The KLEENGUARD series by Kimberly-Clark covers high quality protective clothing for various operating conditions. KLEENGUARD A50 Ultra Garments are designed to protect the user from liquid aerosols, spray and light splashing where the risk of chemical exposure is defined as low risk. These garments with full-length zips are made from an engineered structure called SMS. The three layers of the fabric are made of polyolefin fibres, which deliver strength, durability and protection. All components are silicone free.
Laboratory gloves are part of the basic personal protective equipment. Heat/fire resistant gloves are available, as well as gloves for protection against chemical or mechanical risks. At Analytics-Shop-com you find nitrile gloves for optimal protection against chemicals, fats, acids and solvents. KIMTECH Science nitrile gloves by Kimberly-Clark are available in various sizes and bulk packs. Further, we offer CYRO gloves, latex gloves etc. from size S to L.
Depending on the work to be performed and chemicals used we advise different types and materials of gloves. The chemical protection of gloves is reserved according to EN374. It is of great importance to select the right glove which effectively protects against the chemicals used. In general, nitrile gloves protect very well against oil-based chemicals (solvents, oils, greases), while natural latex gloves are for water-based chemicals (acids and bases).
It should be noted also that the imbuing, penetrating the glove thus damaging the glove material, starts with the first contact between glove and chemical. Depending of the penetration times different protection levels are distinguished.
