Abstract : Three cosmetic gloves fabricated from the RREP formulation were evaluated. This evaluation was conducted in an effort to determine the reasons for donning difficulties and unusually high cable forces on hands fitted with these gloves. The results indicate that the gloves are too small for the hands, and this factor contributes to the undesirable features observed. Finally, the wide range of thickness measurements indicate the need for closer quality control. (Author)
