If you're a professional sprayer, paint shop technician or decorator, you know it's essential to wear the right disposable gloves for every job. But different tasks call for different levels of protection, depending on the chemicals that you're using. With so many gloves on the market, it can be hard to know which to choose and where to find true painters gloves.
Here's a quick guide to the types of gloves that are suitable for painters, based on their comfort, fingertip sensitivity and suitability to specific jobs.
Check out our quick video on the difference between Nitrile Black, Blue and Latex White gloves.
Nitrile Gloves are BPA free, Latex-free, Phthalate free, Vinyl Free, MBT free and often powder free.
Yes, Nitrile gloves are waterproof. Our nitrile gloves also have strong chemical resistance. Nitrile is derived from rubber so it is naturally waterproof.
Nitrile gloves last a long time, however like any natural product they will eventually degrade. To ensure your box of nitrile gloves lasts its lifetime, make sure that you store them out of direct sunlight, and out of the heat.
Nitrile disposable gloves do biodegrade into a compostable format. . However, they do take longer to break down then latex disposable gloves.
Nitrile Gloves protect the wearer's hands. The nitrile material keeps the wears hands safe from any contamination, and they also stop the user from contaminating any item or surface that they are touching. Nitrile is waterproof, greaseproof, oil proof and most importantly, chemical resistant to a range of common chemicals and substances. Nitrile gloves are also commonly used in the medical industry due to their high puncture resistance, and dexterous strength.
It is important to remember nothing is impermeable forever. Nitrile material does have a higher chemical resistance rate than compared to latex material, although some chemicals will eventually pass through, especially strong grade chemicals. However, for an everyday work glove, nitrile gloves are a good choice for hand protection against common chemicals.
You can get a good example of how nitrile gloves deform when exposed to chemicals by watching our video:
Nitrile is derived from rubber trees. The rubber is processed until it turns into Nitrile Material.
These thin disposable gloves are designed for the medical industry, but they also have their place in the paint shop or home decorating kit. They are best suited to water-based applications as they tear easily and have low chemical resistance, so offer little protection.
Nitrile gloves come in various colours and thicknesses. They are a popular choice because they provide a reliable barrier to paints and organic solvents and offer value for money. Blue nitrile gloves are designed for mechanics, so they are a little thicker than white medical gloves and can withstand handling tools, oils, acids, solvents and other chemicals. They are general use disposable gloves that are suitable for tasks such as sanding, compounding and polishing.
Look for gloves that have the same qualities as white gloves, plus:
