Rubber Latex Composition
The 87-950 Gauntlet Gloves are made from 100% pure latex with no fillers, are chlorinated and are 50% thicker than standard flocklined gloves. As a result, they provide excellent resistance to many ketones, salts, detergents, alcohols, alkalies and fats.
Textured for Better Grip
The Ansell 87-950 Gauntlets have an embossed lozenge finish that enables good grip in both wet and dry conditions. This texturing increases safety during manual handling and improves control for precision tasks. By enhancing gripping ability, these gloves reduce the amount of force needed to perform tasks, and this helps to minimise hand fatigue.
