Latex Gloves

Latex safety gloves are good for handling water-based and biological materials, but they are not appropriate for handling organic solvents. They offer little chemical protection and detecting puncture holes is difficult. Use of latex gloves may also trigger allergic reactions.

 

 

Nitrile Gloves

Great general-use gloves, nitrile safety gloves work well for handling solvents, greases oils and some bases and acids. Tears and breaks are easy to detect, and nitrile safety gloves are a good alternative for people with latex allergies.

 

 

Neoprene Gloves

\"NeopreneSuitable for: Extended contact

We offer neoprene safety gloves that are good for handling phenols, bases, acids, hydrocarbons, fuels, alcohols and peroxides. These gloves can handle most hazardous chemicals, but they are not recommended for aromatic or halogenated hydrocarbons.

 

 

Kevlar Gloves

\"KevlarSuitable for: Applications where cuts are possible

Kevlar safety gloves are some of the toughest safety gloves we offer. These gloves are cut-resistant, but they should be layered with disposable gloves if there is potential for chemical or biological contamination.

 

 

These are just some of the many safety gloves we offer. If you have questions about the appropriate kind of glove to wear for your next project, contact the team at Banner Systems today!
