Recommended gloves for spraying

I'm looking to buy new gloves for our spray techs. We've done some research but there are so many options that we have no idea what to go with. We want something more durable than nitrile. Any suggestions?

You do know that nitrile comes in different thicknesses, right? I use 9 mil nitrile gloves when working on my car, and re-use them a lot. The 5 mil gloves hardly last me a minute, and the 7 mil, not that much longer.

Just remember to train your guys to never use their mouths when re-inflating a used glove. Shake it down, twist the hole shut, and squeeze down the air trapped in the palm to inflate the fingers. If you can't get a finger to inflate, there's probably a hole.

We do have nitrile in different thicknesses that our guys have been using. We want to get something more durable than what the nitrile provides.

HD nitrile less than $3 a pair. I usually use them about 3 days in a row. Yeah by then getting a little rank. But heck if I used one pair a day it's $3 ! I think that's an ok expense for what apps bring in in my opinion.

Are your techs pulling hose or doing ride on? I don't wear gloves when applying with my ride on. Only when I load.
