Metal industry : Suitable gloves in good condition
Working with unsuitable or porous gloves, or with gloves that are too short or in poor condition, is worse than working with your bare hands: chemicals can get inside the glove and attack your skin. Generally, it is better to wear long-sleeved gloves to protect your wrists. Nitrile gloves are resistant to many chemicals including cutting fluids and are also comfortable. Surgical latex gloves are not suitable for mechanical applications because they can easily tear and be punctured.
