Chemical challenge

As part of its chemical campaign, Marigold Industrial Ltd undertook research to identify the most common chemicals that businesses across Europe seek protection against.

As a result, the company is highlighting its G25B and G17K gloves as two key products from its extensive chemical-resistant range. The blue nitrile G25B is said to provide excellent protection against substances such as suplhuric and hydroflouric acids, petroleum ether, kerosene, hexane, and diesel, and, as such, is ideal for the automotive, manufacturing, assembly and printing industries, says Marigold.

Where more heavy-duty protection is required, the G17K (pictured) is described as ideal for those working with substances such as chromic, hydrochloric, nitric and sulphuric acids. Said to be manufactured using natural rubber latex, the longer and thicker gauntlet style not only provides excellent chemical resistance but also resistance against tears, making it ideal for use in heavy industry, assembly and maintenance areas.
