Generally PVC gloves cannot resist the destructive influence of the majority of organic solvents by a long time exposure. If we do not have any better choice we can use the Universal gloves only under sever control in given conditions (concentration of the chemical, temperature, mechanical strain of the glove). The following table shows approximate time limits of safe use before the penetration of the chemical occurs.
Acetone less than 10 minutes
Benzene less than 10 minutes
Iso-propanol more than 10 minutes
Methyl iso-butyl ketone more tthan 10 minutes
Chloroprene less than 10 minutes
Toluene less than 10 minutes
Xylene less than 10 minutes
Ethyl Benzene more than 10 minutes
Ethylene Oxide more than 30 minutes
Dichloropropane more than 10 minutes
Styrene more than 10 minutes
Dimethyl Formamide more than 10 minutes
Heptane more than 30 minutes
Methyl Ethyl Ketone less than 10 minutes
Epichlorohydrin more than 10 minutes
Trichloropropane more than 30 minutes
DI-isopropylether more than 10 minutes
Warning!!! TETRAHYDROFURAN, CYCLOHEXANONE and CHLOROBENZENE are solvents of PVC destroying the PVC layer very fast !
