Strong organic solvents can be irritating to the skin, respiratory tract, and conjunctiva of the eyes. Direct contact with hands may lead to skin corrosion and even toxic reactions. Strong organic solvents can deteriorate commonly used chemical-resistant glove materials such as nitrile, PVC, and latex. However, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) is chemically inert to aromatic and chlorinated solvents.
LANON PVAX1 gloves provide a solution to protect hands from the aforementioned chemicals and hazards.
1. Class A chemical-resistant gloves
LANON PVAX1 offers excellent protective performance against ketones, nitriles, chlorinated paraffins, aromatic hydrocarbons, amines, heterocyclic ether compounds, and esters. PVA gloves withstand a breakthrough time of at least 30 minutes.
Type A – 30 minutes (level 2) against a minimum of 6 test chemicals
Type B – 30 minutes (level 2) against a minimum of 3 test chemicals
Type C – 10 minutes (level 1) against a minimum of 1 test chemical
2. Longer lifespan
When in contact with solvents like acetone, ethyl acetate, toluene, and acetonitrile, the breakthrough time of PVA is 15 times longer than that of materials like latex, nitrile, and PVC. PVA gloves are more durable compared to commonly used chemical-resistant gloves in strong solvents.
PVA gloves weigh approximately half as much as neoprene-coated gloves.
4. Easier to manipulate and less tiring to wear
The comfortable cotton lining inside keeps hands dry and cool. The ergonomic glove design offers excellent flexibility, dexterity, and comfort.
Applications of PVAX1
- Metal processing
- Electronic appliances
- Life science
- Lab equipment cleaning
- Fuel transferring
Note: Contacting with water, water-based solutions, or using in high humidity environments will greatly decrease chemical resistance.
