    I've been buying the HF blue 5 mil gloves for shop work & they last for a bit around oily/wrenching jobs but now looking at ebay(where there are many choices of weight) & also HF has a black 9mil glove thats a little more expensive. The blue cheapies will not take much solvent but I have heavier paint stripper type gloves for those few jobs. I do like the feel you keep with the cheapie gloves. Has anyone tried the 9 mil HF gloves & if so do they cause you to lose the feel quality? Do they last much longer? Obviously the trick is to have a balance between longer wear , feel & protection.:ear
    I'm not concerned with if they're sterile or allergy issues.

    I've been using cheap 5 mil gloves for a while . . . .I thought about moving up to thincker, but realized that I generally removed the gloves (scratch ass, go inside and pee, grab a beverage) before I destroyed em . . . . stronger gloves would simply be more expense for not much of a gain . . . .



    think about YOUR usage -- it may be similar

    A friend of mine (who does way more wrenching than me) tried a box of the black HF gloves and thought they lasted about the same as the blues - or if there was any difference, maybe a bit shorter. They also have less "feel". YMMV.

    I order 10-12 mil latex gloves. Yes they are more expensive, but they tend to last at least 2 days of constant use, where I blow through the cheap gloves in a box from anywhere local in sometimes minutes.

    Latex is a bit stronger than Nitrile.

    We keep a bottle of Gold Bond next to the box of gloves; a little sprinkle and they slide right back on like new.

    I made the mistake of ordering black gloves once. Cool and all, but I couldn't see when my hands were covered with filth before grabbing something I didn't want filthy.

    If I need anything more resistant to chemicals, I use cheap kitchen gloves from the grocery store.

    These are my favorites at the moment: http://www.microflex.com/Products/SG-375.aspx

    I have a pair of orange chemical resistant gloves from Walmart that work for items like paint remover. Too pricey for wrenching but thin enough to do other jobs & are good stuff.
    How does latex handle lacquer thinner when washing paint guns? Thin nitrile falls apart in a minute.

    I use either although prefer 9.
    Trick I learned from some techs at work is to wear two pair. One stays on underneath and you change out the outer one. This works with the thinner gloves that can tear due to use or, just from getting wiped off.

    We have tons of 4 mil gloves (blue nitrile) at work. They are pretty light duty and rip fairly easily. OK for light duty jobs.

    The best ones are 8 mil gloves for the heavy duty stuff.

    Still have the question on how well latex handles solvent-not paint stripper but lacquer thinner type stuff for limited exposure.

    Not sure on the solvent question but, my guess would be latex would go French pretty quickly!
    I use the black heavy duty nitrile gloves from harbor freight. I keep a little bottle of talc in my toolbox so they slide on and off easily. They stand up to a lot of abuse and when I'm done, I just take them off and lay them down with the palms facing so I keep them matched to the same hands and I can use one pair for several days unless I manage to tear them. The blue and purple ones just don't hold up.

    I was hung up on Nitrile "had to be black" looks cool and 7mil. By mistake I got some gay white laytex (blue dimond-Amazon) gloves. Guess I may be getting a little light on my feet :toney I wont ever go back to black nitrile . As mentioned it is also nice to see if they are dirty before you touch something you dont want ruined. Seems no matter how clean my hands are my sandwhich has finger prints on it ? Somene should make a cheese sandwhich handcleaner - seems those two things pull every bit of grime out of my fingers.

    I am a little low on Lacquer thinner but dipped a fingertip in a capfull, left it there for a while and it held up. Mind you them Latex I have here may be a touch better than the HFs.:wink:

    I liked the older black nitril/latex gloves that HF no longer sells. Since I had to go shopping for new version I started with a box of the 9 mil. Tight on the palm while still a little baggy on the fingers. tight enough for mild discomfort. Still not that strong. They can tear easy and swell with many strong chemicals. Also not happy with only a 50 pack.

    Last box, the light blue 5 mil. They fit better (same size). Not as restrictive. The thinner material acts like it is more durable to tears. I don't know how or why or even if it really is true. But I am doing better with the lighter ones. They are OK for incidental chemical contact, slightly better then the 9 mil version. But I would not be dunking my hands in nasty stuff with any of the gloves. Get real gloves for nasty work.

    Latex gloves usually hold up pretty well to acetone, ethanol, OK but not great to MEK, whereas Nitrile are pretty good with most petroleum based stuff, especially oil and grease. DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR ANY OF THAT. Get hurt on your own experiments, and other disclaimer stuff. :rofl

    I still use Latex for home wrenching, since I try not to go elbow deep in grease, and an oil change shouldn't get enough oil on your hands to wreck latex gloves instantly.

    Go cheap. You will tear through any disposable glove with something sharp, and they all get thrown away as soon as they are removed.

    ^^^ I dipped some "good brand" Latex and Nitrile into Acetone and both turned to mush within minutes.

    also contains chemical listing with glove type recommendation.

    Yes nitrile is poor against acetone.
