Permeation of a metalworking fluid through a latex glove under field use conditions.
Xu W; Que Hee SS
Bull Environ Contam Toxicol 2010 Jan; 84(1):5-7
Whole glove testing for a metalworking fluid (MWF) in the field was performed for the first time. Green latex gloves used in a machine shop were exposed for 20 min to MWF. The permeated amount (1.0 +/- 0.5 microg/cm(2)) was higher than the threshold (0.25 microg/cm(2)) for the ASTM F739-99a closed-loop normalized breakthrough time.
