PROTECTIVE CLOTHING:
Gloves: Nitrile/Neoprene/PVC/Natural Rubber (permeation breakthrough not detected during 6 hr test)
These glove recommendations should not be used as the absolute basis for glove selection. Actual in-use conditions may vary glove performance from the controlled conditions of laboratory tests. Factors such as concentration and temperature, glove thickness and glove reuse, may affect performance. Other glove requirements, such as length, dexterity, cut, abrasion, puncture and snag resistance, or glove grip need to be considered in making your final selection.
Other: Not specified.
