Each coating has its qualities!

Anti-slip vulcanised synthetic rubber
  • Excellent abrasion and cut resistance
  • Three times the puncture resistance of latex
  • Good mechanical performance
  • Excellent resistance to oil, grease and hydrocarbons
  • Good resistance to acids, certain organic solvents, pesticides, oils and fuels
  • No latex proteins
  • Heat resistance (but no flame resistance)


  • Relatively rigid
  • Normally low tear resistance
  • No chemical resistance against ketones and some chlorinated hydrocarbons methylene chloride and trichloroethylene)


Natural rubber mainly from latex and the rubber tree
  • Very flexible and elastic
  • Good grip
  • Excellent resistance to tearing and bending
  • Good resistance to abrasion
  • Very robust
  • Waterproof
  • Protects against weak acids, caustics, alcohols and detergents
  • Protection viruses and bacteria


  • Poor chemical resistance against oils, greases, hydrocarbons and organic solvents
  • Proteins may cause allergies
Plastic that is microporous elastomer
  • Very flexible and elastic
  • No latex proteins
  • Clean – does not shed particles like other polymers
  • Good resistance to abrasion
  • Good resistance to oil
  • Does not harden in the cold
  • Does not soften in the heat
  • Excellent perspiration thanks to porous ventilation


  • Low chemical resistance
  • Poor resistance to hot water
Impermeable plastic
  • Flexible at even -20°C
  • Material softened by a plasticizer
  • Good electrical insulator
  • High chemical resistance


  • Low resistance to cuts, puncturing and heat
  • Disposable PVC gloves might have pinholes
  • Low resistance to solvents
Polychloroprene synthetic rubber
  • Flexible and soft like natural rubber
  • No latex proteins
  • Good abrasion and cut resistant
  • Chemical protection against acids, alcohols, fats, ketones, organic and inorganic solvents, oils, greases and petrochemicals
  • Heat resistant and flame resistant


  • Poor grip when wet
  • No chemical resistance against chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents
Synthetic rubber polymer for heavy chemical protection
  • Very elastic, even at low temperatures
  • Excellent chemical resistance against ketones (MEK, acetone) and acids
  • Low gas permeability


  • Limited grip
  • Limited dexterity
  • Poor mechanical resistance
  • Poor resistance to aliphatic hydrocarbons (hexane, diesel, gasoline), aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene, toluene, xylene) and halogenated solvents (chloroform and chlorobenzene)
Synthetic rubber polymer – the last resort
  • Protects where nothing else protects
  • Chemical protection against PCBs
  • Excellent chemical protection against chlorinated, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons


  • Limited grip
  • Limited dexterity
  • Not suitable for ketones, esters and nitro compounds
