Chemical Resistant Gloves  (6 Products)
Chemical-resistant gloves are versatile hand-protection supplies for working with acidic or corrosive substances, handling and processing raw foods, or picking up equipment that contains lubricants or caustic fluids. Many offer other safeguards as well. These work gloves come in a range of outer coatings, including different polymers, natural or manufactured rubber, and vinyl. Read More

Want to know more about Chemical Resistant Gloves

Basic chemical-resistant gloves for work

Gloves to protect hands against harmful liquids and substances are among a family of work gloves that offer safeguards against a variety of workplace hazards. Chemical-resistant gloves sometimes consist of materials that also protect against impacts, abrasions, cuts, punctures, and extreme temperatures. Basic gloves for chemical protection, however, have a coating of neoprene rubber, a durable material that not only resists chemicals but also offers wide-ranging thermal protection. These coated work gloves are the first line of defense for working with hot fluids or cold raw foods, while also resisting the penetration of organic or bacterial fluids.

Chemical-resistant gloves with nitrile coating

Another synthetic rubber material that offers multiple safeguards is nitrile, a chemical-resistant material that also provides protection against thermal extremes and punctures. These nitrile-coated gloves have wide-ranging application in different industries, from the manufacturing of chemicals and paints to the handling of small components that may have sharp edges. Nitrile is also latex-free, hypoallergenic, and highly resilient, so it provides ideal material as safe, touch-sensitive exam gloves in the medical industry. Chemical-resistant nitrile gloves protect practitioners not only from infectious fluids during exams and procedures, but also from needle punctures, while also minimizing skin irritants on patients.

PVC-coated work gloves

Chemical-resistant polymer gloves include polyvinyl chloride, or PVC gloves. Most PVC-coated gloves are also abrasion and cut-resistant. They are ideal for mechanics who work with glass and resin-impregnated brake pads or linings, crew members who work with oil drilling rigs and machinery, and commercial fishermen who work with gaffs, hooks, and hydraulic equipment.

Coated work gloves with surface grips and inner linings

Many gloves with a chemical-resistant coating also have a coating on the palms and finger tips to provide a secure grip when working both wet and dry materials. The coating consists of a range of components, including latex, rubber, and polymers, normally textured for added dexterity and handling. Chemical-resistant gloves also come with different inner linings for protection against the cold, including nylon and moisture-wicking cotton.

Different styles and lengths

Chemical-resistant gloves come in three different lengths that include the following:

  • Hand gloves - form-fitting elastic wrist cuffs
  • Gauntlet cuffs - long collars above the wrists
  • Full-length sleeves - extend above the elbows to the biceps
The choice depends on the requirements of the job, normally a trade-off between protection against the materials people are handling and the dexterity necessary to handle them.
