recommended in applications where gloves are worn for a longer
period of time or exposed to greater stress and risks. The thicker
the glove material the greater the resistance to chemicals or
Nitrile Plumbers Gloves also have additional
chemical barrier properties that give them an advantage when
handling certain hazardous materials or chemicals.
