"Latex" gloves that really work!

I have always hated putting on the latex gloves, can't feel crap, they tear easy, they just suck. Well my hands have been taking a beating lately and I tried wearing these "Gloveworks" Nitrate gloves, they are awesome! I have worn them all this morning pulling a car apart, wearing them while using masking tape, removing tiny bolts and clips, they hold up, I even removed them to take my break and will put the same pair back on. I highly recommend them!

Brian

Those look like the gloves Ed China wears on "wheeler dealers" You can actually wear them while masking? I have worn lots of different gloves,but never had any luck with masking tape.

Finding gloves you like is important, at least it is to me. Most of them I've tried will allow some masking tape work if they fit right. For me, regular latex works fine but the ones with some nitrile do resist solvent a little better. Glad you have found glove love!

Don't misunderstand, I wasn't doing any real masking. It was bull crap stuff but they seem to work amazingly well.

there are several different qualities and thickness of gloves..

the best ones are what doctors use for surgery.. talk about a tough glove..

MSA who makes respirators and other safety equipment made in the late 70s. some industrial high gauntlet gloves that resisted all kinds of solvents.. they were probably viton.. 25 bucks a pair.. mom had a pair for almost 10 years.. used them every day.. she loaned them to a work man who was doing some paint stripping as what he brought was melting.. the workman cut the fingers out of moms gloves.. he is lucky he left with his head on his shoulders..

they were black versions of these..

I used to use latex gloves but the poor resistance to solvents was a problem. I've switched to Ansell Touch N Tuff nitrile gloves and I've very happy with them. They may not be solvent-proof, but the last MUCH longer with lacquer thinner and carb cleaner than any latex gloves.

I think for the most part any nitrile glove will be a lot more stronger than Latex. I think they're only a couple dollars more too.

Who sells those?


I'm using HF's 7-mil nitrile gloves made by Hardy and I'm pretty happy with them. They out last the 5-mil gloves and some crap I got at Ace Hardware.
