This European Standard specifies a test method designed to evaluate the behaviour of materials used for protective clothing when such materials are struck by small liquid metal splashes, especially when molten steel particles are projected against the material. It applies to any pliable material, or assembly of materials, designed to protect workers against small splashes of molten metal. The results obtained by this method enable the behaviour of different materials which have undergone this test under standardized conditions to be compared. They do not permit conclusions with respect to contacts with large splashes of molten cast iron or other metal to be drawn, neither will they allow the behaviour of complete garments under industrial conditions to be predicted.
