Chemical-resistant gloves protect against damage from hazardous and harmful chemicals. They are comfortable gloves that offer a good grip and high tactile sensitivity. Butyl gloves resist oxidizing agents, esters, ketones and highly corrosive acids. Fluoroelastomer gloves resist hydrocarbons, alcohol and chlorine. Nitrile, which is the synthetic version of natural latex rubber, resists oil, grease, xylene and hydrocarbons.
