Chemical resistant gloves
Chemical resistance of safety gloves depends on the properties and thickness of the glove material.
Chemical resistance of gloves material for classes of chemicals:
Chemical-Resistant Gloves for different classes of chemicals:
|Code||Class of chemicals
|Application||Recommendations for the use of chemical-resistant gloves
|In organic synthesis, as fuel, solvents, hydraulic fluids and lubricants in the food industry, cosmetics and medicine.||Good chemical resistance to alcohols at safety gloves made of nitrile and neoprene. In PVC gloves - satisfactory. In natural latex weakest resistance.|
|Acetone, dimethyl ketone, methyl ethyl ketone, acetophenone, benzophenone, and others. Application: solvents, raw materials for the synthesis of organic substances.||High resistance to acetone and other ketones provide chemical-resistant gloves made of butyl rubber. Latex and neoprene - satisfactory protection.
|Solvents, plasticizers, flavors. In medicine - metilsalitsat, validol salol.
||To work with the esters are also recommended chemical-resistant gloves made of butyl rubber. Neoprene, PVC and nitrile can only be used to protect against splashes.|
|D||Chlorinated hydrocarbons (dichloromethane)||Derivatives of methane, methyl chloride, dichloromethane, chloroform, carbon tetrachloride. Derivatives of acetylene and aromatic hydrocarbons: ethylene dichloride, ethylene dichloride, mono and dichlorobenzene and the like. Application: as detergents for clothes, as disinfectants, refrigeration and others.
||For chlorinated hydrocarbons are recommended chemical-resistant gloves made of Viton (fluorinated rubber), Teflon and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). Splashguard can use nitrile gloves.
|E||Organic compounds containing sulfur (disulfide)||Thioalcohols thioaldehydes, monotio- and diotiokisloty et al. Usually have a very unpleasant odor; high toxicity.
|F||Aromatic hydrocarbons (toluene)
||Benzene, toluene, naphthalene, xylene, anthracene and derivatives thereof. Application: for the manufacture of plastics, drugs, solvents, pesticides and others.
||Better protection against any aromatic hydrocarbons provide chemical resistant gloves made of Viton. For naphthalene and gasoline suitable gloves made of nitrile. Nitrile also provide little protection from benzene.
||Very toxic.||Excellent chemical resistance to amines with butyl safety gloves. Good - in neoprene and nitrile. In PVC and latex - satisfactory.|
|H||Heterocyclic compound (tetrahydrofuran).
||Used in the manufacture of plastics, dyes, as in medicine (quinine, morphine, pyramidon et al.).
||Satisfactory chemical stability to tetrahydrofuran are only safety gloves butyl.
|Solvents, fragrances, natural fats. Linseed, sunflower and other oils, mutton, fish fats.||Good protection against esters, including the natural fats, provide chemically resistant gloves made of neoprene and nitrile.
(H - heptane)
|Oil, natural gas (methane, propane, butane, etc..), Gasoline, kerosene, diesel e. fuel, etc.. Application: fuel (engine, jet), solvents, raw materials for the chemical industry.
||To protect against oil are gloves made of nitrile. Chemical resistance to hydrocarbons on the order of the nitrile and neoprene exceeds PVC. Latex gloves for working with petroleum products in general are not designed. (see oil resistant gloves)
(caustic soda 40%)
|Hydroxides of alkali and alkaline earth metals. Water-soluble strong bases. The most commonly used sodium hydroxide (caustic soda, caustic soda, caustic alkali).||All of the above chemical resistant gloves provide excellent resistance to alkalis.
|L||Inorganic acids (sulfuric acid 93%)
||Sulfuric, hydrochloric, nitric ...||With a weak acid solution (20%) can work in virtually any rubber safety gloves. When working with concentrated acids, chemical-resistant gloves should be selected on the recommendations (see the acid-resistant gloves).|
