in ultraviolet or intense artificial light, or near chemicals or ozone-generating sources, such as electric motors. In addition, petroleum-based hand lotions, creams for dermatitis, and oils quickly degrade most materials and should be avoided. Hand sanitizer must dry completely prior to touching gloves, because the alcohol content in the formulation has the same effect.


The manufacturing standards for Aurelia® examination gloves are established by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM), after the Food and Drug Administration approved the manufacturing site. The standard testing procedures adhere to ISO 2859-1:1989 regulations for water thickness, tensile strength and dimension.
