Neoprene gloves are the best choice for professionals in multiple fields and with specific needs.
Let’s take a closer look at this material and understand why neoprene gloves are particularly suitable for use in different situations and environments.
Neoprene: what is it, and what characterises it
Neoprene is the trade name of DuPont Performance Elastomer, a family of synthetic rubbers that you can also find under the name of Polychloroprene. It was invented in the 1930s as an excellent alternative to oil-resistant rubber.
This material is very flexible, which is why neoprene gloves have proven to be highly resistant to water, sun, chemicals, abrasions and punctures.
Furthermore, we feel it’s important to point out that the REFLEXX 101 neoprene and latex gloves have a light and comfortable fleece lining, for truly excellent protection against the elements described above.
Neoprene gloves: what are they for
Reusable neoprene and latex gloves are, without a doubt, work gloves capable of best protecting the hands of those who work in contact with chemicals, such as acids or caustic substances.
They are also often the safest choice for plumbers, electricians and mechanics.
Moreover, they are widely used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
That’s not all: neoprene and latex gloves offer truly excellent thermal protection against the coldest outdoor temperatures.
Personal Protective Equipment with specific requirements
Neoprene and latex gloves fall within the category of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) in compliance with EU directives, which set new requirements for users.
Specifically, EU Regulation 2016/425 contains the essential requirements that PPE gloves must have in order to be sold and used on the European market.
