Safety or Durability – A Caution Note to Unsuspected End Users
Which is the more important attribute for a chemical resistant glove? The safety performance or a long usage lifespan? Well, the ideal answer is, of course, both. Why this question in the first place? Before I answer, please allow me to start with some background.
Chemical Resistance Safety Gloves: Myths and Facts
When it comes to chemical resistance gloves, one cannot deny that there are some misconceptions among the end users. One of the causes for this misconception is the absence of helpful information for the end users to make an informed choice. Added to this confusion, most of the chemical suppliers fail to provide accurate knowledge about the right glove materials to be considered when exposed to their chemicals. More than often, we come across a MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) which simply states “wear protective gloves” or “use impervious gloves”.
