Published on

Glove Selection Guide - Analyze material vs chemical ratings.

The information appearing on this chart is intended to
serve solely as a general guide for glove material selection;
and it does not act as a warranty for the performance of any
particular glove in any particular work application.
The information does not address permeation break-through
times of any particular glove nor does it address specific work
conditions. Therefore, when evaluating the suitability of any
glove for any application, it is strongly recommended that its
evaluation be based on actual working conditions.
It is to be noted that chemical resistance in a glove is obtained
by virtue of two main factors. The first factor is that the glove
material needs to have the ability to resist the various types of
chemicals; and for that material to be abundantly sufficient in
the glove so as to provide reasonable protective thickness.
The second factor is that the gloves must be impermeable.
In other words, they must not have any ruptures or holes
that will allow permeation.
Gloves that protect only up to the wrist are generally not
recommended for handling chemicals as they lack proper wrist
and forearm protection. However, by virtue of their chemical
resistant materials, they may still be sound for use in low level
exposure environments with very diluted or light chemical splash
action. It is up to the end-user to make their own determination
as to the suitability of the product for their own intended
purpose.

It is either not affected, or only negligibly affected over a period of eight hours. Repeated use needs to be gauged. (Full immersion or splash action) Good Material is reasonably resistant for handling the chemical. Slight corrosion or discoloration may be experienced, but not enough to alter performance significantly over several hours. Repeated or prolonged use needs to be gauged. (Full immersion or splash action) Fair Material is only moderately resistant to the chemical and needs to be used with reservations. Continuous or prolonged used is not recommended as it will experience loss of strength, swelling and/or softening which may lead to permeation and/or degradation. (Splash action only) NR = Not Recommended Material is not recommended for handling the chemical as it will quickly experience permeation and/or degradation.
