gloves Chemical Protective Gloves Set:

The glove set consists of an outer glove to provide chemical protection and an inner glove to assist in absorption of perspiration. The outer five-finger glove is made of an impermeable, unsupported, black, butyl rubber. The inner thin white cotton glove can be worn on either hand. The glove set is worn to afford hand protection against nerve and blister agent liquids and vapors. The black, outer glove gives protection against chemical agent vapors, aerosols, and small droplets for a minimum of 14 days, starting with the first day of wear. Upon contamination, the glove set provides at least 6 hours of protection from agent penetration before they must be decontaminated.

Depending on the agent, levels of protection may vary from mask only, to full chemical protective suit. Currently the military uses the following:

· Protective Mask with filters for military chemical agents. Hood to cover head and shoulders.

· Chemical Protective suit with scotch-guard like fabric and internal layer of activated charcoal to absorb agent

· Gloves and overboots of butyl rubber.

· Butyl rubber apron. (Medical personnel during decontamination.)
