Cleanroom Gloves

Real Female Scientists Researching

All Safety Products provides a wide variety of Gloves for cleanroom use from suppliers such as TechNiGlove and in many materials:

  • Vinyl– dissipate static and are considered clean and inexpensive. Abrasion and acid-resistant, non-allergenic and has some antistatic properties. It is mostly suited for use in dry environments.
  • Natural Rubber Latex (NRL)– resists bases, acids, alcohols and diluted aqueous solutions of most types of chemicals. (In cases of latex sensitivity, nitrile, neoprene and PVC are good alternatives)
  • Nitrile and Sterile Nitrile– offers good protection against bases, oils, many solvents and esters, grease and animal fats. They also provide excellent resistance to snags, abrasions, punctures and cuts.
To control the concentration of particles or particulates to specified limits, environments are controlled by standards to personnel and products entering the cleanroom. To choose cleanroom gloves, one must understand that cleanrooms are classified according to the number and size of particles permitted per volume of air. Large numbers like “class 100” or “class 1000” refer to Federal Standard 209E (FS 209E), and denote the number of particles of size 0.5 µm or larger permitted per cubic foot of air.
