    What are everyone's favorite most comfortable chemical resistant gloves they are using during the applications.

    I typically use the 15 mil gloves from Gemplers but there has to be something better than these. What you working with???

    I get mixed answers on this... Are the long gloves required or can we use the wrist high disposable nitrile gloves?

    What does the PPE label tell you? That's what we follow, guy

    "chemical resistant protective gloves" No label I have read says it has to be up to my forearm. I guess it's just standard procedure for the tall gloves.

    Really?!?!? No one has got some nice gloves that they like a whole lot? I have searched everywhere I can think of to find something more comfortable.

    Bummed.

    I think you can wear a cotton or polyester liner inside your gloves. Rinse them out and let them dry every night. Need several to give them time enough to dry.
