Protection against chemicals
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CHEMICAL PROTECTION IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISIONS FOR YOUR SAFETY
Managing chemicals, whether in production, maintenance, cleaning, or other operations, brings about considerable risks.
Exposure to chemicals can have harmful effects on your health if adequate protection is not used. To prevent severe injuries, we provide a variety of chemical-resistant gloves, each with distinct protective properties. See the whole range in our chemical catalogue.
Selecting the appropriate chemical-resistant glove can be a complex task, but we are here to provide guidance. Through our free-of-charge Glove Safety Audit for Chemicals, we assist you in identifying the right protection tailored to your specific needs.

WHAT IS BREAKTHROUGH TIME?
We also provide you with a table of breakthrough times per glove material, which gives you a recommendation of which glove that’s best suitable for different kind of chemicals.
The higher number (breakthrough time in minutes), the longer you can wear the glove until chemical breakthrough. But please keep in mind that the chemical still affects the glove material negatively even though the glove is not in use. Take a new glove for each use to be on the safe side!
Read the user instruction that’s follows each protective glove, for more detailed information about your specific glove. There is also more to learn in the European standard for chemical protection gloves EN ISO 374-1:2016.
