Labor protection gloves, used to protect the safety of the user's hands, are one of the personal protective equipment.
Because of different application environments, when using labor protection gloves, you need to choose according to the corresponding function. However, with so many labor protection gloves on the market, how should we divide it?
Types of labor insurance gloves and how to divide them
1. Insulating gloves for live working
Made of rubber, it not only has good electrical insulation properties, but also has good tensile lightness and pulling depth rate, as well as puncture resistance, aging resistance, flame resistance and low temperature resistance. This type of labor protection gloves, regardless of model, size, and technical requirements must meet the requirements of the "General Technical Requirements for Insulated Gloves for Live Work". Mainly used in the working environment with AC voltage of 10 kV and below.
2. Acid and alkali resistant gloves
It can be made of rubber, latex, plastic and dipping materials, which has a certain protective effect on acid and alkali, but it needs to meet the requirements of "acid (alkali) resistant gloves".
When using this type of labor protection gloves, you need to check whether the gloves have defects such as blooming, brittleness, stickiness, and breakage. It is necessary to ensure the air tightness of the gloves and there will be no air leakage under a certain pressure.
Three, oil resistant gloves
Made of materials such as nitrile rubber, chloroprene or polyurethane, it is used to protect the skin of the hands from the irritation of oily substances and avoid acute dermatitis, dry skin, chapped skin, pigmentation, nail changes and other skin diseases.
Four, welder gloves
It is made of cow, pig marmoset leather or two-layer leather, and can be divided into two-finger, three-finger and five-finger type according to the finger type. It protects hands when facing high temperature, molten metal, and sparks.
This type of labor protection gloves have stricter requirements on appearance. For example, first-class products require the leather body to be uniform in thickness, plump, soft and elastic, and the plush on the leather surface needs to be meticulous, uniform, firm, and consistent in color. If the leather body lacks full elasticity, the leather surface is thick, and the color is slightly shaded, then it is a second-class product.
Five, anti-vibration gloves
Based on yarn gloves and leather gloves, a certain thickness of foam plastic, latex, and air interlayer synthetic rubber or foam rubber are added to the palm of the glove to absorb vibration. It is mainly used in industries with contact vibration, such as forestry, mining, construction, transportation and other industries, to prevent vibration-induced occupational diseases caused by vibration.
For this type of labor protection gloves, the anti-vibration effect and flexibility are inversely proportional. Because the thicker the liner, the greater the amount of air in contact, the better the anti-vibration effect. However, the greater the thickness of the palm and finger surfaces, the greater the impact on operation.
Six, fire-resistant and flame-retardant gloves
Traditional fire-resistant and flame-retardant gloves are made of asbestos materials and are divided into two-finger and five-finger models, with three sizes of large, medium and small. However, because asbestos fibers are irritating to human skin, they are rarely used now. The current fire-resistant and flame-retardant gloves are generally made of flame-retardant canvas or other fire-resistant and flame-retardant fabrics, and are generally used in smelting furnaces or other furnace work types.
Seven, anti-static gloves
It is made of special anti-static tape fabric. The base material is made of tape and conductive fiber. It has excellent elasticity and anti-static properties. It can avoid the damage of the product caused by static electricity generated by the human body. It is suitable for the electronics industry and semiconductors. , Widely used in dust-free workshops and daily life.
When working, people need to make good use of various personal protective equipment to better protect themselves. Therefore, I hope that the above sharing of labor protection gloves will be helpful to everyone.
