Chemical-resistant gloves are made of rubber polymers that withstand exposure to liquid chemicals such as acids, oils, and solvents. They are worn by workers who prepare or manufacture chemicals, apply coatings to raw materials, perform biomedical research, and work in oil and gas industries. Some gloves provide additional protection, including resistance to heat, cuts, impact, and cold. Antistatic chemical-resistant gloves are worn in manufacturing where static discharge is a concern, such as when applying chemical sprays and finishes or when installing wiring where arc flash is not a concern. Cold-condition gloves are used when handling cold items (such as frozen food) or when working in cold weather or cold environments.
