What Type of Rubber Glove Should I Wear to Risk Contamination?admin
The risk of contaminating the material is the primary issue in considering which type of disposable rubber glove to use with our materials. The wrong choice could lead to cure inhibition and a waste of material, time and money. With years of use of common disposable gloves, we can conclude:
What Type of Rubber Glove Should I Wear?
Vinyl or Nitrile Gloves
These choices of disposable rubber gloves are widely recommended as the best for use as both materials. Vinyl or Nitrile Gloves will not interfere with or inhibit the cure of urethanes, silicones, Epoxies, Polyesters, Latex or other materials.
At Neill’s Materials we stock Nitrile gloves as have found these are the most flexible, fitting and tactile for use in comparison with Vinyl.
We recommend avoiding the use of Latex gloves when using these types of materials. The risk of contamination and inhibition is significant. In particular when working with Platinum/Addition cure Silicones it is important not to wear Latex gloves. Sulphur residue can inhibit the cure of the Silicone.
TIP: While Consumables are not the most costly part of any project, the right choice of disposable equipment can be vital to its success. It pays to do your research and ask questions. The Neill’s Materials technical support team are always on hand for guidance for our customers.
