Attached is a pair of rubber gloves that were exposed to an arc flash. Does anyone have a feel for the incident energy level they may have been exposed to?

Hi Barry

it is difficult to provide an approximate on the amount of IE that the gloves in question were exposed to. However I am attaching a PPT presentation that is a summary of some arc flash tests that were conducted up here in Toronto at Kinectrics. The tests were for WH Salisbury on arc flash testing of rubber insulating gloves with leather protectors. Tests were done on the leathers, the rubber and both combined.

hope that this is of some help

best regards

Leonard,
Thank you for that PPT document. I have been asked to perform an analysis to determine what the IE was at that point. When I do it, I will post what the model says for the IE.
