In order to see it more clearly, here is how the IP standard works.

The IP index is a standard governed by the international electrotechnical commission concerning the tightness of the products. It is composed of two numbers, the first for sealing against solid bodies and the second for liquid bodies.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2651″ img_size=”570*293″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]The first number (here the 6) indicates a level of protection against solid elements. The second (here the 8) indicates the level of protection against liquids.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]First number: Protection against solid bodies
