1.1 This practice covers all surgeon's and examination gloves, made from either synthetic or natural rubber latex, marketed at the time this practice is published, for which there is no previous real time aging data available, and for which there are at least 12 months of storage as finished goods under typical warehouse conditions. This practice describes how to develop real time aging data for gloves that are part of finished goods inventory (including gloves that may no longer be manufactured) in order to verify the estimated expiration date (see Note 1). Manufacturers may use this data as a starting point for real time aging studies as described in Practice D7160.

Note 1:  Accelerated aging for three-year shelf life is described in Practice D7160.

1.2  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
