Hello

Is it nitrile gloves, the stretchy blue ones, that are cellulose resistant.  I tend to use quite a bit of thinner to clean out airbrush/guns and clean pots etc. 

Cheers

Mike

Yes Mick Nitrile gloves

I tend to use the heavy duty ones sold to the motor trade for working on cars , they're a bit tougher than the ordinary ones and they're also useful for ..er..working on cars :-)

Have (had mercifully) a Box of robins egg blue ones.
 They are Useless to my needs. Laughable as Mechanics gloves and close to useless for airbrush work as well. Semi useful with rattle cans.  That fairly sums it up.
Mechanics versions of claimed Nitrile (as if) ... known to me as dark blue or black,  are better But not massively so.
 Also wayyy thicker /clumsier so they don't exactly allow a surgeons feel.

I've used thin, disposable polyethylene gloves with thin latex ones over them to make them stay putt. That's worked with some chemicals. I expect that would be ok for dope thinner, but I don't actually know.

Hi

Thanks ... I’ll have a look at the mechanics ones.  There’s some for 4.99 a pair which look robust enough.  It’s just for holding pots and airbrush bits whilst I wipe them down.

I’ve had the thin nitrile, vinyl and polythene ones in the past and none seem to be up to it.
Then there’s the various epoxy thinners/reducers which are different again.

I’ve always been very careful with ventilation and masks but less so with direct contact!

Cheers

Gosh, you worry me!  I have been using cellulose thinners for years spraying cars and models etc. and also to clean my hands of all kinds of things.  Have never worn gloves I don’t think.  I suppose a bit late now?

Monique, who introduced me to the gentleman seemed to think so - can’t remember who he is now.  I do have a bit more hair - on my head.

I once had a chemistry prof who looked like that, except scarier. I suppose it's not hard to look scarier than Mike Meyers. Rumor had it that benzene, or some other organic chemical, made him bald.

Gosh wonder if I look scary - that would be fun.  Could rent myself out on Halloween.

Sorry not sure who Mike Meyers is?
