Materials Used to Manufacture Delta Plus VE801 Chemical Safety Gloves

  • Supportive Coating: Nitrile (100%)
  • Flocking Material: Cotton (100%)

Are These Gloves Suitable for Food Contact?

These gloves are not certified for food contact. For a similar glove with similar chemical resistance and food contact certification, we recommend Portwest A810 Nitrosafe Chemical-Resistant Gauntlet Gloves.

What Are the Benefits of a Nitrile Coated Safety Glove?

As a coating, nitrile is incredibly flexible. It provides excellent resistance to oil, fuel and chemicals whilst remaining relatively thin and inobtrusive. Nitrile is used as a protective coating in gloves because it matches the pliability of latex and excels in wet, damp and liquid exposed environments due to its incredible ability at "sucking up" harmful moisture.

How Do I Wash My Gloves?

Washing couldn't be easier. In order to avoid contamination, we advise you rinse any harmful residue from the protective nitrile coating with hot, soapy water before doing the same to the interior of the glove. We do not recommend you use a washing machine as shrinkage and contamination can be an issue.
