Appropriate Glove Use
The chemical compatibility information in this table is intended to provide general guidelines for appropriate glove usage.
Glove manufacturers provide specific, detailed information on their websites. Contact DRS at 333-2755 if you have questions.
Good Chemical Resistance
Natural Rubber Latex
(w/wo powder)*
Poor Chemical Resistance
(BarrierTM, Silvershield )
Aqueous solutions, acetone, formaldehyde,
alcohols, dilute mineral acids and bases
Aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, DMSO,
formaldehyde, alcohols, most amines, ethyl ether
Chlorinated aliphatic and aromatic solvents,
ketones, THF, isocyanates, DMSO
Acids, alcohols, acetonitrile
Many organic solvents, ethyl ether, chlorinated
hydrocarbons, Perchloric acid, isocyanates
Chlorinated hydrocarbons, aldehydes, nitro
compounds, isocyanates
Diethylamine, dimethylethylamine, 70% HF
Acid Resistant
Concentrated acids
Most organic solvents
Chlorinated solvents
Thin barrier protective gloves (such as Natural Rubber Latex and Nitrile) are designed to provide barrier protection and tactile
sensitivity to the wearer. These gloves are not designed for applications including prolonged, direct exposure to chemicals. Double
gloving with two gloves of different materials may be necessary if there is no chemical resistance data available for the chemicals you
are using. A thin glove used over heavier gloves provides increased tactile sensitivity.
• Verify that your gloves are compatible with your specific application, process and materials before using them.
• Change your gloves whenever they appear soiled or worn; be alert for permeation of your gloves by the chemicals you are using.
Change gloves immediately if permeation occurs.
• Be alert to any sensation of numbness, or tingling of your fingers or hands when working with chemicals. Remove gloves, wash
thoroughly with soap and water and seek medical attention for assistance.
*Latex gloves have been implicated in the exacerbation of latex allergies; powdered latex gloves have been shown to contain larger
amounts of the latex protein allergen than non-powdered latex gloves. If you suspect that you may have an allergy to latex, or have a
propensity for allergic reactions and skin rashes, avoid the use of latex gloves.
