Rubber Goods Testing
With two full service Rubber Goods Test Labs (Illinois and Massachusetts), Hi-Line tests over 250,000
rubber gloves, sleeves, blankets, line hose, hoods, and boots each year. We test all classes of
rubber from Class 00 to Class 4.
Hi-Line’s test labs are climate controlled and state-of-the-art. All testing procedures conform to
standards and involve thorough washing, visual inspection, dielectric testing, and date stamping.

OSHA regulations may have more stringent testing intervals than shown above.

Does Your Day Begin with Luck or Safety? Today, many companies have administrative safety procedures and policies that either meet OSHA requirements or exceed them – yet the challenge is so many still choose to take shortcuts. Things that we might miss or take for granted when working in hazardous work environments can ultimately lead to dangerous safety risks.
