BIS All rubber gum boots and ankle boots, IS 5557 (Part 2)

Product Description

Rubber boots are indispensable across multiple applications for protection against environments exposing feet to elements like water, mud, snow, oil etc. To regulate the quality and performance of rubber gum boots and ankle boots in India, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has formulated IS 5557 (Part 2):2018.

BIS Certification For All rubber gum boots and ankle boots, IS 5557 (Part 2): 2018

Introduction

Rubber boots are indispensable across multiple applications for protection against environments exposing feet to elements like water, mud, snow, oil etc. To regulate the quality and performance of rubber gum boots and ankle boots in India, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has formulated IS 5557 (Part 2):2018.

It covers key product performance attributes that need to be validated through testing such as tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and acid/alkali resistance along with testing for design, construction and raw material aspects. Ensuring compliance as per BIS benchmarks is vital before rubber boots can be sold in the Indian market. This compliance is essential for user industries as well to prevent safety incidents or productivity loss from early wear and tear.

However adequate in-house testing infrastructure for attributes like oil resistance, electrical insulation etc may not be feasible for manufacturers especially in evolving product categories like rubber boots. This necessitates working with experienced certification partners like EVTL India possessing advanced multi-sector testing capabilities.

MANDATORY TESTING

  • Laboratory validation of rubber compound ingredients as per positive list

  • Testing thickness, dimensions, sole bonding strength

  • Testing tensile strength and elongation for structural reliability

  • Testing for surface abrasion wear to determine the durability

  • Testing for acid, alkali, gasoline & other chemicals resistance

  • Testing for flame, ozone resistance along with insulation properties

Conclusion

In conclusion, the stringent standards set forth by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) for rubber gum boots and ankle boots underscore the importance of quality and performance in ensuring user safety and productivity. IS 5557 (Part 2):2018 mandates rigorous testing across various attributes, including tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and chemical resilience. Compliance with these standards is not only a prerequisite for market entry but also a vital measure to prevent safety incidents and minimize productivity losses due to premature wear and tear.

Given the evolving nature of product categories like rubber boots and the challenges associated with in-house testing infrastructure, collaboration with experienced certification partners such as EVTL India becomes indispensable. EVTL India's advanced multi-sector testing capabilities encompass critical aspects like rubber compound validation, dimensional integrity, and resistance to various environmental stressors. By leveraging these comprehensive testing protocols, manufacturers can ensure the reliability and durability of their rubber boots, thus fostering safer and more resilient working environments across diverse industries.
