Chemical resistant gloves are an important aspect of protection
against hazardous materials. It is critical that users select the
correct glove material based on the chemicals used and the gloves
permeation data. Inappropriate use of glove material may actually
injure a worker as chemicals can quickly permeate the barrier. Please
review the manufacturer, test data, and our glove usage recommendations.
