Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The Difference Between Type I and Type IV Allergies?

Type I: The most serious and the rarest form, Type I is an immediate and potentially life threatening reaction, not unlike the severe reaction some people have to bee stings. This form of Allergy is normally associated with latex proteins. Latex allergies can be acquired over time due to prolonged contact with latex products. Type IV: Also known as allergic contact dermatitis. This involves a delayed skin rash with blistering and oozing of the skin, and is usually attributed to the accelerators used in the processing of rubber products. We offer products that are manufactured without accelerators - further information can be supplied on request.

When Does a PPE Glove Become a Category 3 Glove for Chemical Protection?

According to the Personal Protective Equipment Directive (89/686/EC) any 'PPE providing only limited protection against chemical attack' is PPE of complex design, i.e. Category 3. Any glove that protects against 'cleaning materials of weak action and easily reversible effects (gloves affording protection against diluted detergent solutions, etc.)' are defined as simple design by the directive, i.e. Category 1. So, any glove that is intended to protect against anything other than the weakest of chemicals is a Category 3 glove.
