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 ASTM standards and involve thorough washing, visual inspection, dielectric testing, and date stamping.

*These best practices reference federal OSHA regulations and ASTM standards. Please note that state OSHA regulations may have more stringent testing intervals than shown above.

Hi-Line Rubber Exchange Program

Taking Rubber Goods testing to another level, Hi-Line Rubber Exchange Program insures that rubber products meet or exceed ASTM standards and OSHA regulations while maximizing product usage. Like clockwork, rubber goods are cleaned, tested, custom date-stamped and on your dock when you need them.

The program allows crews to maximize usage of rubber products while minimizing warehouse inventory. For those who outsource this technical duty to the experts, Hi-Line is a great resource.

Through its Hi-Line Rubber Exchange Program, Hi-Line partners with utilities, contractors, and municipalities supporting as many as 4000 lineman or a crew of three.
