Alright, everyone, welcome back to the place we are testing every single glove that we can get our hands on. Uh, today we're looking at the

Astro powder free, new and improved.

It's, uh, too many, too many things going on there, but let's open it up and get it going. Tara's gonna help me out here. What we're gonna do is cut out a, uh, what's called a dog bone. It's a sample of the glove that we're gonna use to test in the, uh, elongation machine. Awesome. Look at this. We got more orange gloves. What's with the orange? Okay. Orange after orange. It's kind of weird. All right. This texture is bananas. This, it's like a, it's like a three D. Look at this. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Have you seen that before? Oh, no,

I've not. It's very nice.

Yeah, it's like a cube. It's like some sort of a, like, some sort of a puzzle with, it's a Mc Escher kind of a situation. Six, six-sided thing. Oh my gosh. This is so dick. Wow. Okay, let me, let's do the, uh, the wince test here. Okay. That broke faster than I thought for how thick it is. Oh my gosh. That is not breaking at all. Wow. It's a pretty good glove. This says it's seven mil, so let me know on that. It says it's good for plumbing, janitorial, Marine has a picture of a boat painting, automotive and chemical, uh, superior puncture and, uh, abrasion resistance. I agree with that.

And I'm ready to start.

All right. Go ahead.

February 30,

We're ready. Oh, smell that. Smell. That's weird. That's like a bad janitor's closet. Oh, right. Lemme see. That is the,

That's Nitro. Oh, that's, yeah, that's Nitro.


All right. So what we're doing is, um, the elongation and tensile strength test. So basically what we're doing is stretching this sample until it breaks. When it breaks, we're gonna see on the graph here, that line's gonna go down. We want to see this above 500% ideally. Um, but if it's a little bit older glove, it can be in the four to 500% range. We've only had 1, 2, 3, 4 that have made past that 500 range. Um, and this one's doing pretty well. Where is it? Oh my goodness. So this is the low, so you want to lower the better, so on. And this thing is doing extremely well. Oh, wow.

Didn't quite climb.


There's a joke in there somewhere. <laugh>. Um, so why did that happen?

Well, lemme look at our sample and see if perhaps there was something interfering.

Do you think it's the, uh, the little, the little hexagons make it so that it's not as strong or something?

No, they shouldn't. I'm not seeing anything on the sample itself that would indicate a premature break. The halt number

Is oh 2 17 36. So

There's a little imperfection right in the center of that rubber, you see? Right,


Right there along there. So

I think that could have been it. Yes. Alright, well we're gonna mark this one as a failure. Obviously tensile strength, 4.79 is very low. Uh, 3 9 360 7 is one of the lowest, um, uh, elongation we've had. Uh, which definitely there's a joke in there. Um, but, uh, you know, if we're doing this test, uh, you know, professionally like you normally do for your job, you would do several of these. You might redo this test. Yes. You have time for that. An outlier. Yeah, we don't have time for that here, unfortunately. Um, the thing is that there's a lot of really great gloves. I like these gloves. I don't think they're gonna puncture, you know, while using them. Um, I don't like the orangeness to them, which, um, is a scientific term and uh, you know, your mileage may vary on this, but um, yeah, it didn't do well in our test, so there you go. Alright guys, thank you so much for checking this out and, uh, catch you on the next test.
