Chemical Protection Breakdown
Polymer Products

Immersion Immersion

Splash Splash

Nitrile Nitrile

Nitrile glove example
  • Excellent puncture, abrasion and snag resistance for a thin polymer glove
  • Protects from bases, oils, many solvents and esters, greases and animal fats
  • Excellent wet and dry grip
  • Not recommended for ketones or heavy organic solvents

PVC PVC

PVC glove example
  • Provides good resistance against many acids, caustics, bases and alcohols
  • Excellent abrasion resistance
  • Not recommended for ketones and many solvents
  • Punctures and tears more easily than equivalent nitrile or neoprene styles

Neoprene Neoprene

Neoprene glove example
  • Resists a broad range of oils, acids, caustics and solvents
  • Excellent mobility and flexibility even at low temperatures
  • Less resistant to snags, punctures, abrasions and cuts than nitrile

PVA PVA

PVA glove example
  • High resistance to aliphatics, aromatics, chlorinated solvents, esters and most ketones
  • Resists snags, punctures, abrasions and cuts
  • Water soluble: will degrade if exposed to water-based solutions

Natural Rubber Latex Natural Rubber Latex

Natural Rubber Latex glove example
  • Provides resistance to many acids and alcohols
  • Highly flexible material
  • Good cut protection
  • May cause allergic reactions
  • Should not be used with lubricants and/or oils

Laminated Film Laminated Film

Laminated Film glove example
  • Broadest spectrum of chemical resistance in Ansell glove range (250 chemicals)
  • Lightweight and flexible
  • Often used in spill and response kits
  • Limited protection against mechanical hazards

Butyl Butyl

Butyl glove example
  • Provides resistance against aldehydes, ketones, esters and concentrated mineral acids
  • Excellent dexterity and flexibility
  • ChemTek™

Viton/Butyl Viton/Butyl

Viton/Butyl glove example
  • Provides resistance against aliphatics, halogenated and aromatic hydrocarbons, and concentrated mineral acids
