Advantages and Disadvantages of Gloves
There are a variety of glove types available in the market today which are designed for use with specific chemicals and chemical families. Each type of glove has its own advantages and disadvantages and this should be considered carefully before use. The following table highlights the advantages and disadvantages of each type of gloves:

TypeAdvantagesDisadvantages Use Against
Natural Rubber (Latex)Low cost, good physical properties, dexterityPoor vs. oils, greases, organics frequently imported, may be poor qualityBases, alcohols, dilute water solutions; fair vs. aldehydes, ketones
Natural Rubber BlendsLow cost, dexterity, better chemical resistance than natural rubber vs. some chemicalsPhysical properties frequently inferior to natural rubberSame as natural rubber
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)Low cost, very good physical properties, medium cost, medium chemical resistancePlasticizers can be stripped; frequently imported may be poor qualityStrong acids and bases, salts, other water solutions, alcohols
NeopreneMedium cost, medium chemical resistance, medium physical propertiesN/AOxidizing acids, anilines, phenol, glycol ethers
NitrileLow cost, excellent physical properties, dexterity. Long service lifePoor vs. benzene, methylene chloride, trichloro- ethylene & many ketonesOils, greases, aliphatic chemicals, xylene, perchloroethylene, trichloroethane; fair vs. toluene
ButylSpecialty gloves, polar organicsExpensive, poor vs. hydrocarbons, & chlorinated solventsGlycol ethers, ketones, esters
Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA)Specialty glove, resists a very broad range of organics, good physical propertiesVery expensive, water sensitive, poor vs. light alcoholsAliphatics, aromatics, chlorinated solvents, ketones (except acetone), esters, ethers
Fluoroelastomer (Viton)Specialty glove, organic solventsExtremely expensive, poor physical properties, poor vs. some ketones, esters, aminesAromatics, chlorinated solvents, also Aliphatics and alcohols

Buying Tips
Factors to consider when selecting gloves are:
  • Resistance to physical damage such as tearing or abrasion.
  • The dexterity needed when the gloves are worn.
  • The extent of coverage required.
  • Specific hazards such as electricity or volatile organic chemicals (VOC).
  • Always inspect the glove for cuts or punctures prior to use To consider the risk of allergic sensitization when selecting rubber gloves rather than just choosing the lowest cost item available.
