Glove Compatibility

Glove Chemical Compatibility Chart

Environmental conditions, exposure times, chemical concentrations, and residues all affect glove performance. We advise that you conduct onsite testing of all gloves to help determine safe usage parameters and not rely solely on compatibility charts. This chart's chemical resistance is based on 5-mil gloves, which affects compatibility. It is your responsibility to test your product and chemical together ensure compatibility under your unique circumstances.

Please Note: these charts are for general reference only. We have aggregated this data from dozens of sources and any single piece of data cannot be guaranteed.
