How to Buy Chemical and Liquid Resistant Gloves

Selecting the right chemical glove depends on the specific work conditions, processes, chemical types and duration of the chemical
exposure. Magid® provides a complete line of chemical resistant gloves with materials, constructions and features for every application. This section includes a detailed chart that outlines the specific permeation and degradation characteristics for each material.

 





Glove materials

   


Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

• Cost-effective, synthetic thermoplastic polymer
• Good resistance to abrasion, resins, glues, aqueous solutions and alcohols
• Maintains flexibility in cold temperatures
