It is important to wear gloves when working with hazardous chemicals and other materials because they protect our hands from infection and contamination. Protective gloves should be selected on the basis of the hazards involved. Nitrile gloves protect against most chemicals and infectious agents. Rubber gloves protect against mild corrosive material. Neoprene gloves protect against most solvents, oils, and mild corrosive materials. Avoid latex gloves as many people are allergic or develop allergies to this material.
WHAT ARE NITRILE GLOVES? Nitrile is the superior material for today’s disposable gloves. Nitrile, also known as NBR, is a form of synthetic rubber with an unusually high resistance to oil, fuel and other chemicals. The more nitrile within the polymer, the greater the protection from oils, but the lower the flexibility.
