BUTYL CHEMICAL PROTECTION GLOVESSoldier wearing butyl chemical protection gloves

Hand protection is the most important thing for men and women who work near hazardous toxic chemicals and biological or radiological threats. More importantly is having the proper chemical protection glove for the job, but this is assuming one can identify the suspect fluid.

If Hazardous, Aggresive Toxic Chemicals Are Suspected, then Butyl Should Be the Glove Choice

In most cases, safety officers know the chemical compounds their employees are exposed to, but for those in Hazmat, very often they cannot identify the fluids they're being exposed to.
Having the proper chemical-resistant glove becomes critical, and just as critical is the glove's ability to holdout - the ability to protect the hand from chemical break-through and degradation of the glove. If you had to select just one glove to encompass chemical threats, then butyl should be your choice.
Butyl gloves are commonly used in agriculture, pesticides, oil/gas, salons, emergency response, manufacturing, forensics, chemical mixing, medical research, laboratories, automotive and it has been the hand protection standard the US Armed Forces (USAF), General Services Administration (GSA),  Homeland Security (HSA), Department of Energy (DOE) and US Domestic Preparedness. These gloves are also commonly seen incorporated to protective encapsulated 'space' suits such as DuPont's Tychem® Series.

One Drop of a Chemical on an Improperly Chosen Glove Can Be Fatal!

Where there are Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) or Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs) threats crucial to personal health safety, select USA Made Guardian™ Butyl Protective Gloves.  In fact, to protect our valuable soldiers against biological hazards and chemical warfare agents, the United States Military has used over 14 million pairs of these butyl gloves over three wars so you can be assured that Guardian™ butyl gloves will keep your staff protected!

5-Mil Butyl Chemical Protection GlovesThink About the Health Consequences of Long Term Exposure

Butyl is a synthetic rubber, a copolymer of isobutylene with isoprene and it is highly resistant to many chemicals such as solvents, MEK, highly corrosive acids (nitric acid, sulfuric acid, skydrol, hydrofluoric acid and red-fuming nitric acid), strong bases, keytones, aldehydes, esters, acetone, alcohols, nitrocompounds, water vapor gases (chlorine gas or hydrogen cyanide), lithium, peroxide, rocket fuels,  concentrated alkali, mineral acids, aggressive cleaning agents and more. Butyl gloves also resist oxidation, ozone corrosion and abrasion, and remain flexible at low temperatures.

Conserve Those Single-Use Nitrile Gloves & Save!

Butyl outperforms the heaviest of industrial safety gloves and nothing matches its' permeation (hold-out or chemical seeps) and degradation (physical changes that happen to a glove). The reduced-mil style gloves are elastic, flexible and soft to wear and they look and feel like a single-use latex or nitrile glove, but be assured, butyl is a protective beast! In fact, one pair of butyl gloves can translate to using several thousand pairs of disposable nitrile gloves. You don't need to dispose butyl gloves after use - simply rinse clean and hang dry.

Butyl Glove Options

Dexterity is also an important factor in hand protection selections. Will you be handling small containers, test tubes, or larger bulky items?  Generally, higher resistance to chemical absorption and puncture tears is achieved with thicker gloves but they can be less flexible. Are you handling parts in the presence of fluids? Maybe a textured grip surface is needed? Guardian™ has a butyl glove for every scenario!
Here are some of Guardian's butyl selections:
