Oil refinery safety

NITRILE safety gloves are a much better fit than PVC work wear in the refining process.

The supported nitrile hand protection provides longer and broader chemical resistance. 

PVC gloves do not offer much resistance to many of the chemicals used in the refining process because they allow certain aromatic chemicals, such as toluene and xylene, to permeate without causing any visual change in the work safety gloves, except for some stiffening.
