Factors to consider when using protective gloves

When using labor protection gloves, both the factors of the gloves and the external environment should be considered. Related product: Anti-Cutting Gloves.

1. Exposure level when gloves are used

The chemical resistance of labor protection gloves is significantly reduced when they come into contact with chemical substances for an extended period. Increasing the concentration of chemicals exposed, or directly immersing gloves in chemicals, can result in gloves being penetrated in less time than the manufacturer specifies.

2. Using gloves to measure the ambient temperature

When wearing protective gloves, the temperature rises, the rate of chemical penetration rises, and the penetration time falls. At room temperature (20-25 ° C), standard penetration time data is obtained. Gloves' chemical resistance will be greatly reduced at this temperature.

3. Protective glove thickness

In general, choose thicker gloves or wear two pairs at the same time if necessary, because thicker materials have better chemical resistance and greatly extend penetration time. Of course, when considering glove thickness, the flexibility and feel required for the job must also be considered.

4. Protective glove surface treatment and lining

In addition to the material of labor protection gloves, the surface treatment and lining of the gloves differ. There are smooth, rough, embossed, and other textures. Lining options include cotton batting, fabrics, and unlined gloves. The patterned, rough surface is more anti-skid and can safely hold wet and smooth objects. Cotton lining and cotton lining gloves perform well in terms of sweat absorption, while fabric lining gloves perform well in terms of high-temperature resistance, and unlined gloves perform well in terms of flexibility and touch.

5. Chemical combinations that could exist

Pure chemicals are used in the penetration experiments. Chemical mixtures, in reality, can significantly alter the penetration rate and physical properties of a given glove material. In general, materials with good anti-permeability properties for each component are chosen for chemical mixtures. However, the penetration time of the mixture may be longer than the penetration time of a single component. The user can assess the ability of the gloves to protect the mixture under use conditions, particularly for more toxic mixtures.

6. Physical characteristics of work gloves

The physical properties of labor protection gloves include puncture resistance, tear resistance, abrasion resistance, and tensile strength. Chemicals infiltrate through punctured holes or torn gaps, causing more hand damage than chemical penetration through the molecular layer. It is sometimes necessary to wear two different gloves, one for mechanical protection and the other for chemical protection.

As a result, when using labor protection gloves, we must consider not only the performance of the gloves themselves but also the external environment and chemical composition of the gloves, to ensure that the gloves truly protect.
