Table of chemical resistance

The above-mentioned simplified chart points out the very big variability of the chemical resistance of protective gloves to identical products; e.g. PVA-protective gloves (polyvinyl-alcohol) efficiently protect against trichlorethylene and toluene, whereas they dissolve in water.

As you can see on page 24 the permeation chart of chemicals issued by the manufacturer of protective gloves gives detailed information on their resistance.
