Chemical Resistant Gloves

In many industries, workers face the risk of exposure to hazardous chemicals, making robust hand protection essential. 123 Safety Gear offers a comprehensive collection of chemical resistant gloves, designed to protect against a wide array of chemical hazards. From PVC to Nitrile, our gloves are crafted to meet the safety needs of various professionals, ensuring durability, comfort, and resistance.

What Are Chemical Resistant Gloves?

Chemical resistant gloves are specialized protective gloves designed to resist the permeation and penetration of chemicals. They are essential for safeguarding hands from hazardous substances that can cause burns, irritation, and other serious injuries. The effectiveness of a glove in resisting specific chemicals is determined by the glove material, thickness, and design.

Comparing Glove Materials: PVC, Neoprene, Butyl, Latex, and Nitrile

Each material offers unique benefits and is suitable for different chemical exposures:

  • PVC Gloves: Provide excellent resistance to acids, fats, oils, and petroleum hydrocarbons. Ideal for handling these substances in petrochemical, construction, and sanitation industries.

  • Neoprene Gloves: Known for their versatility, neoprene gloves resist a broad range of chemicals, including oils, acids, caustics, and solvents. They are well-suited for laboratory work and industries involving a variety of chemical exposures.

  • Butyl Gloves: Offer the highest impermeability to gases and water vapors, making them ideal for working with esters and ketones. Butyl gloves are perfect for the automotive and chemical processing industries where specialized chemical protection is required.

  • Latex Gloves: While less resistant to many chemicals, latex gloves provide adequate protection against biological hazards and water-based substances, making them a popular choice in medical and food service fields.

  • Nitrile Gloves: Exceptional at providing protection against oils, greases, and some acids and chemicals. Nitrile gloves are a great choice for automotive work, painting, and industries where oil-based substances are prevalent.

Different Lengths of Chemical Resistant Gloves

The length of the glove is crucial for providing adequate protection not just to the hands but also to the wrists and forearms. At 123 Safety Gear, we offer gloves in various lengths:

  • 10-inch Gloves: Standard length, offering basic hand and wrist coverage, suitable for minimal exposure.

  • 12-inch Gloves: Provide additional wrist and lower forearm protection, ideal for situations where there might be splashing or when dipping hands into containers.

  • 14-inch Gloves: Offer extended protection up to the mid-forearm, suitable for more significant contact with hazardous substances.

  • 18-inch Gloves: Designed to protect almost up to the elbow, these gloves are essential for high exposure environments where splashes are common, such as in chemical processing or handling large quantities of hazardous materials.
