Types and functions of working gloves How to use working gloves

Labor protection gloves are labor protection gloves. They are the oldest kind of gloves known to people. They are not easy to be damaged, have a long service life and delicate processing. Common labor protection gloves include insulating gloves, acid and alkali resistant gloves, welder gloves, anti-vibration gloves, anti-static gloves, dust-free gloves, etc. No matter which kind of gloves you use, you should check them regularly. If damage is found, it should be replaced in time.
Types and functions of labor protection gloves
1. Insulated gloves for live work
refers to when workers perform live work on electrical equipment with an AC voltage of 10 kV and below (or DC electrical equipment with corresponding voltage levels), An insulating glove worn on the hand for electrical insulation. The product model, dimensions and technical requirements must comply with the “General Technical Requirements for Insulated Gloves for Live Working”.
Gloves must have good electrical insulation properties. At the same time, it also needs good tensile strength and elongation at break, as well as puncture resistance, aging resistance, flame resistance and low temperature resistance.

2. Acid and alkali resistant gloves
is a protective product to prevent acid and alkali damage to the hands, and its quality should comply with “acid (alkali) resistance” “Gloves” regulations. Gloves are not allowed to have defects such as frost, brittleness, stickiness and breakage. The non-leakage of gloves means that it must be airtight, and no air leakage is allowed under a certain pressure.
This kind of gloves can be divided into rubber acid and alkali resistant gloves, latex acid and alkali resistant gloves, plastic acid and alkali resistant gloves, plastic acid and alkali resistant gloves and so on.
Waterproof gloves and anti-toxic gloves can be replaced by acid and alkali resistant gloves.
Three. Oil resistant gloves
These products are made of materials such as nitrile rubber, chloroprene or polyurethane to protect the hand skin from the stimulation of oily substances and cause various skin diseases, such as acute Dermatitis, acne, folliculitis, dry skin, chapped skin, hyperpigmentation, and nail changes.
Four. Welder’s gloves
are personal protective equipment to protect hands from high temperature, molten metal, and sparks during welding. It is made of cow, swine tamarin or two-layer leather, and is divided into two-finger, three-finger and five-finger type according to different finger types. Welder gloves have strict appearance requirements. The first-class product requires the leather body to be uniform in thickness, plump, soft and elastic, with fine, uniform, firm, uniform color depth, and non-greasy. Second grade: The leather body lacks full elasticity, the leather surface is thick, and the color is slightly shaded.
V. Vibration-proof gloves
Used to prevent vibration-induced occupational diseases “white fingers” when using hand-held vibration tools (such as chainsaws, rock drills, etc.) in forestry, mining, construction, transportation and other sectors Disease” protective equipment. In the structure of anti-vibration gloves, a certain thickness of foam, latex, and air interlayer are added to the palm surface to absorb vibration. The thicker the liner, the more air it contains, and the better the damping effect. But when the palm or finger surface is too thick, it will easily affect the operation.
6. Fire-resistant and flame-retardant gloves
The traditional fire-resistant and flame-retardant gloves are made of asbestos materials. They are divided into two-finger and five-finger styles. There are three sizes of large, medium and small. Because asbestos fiber is irritating to human skin, it has been rarely used. Generally, flame-retardant canvas or other flame-retardant fabrics are used to make fire-resistant and flame-retardant gloves, which are suitable for smelting furnace front workers or other furnace work types.
Seven. Anti-static gloves
It is composed of fabric containing conductive fibers. The other is woven gloves made of long-fiber elastic acrylic fiber, and then glued with polyurethane resin on the palm part, or glued with polyurethane resin on the fingertip part or a polyethylene coating on the surface of the glove. [1]
Gloves with conductive fibers make the static electricity accumulated on the hands quickly disappear. Gloves coated with polyurethane or polyethylene are mainly not easy to generate dust and static electricity. These products are mainly used in the assembly of low-current, precision instruments, product inspection, electronics industry, printing, and inspection work in various research institutions.
8. Dust-free gloves
are made of natural rubber, which can prevent the discharge of human fingers during the production process. It can prevent the static electricity of the human body from damaging the product during the production process. The product is not contaminated and affected by residues, oil stains, dust and sweat on the fingers during the production process, and effectively protects the product. Most clean rooms use polyvinyl chloride (PVC) gloves.
How to use labor protection gloves
We all know that labor protection gloves are a kind of equipment used to protect our hands. You may ask: Why are they called labor protection gloves? Does it have functions that other gloves do not have? Yes, it can be worthy of this name because it has special protective functions that other ordinary gloves do not have. Various protective gloves are used in different places because of their different functions. Because of its special performance, when we use it, we should take corresponding protective measures, otherwise it will not have the protective function it should have, and it is no different from other ordinary gloves. Because the protective characteristics are very important to it, we should pay attention to the following aspects when purchasing and using it:
1. We should choose the gloves that suit us according to the size of our hands: we cannot choose too small Gloves, because if we choose gloves that are smaller than our hands, when we wear them, we will feel that our hands are very tight, and it is not conducive to the blood circulation in our hands; but we cannot choose gloves that are too large. If the gloves are too big, we will feel quite inflexible when we work, and the gloves will easily fall from our hands.
2. We should choose the gloves that suit us according to our working environment. Different gloves have different protective effects. Only by choosing them according to the special circumstances encountered in their work environment can they avoid unnecessary danger.
3. No matter what kind of gloves you are using, you should do a fairly detailed inspection. Once you find that it is damaged, you should replace it immediately. If you find that it is damaged, but are not willing to replace it, you should put on other gauze gloves or leather gloves before it can be used normally.
4. If you choose those gloves made of synthetic rubber, the color should be very uniform, and the palm should be thicker, but the thickness of the other parts should be the same. And its surface should be relatively smooth. The most important thing is that there should be no damage to the top of this glove, otherwise it can no longer be used.
5. If you choose those gloves made of rubber, then you should not allow them to come into contact with acids and other substances for a long time. At the same time, you should be more careful not to let such sharp objects come into contact with them.
6. No matter what kind of gloves you are using, you should check them regularly. If damage is found, you should take corresponding measures.
7. Put the cuffs of your clothes into your mouth during operation to prevent accidents.
8. After use, the internal and external dirt should be wiped clean. After it is dry, sprinkle with talcum powder and place it flat to prevent damage. Do not place it on the ground.
9. During transportation and storage, do not contact with oleic acid, alkali or other corrosive substances, and be away from the heat source 1M away, and store in a dry and ventilated warehouse of -15 to 30 degrees, and a relative humidity of 50 to 80%. .
10. A retest of the withstand voltage performance must be performed every 6 months. The lighter weight and the provision of a wide range of sizes increase its flexibility; the textured surface helps to hold the object tightly; the cotton knit lining , The spacious cuffs give people who work in higher temperature environments more comfortable.
