The oldest liquid-proof glove material, natural rubber
excels at protecting the wearer from mild acids, alcohols,
bases and most diluted solutions of chemicals.
natural rubber gloves are commonly used in industrial
applications, for cleaning, and in food processing
and handling. They offer a high level of protection
against cuts, but are not recommended for use in oils.
Our examination latex gloves are offered in varied
thicknesses for high sensitivity or extra protection.
Gloves made of natural rubber latex can cause allergic
reactions in some individuals. If reactions occur,
discontinue use immediately, and consult a physician.
Choose a synthetic rubber, such as nitrile or vinyl,
as a substitute.
With a formulation that is unique to Summit Glove,
our Nitritech nitrile gloves are made from acrylonitrile-butadiene
rubber and contain no latex proteins. These gloves
are ideal for latex-sensitive individuals.
most popular product, nitrile gloves protect the wearer
from most solvents and oils, and are excellent for
abrasion, cut and puncture protection. However, they
are not recommended for use in ketones and a few organic
solvents. (For details, refer to Summit Glove Chemical
Resistant Glove Guide)
made from nitrile are available in four different
mil thicknesses as ambidextrous examination type,
and in hand specific styles, both lined and unlined.
Nitrile examination gloves are used in medical applications
by First Responders, medical personnel and laboratory
staff, and for limited splash protection in chemicals.
Heavier nitrile gloves are routinely used in manufacturing,
cleaning and the food processing industry.
Neoprene offers superior protection against oils,
acids, solvents and caustic chemicals, but is somewhat
less effective against abrasion and cuts than either
natural rubber or nitrile.

PVA gloves are very resistant to most chemicals and
ketones, but are not recommended for use in water
and alcohol. They protect well against snags, cuts,
punctures and abrasion.
Synthetic PVC gloves offer economical protection for
workers exposed to chemicals, fats, oils, abrasion
and punctures. Component materials comply with FDA
regulations for food contact in food service styles.
Disposable, economical protection for use in most
food service and industrial applications. Component
materials comply with FDA regulations for food contact.
Available in a variety of packaging options for the
food service industry.
Polyurethane coating on fine gauge knit gloves offers
superior dexterity and performs well in alcohols,
grease, animal fats, acids and bases, but is not recommended
for use in organic solvents. (Excellent parts handling
and assembly glove.)
Varied combinations of yarn blends increase machine
knit strength and durability, while still allowing
for worker dexterity. Often coated with rubber, nitrile
or other substances to improve grip and longevity.
Can be used in unsupported gloves for lining, and
for insulating properties.
One of the strongest of all fibers, this aramid offers
excellent cut protection and heat insulation, but
offers little protection from abrasion.
This cut resistant polyolefin fiber is offered for
use in food processing and industrial environments.
These gloves can be repeatedly laundered and bleached.
A highly cut resistant fiber yarn offering maximum
cut protection and a high level of flexibility. Our
polyurethane coated UHMWPE knit gloves are ideal
for assembly operations and sharp parts handling.
TEFLON® coating on our quilted oven mitts offers
protection with a thin fluorocarbon film that features
microbial and stain resistance, excellent cleanability,
and flame retardant properties.
Our PYROGUARDTM black oven mitts are flame retardant
and repel moisture, stains, and also offer vapor protection.
