There is a major distinction between powdered and powder-free gloves. About 10 percent of medical field employees dealing c5712 dipped rubber products suffer from this allergy.

Latex Protein Analysis | Akron Rubber Development Laboratory

The proteins probably would stay adsorbed on the latex particles throughout the compounding process. Login Register Subscribe Current Issue. Water soluble proteins are extracted in a buffer solution and then precipitated to concentrate them and also to separate them from water soluble substances that may interfere with the determination.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Contrary to conventional thickening agents, silica enhances the tensile. Register for a trial account. It then could be concluded that the latex has been cleaned.

c5712 However, the low silica concentrations necessary make this a cost-effective process for addressing protein allergy concerns. Adkinson, Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, 98, Print 1 2 3 4 5 page sstarting from page current page.

D Specification for Rubber Surgical Gloves. Are you sure you want to empty the cart? A previous paper on cleaning latex films with fumed silica5 presented protein results derived by ASTM D Enter your account email address to request a password reset: Some of the proteins can be more harmful than others.


Today, some 12, ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence. Navigation Top Stories Search. Although natural latex is the best product available for price and performance, the allergy potential has caused customers to shy away from it and look for substitutes which often are more expensive aatm sometimes inferior.

Testing procedures required, please see the full standard for complete details.

It is well known that proteins can transfer from the latex to the axtm.

ASTM D5712 – 15

The proteins then easily are removed. Some laboratories claim that they f5712 measure lower levels of proteins. Tables I and II report results with silica at a level of 1 to astj weight percentage. Many gloves contain less proteins today, but protein cleaning is an important ongoing issue. However, traces still may remain and cause skin reactions. Latex protein analysis ASTM D, might not represent a true picture of the latex irritation problem.

The silica also may serve as a thickening agent. After displacement, the protein become mobile and easier to dispose off. C5712 manufacturers try to avoid powder by producing a powder-free or powder-reduced glove. Remember me for one month. Test Method A definitive procedure that produces a test result: Two different sources of blood serum were used. Natural proteins are the main reason for Type I latex irritation.

Historical Version s e5712 view previous versions of standard. 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. That’ll take 30 years For autonomous d5172 to gain passengers’ trust, communication is key ‘Impatient’ Mary Barra reawakens spirit of crisis at GM Nitto invests to understand, better serve its customers Self-driving cars might make people sick to their stomachs.


It is suggested by R. Total and specific analysis of proteins in latex goods D712 total quantity of latex proteins in gloves is evaluated by extracting the rubber with an aqueous solution and measuring according to ASTM D This paper suggests a way to eliminate the proteins with a simple, elegant and inexpensive method using fumed silica additives.

Table III shows results with silica at a lower level of 0. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Another method of limiting protein migration is by coating the natural latex surface with a polymer barrier which also provides smoothness.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

It is assumed that all who use this test method will be trained analysts capable of performing common laboratory procedures skillfully and safely. Click here to download full list of books.

However, these methods are good for the coated surface only and proteins migrate to both sides.

Other methods for protein removal treatment include passing the latex through special ion exchange resins6 or altering the protein structure with protease enzymes. At least two specific tests were developed to further evaluate allergenic protein levels.
