Delta Plus
 

Chemical gloves search engine

Choosing a glove offering protection for any application is a complicated process. In order to respond to the various issues, Delta Plus offers a wide range of protective gloves designed using different materials (Latex, Nitrile, Neoprene, PVC), which, by nature, have specific behaviour vis-à vis a chemical product.

Before any searching for any products, ask yourself a few questions. They will guide you through choosing a glove for protection against chemical risks:

  • The nature and characteristics of the products handled. For this, help yourself to:
    • The Safety Data Sheet provided by the chemical manufacturer will help you identify the family
    • The CAS number of the substance used written on the product
  • LThe type of contact with chemical products (immersion, splashing)
  • The length of time you will wear the gloves
  • The skills required
  • Factors that could degrade the gloves (associated mechanical risk, electrical, thermal...)
  • The surface condition of objects to be manipulated (slippery objects?)
  • Individual characteristics of the operator (hand size, allergies to certain substances?)

Once this analysis is done, you are ready to use the search engine. A colour code will guide you through your choices and enable you to choose the product best suited to your environment.

Permeation (tested as per standard EN374-3 or EN16523)

Process by which a chemical product diffuses through the material of a protective glove, by continuous contact, on a molecular level.

The EN ISO version of standard 374-1, introduces the concept of three types of protection against the permeation of chemicals:
- Type A: The glove gives a performance index to permeation at least equal to 2 for 6 chemical test substances taken from the list of chemicals specified in the standard.
- Type B: The glove gives a performance index to permeation at least equal to 2 for 3 chemical test substances taken from the list of chemicals specified in the standard.
- Type C: The glove gives a performance index to permeation at least equal to 1 for 1 chemical test substances taken from the list of chemicals specified in the standard.

Warning: The data contained in this chemical gloves search engine is based on laboratory tests results on the palm of the glove or on extrapolations of such tests. These tests were conducted using standard test methods that may not correspond to the conditions of use on the site. Consequently, and where Delta Plus has no knowledge or control over the conditions of use of their products, these recommendations are indicative only and may not incur their liability.
