Chemical Resistance Chart
The following is a general guide to chemical resistance of our glove products. Note that this guide in no way warrants the performance of any glove, but is intended solely to provide typical resistance characteristics of various glove materials to given chemical agents. In every case, resistance can be affected by factors such as ambient or solution temperature, chemical concentration, length of time in direct contact with chemicals, material thickness of gloves and other factors. Preliminary testing of glove suitability should always precede use in hazardous applications.

  • LATEX:
    Rubber-Ideal resistance against abrasions, tearing or cutting: good gripping characteristics and temperature resistance. Withstands water based solutions; translucent styles suited to general household cleaning chores. Heavier styles resist paint strippers and strong cleaning agents, while providing grip and tactile advantages. Coated styles overlaid on fabric better withstand contact with sharp-edged material such as knife blades, glass shards, splintered wood, brick and rock. Not recommended where open flame is present and not effective against oil, grease or petroleum products or high concentration derivatives of these products.
    Ideal protection against strong alkalis, acids and a wide range of other chemicals. Excellent temperature resistance. Provides superior tactile strength and flexibility similar to latex. Impermeable to moisture, gasses and vapors, and resists commercial herbicides and pesticides, degreasing solutions and oils. Coated neoprene gloves are used in plating, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and metal working, galvanizing and industrial material handling applications.
    Ideal resistance to many hazardous chemicals and chemical solvents. This synthetic also resists cutting and punctures and provides flexibility. Performs well in a wide range of temperatures against caustics, oils, kerosene, turpentine, greases, herbicides, pesticides, acids, naphtha and alcohol. Used widely in farm and landscape applications as well as commercial cleaning, painting and maintenance applications.
  • PVC:
    Ideal for short-term protection against many oils, caustics, fats, acids and petro-hydrocarbons. Provide economical protection against alcohols and glycol ethers. Limited temperature range from 25 F to 150 F. Not recommended for use with ketones, non-petro hydrocarbons and compounds of nitric, halogenic and hetrocyclic types
Key To Degradation Ratings:
E - Excellent: Fluid has very little degrading effect.
G - Good: Fluid has minor degrading effect.
F - Fair: Fluid has moderate degrading effect.
P - Poor: Fluid has pronounced degrading effect.
Nr - Not Recommended: for work with this chemical.
