Abstract:

Preliminary results of the implementation of self-healing polymers in all-rubber protective gloves are presented. The aim of the study was to evaluate the self-healing process of the elastomeric composite in PPE (personal protective equipment). Tests were performed for two types of materials based on methyl vinyl silicone rubber with and without a textile carrier. Assessment of the surface morphology of the materials was performed before and after the self-healing process. The protective properties, including tear, deformation and chemical permeation resistance were determined. Surface damage was simulated to reflect real changes that might occur during work. The materials were damaged by simulated puncture, cutting and abrasion. All tests were performed for samples without damage, with micro damage as well as after self-repair. The results obtained confirm the possibility of using the elastomeric composite tested in the construction of protective gloves and showed the effectiveness of the self-healing process.
