Ansell Industrial Healthcare has introduced a comprehensive glove selection guide designed to assist industrial safety professionals with ensuring safety by equipping workers with the most appropriate industrial gloves.
According to Ansell, there isn’t a single glove material that provides resistance to all chemicals since different protective materials react differently when in contact with specific chemicals.
With most industries often using different chemicals, it is critical that workers are issued with hand protection that will provide significantly high levels of safety for their work environment.
Ansell’s glove selection guide includes information on commonly used chemicals and specific glove materials that are appropriate for maximum resistance to permeation.
The chart includes CAS registry’s unique numerical identifiers for chemical elements, compounds, polymers, biological sequences, mixtures and alloys. CAS (Chemical Abstracts Service) is a division of the American Chemical Society.
The data and recommendations contained in Ansell’s glove selection guide are based on the results of laboratory tests, and reflect the best judgement of Ansell in the light of data available at the time of preparation. The recommendations are purely advisory.
Ansell’s Head of Marketing, Mitchell Mackey says that the information is intended to guide and inform qualified professionals engaged in ensuring safety in the workplace.
