ChemTek® gloves from Ansell provide the highest level of protection for handling hazardous chemicals in manufacturing and chemical processing environments. The ChemTek product line offers superior chemical protection for first responders and others who may be faced with potentially hazardous or unknown substances. The company’s glove line includes butyl gloves, which deliver the ketone resistance of natural rubber combined with better hydrocarbon resistance. Butyl gloves offer excellent dexterity and the highest permeation resistance to gas and chemical vapors of any glove materials currently on the market. They are appropriate for aggressive environments in which workers require protection against esters, ketones, strong oxidizing agents, and a wide range of chemicals considered particularly harsh. Butyl gloves are available in 14-, 20-, and 28-mil versions with either a rough or smooth finish. ChemTek gloves protect workers in maintenance, sampling, production, and HazMat operations within the chemical manufacturing, processing, and handling industries and others.
