Laboratory gloves are used for following purposes:

  1. Safeguard Your Hand Skin

You work with various chemicals and other materials in a science laboratory. Some of these can be hazardous and cause harm to the skin of your hands. You may get infection and contamination if you don’t wear gloves.

  1. Avoid Stains

When you manage science lab equipment with bare hands, there is a risk that the substances or fluids in them could spill on your hands. They cannot only hurt your skin but also leave stains which may further cause burn or rashes. Gloves can help you prevent such incidents.

Remember that laboratory gloves can offer you enough protection only when you follow the best practices.

Each type of gloves has their own compatibility for different applications. For instance,

  • Nitrile gloves for chemicals and infectious materials.
  • Neoprene gloves for oils and solvents.
  • Rubber gloves for mild corrosive materials.
  • Coated fabric gloves for moderate concentrate chemicals.


Hope this helps!!
