What Does AQL Mean?
AQL refers to a quality standard for controlling pinhole defects in disposable gloves and stands for "Acceptable Quality Level".
The AQL is tested using a random sample of gloves from any given batch during initial production and then testing for subsequent pin hole defects within this batch. These tests are carried out against accurately defined procedures.
Typically disposable gloves have an AQL of 1.5 or 4.0. Any glove with an AQL of 1.5 means that there is a statistical probability that 1.5% of any tested batch could have pinhole defects. The international standard for medical grade disposable gloves is set at 1.5 and all of our standard ranges of Nitrile, Latex and Vinyl gloves meet this exacting standard. We also offer a range of AQL 4.0 gloves from market leading brand Bodyguards. Although these offer less protection than an AQL 1.5 glove they are suitable for non invasive procedures and therefore ideal for protecting hands from dirt and potential irritants during day to day tasks.
Overall when buying your disposable gloves the most important thing to remember is that the lower the AQL number the higher the quality of barrier protection you will have for your hands!
