Abstract
The breakthrough times of seven commonly used herbicides through various commercially available protective gloves were determined. Glove samples were challenged with the concentrated herbicide formulations using ASTM Test Method F-739. Based solely on chemical resistance data, the specialty laminate (Silver Shield, 4H) afforded workers the most protection, the longest breakthrough time, against all seven herbicides tested. Nitrile and butyl gloves, based on chemical permeation and chemical degradation, were protective against AATrex-4L (1912249), Dual-8E (51218452), Lasso Micro-Tech (15972608), Sencor-DF (21087649), and Gramoxone-Extra (4685147). However, they were not protective against Judge (15972608) or Treflan-MTF (1582098). Nitrile and butyl glove materials were wrinkled and distorted after 1 hour exposures to Treflan MTF or Judge. The authors note that wrinkled or distorted gloves should be taken as an indicator of a chemical incompatibility between the herbicide and the glove material.
