I am interested to know what other people wear?

I have some thin rubberised gloves ( Ansell from Screwfix) that are good, but see mechanics wearing what look like surgical gloves. Those I have tried from Machine Mart disintegrate upon touching anything remotely sharp.

Just interested what works for others - I don't mind dirty hands/nails up to a point but my work demands otherwise in terms of presentation.

Hi Mark

I am the same, I hate having to scrub my nails, so firstly I use barrier cream, I bought a tub from a glass-fibre supplier years ago, itís not the water base version, itís a pinkie colour. I am running out and canít seem to find it anymore, so if anyone has come across it let me know.

I make sure it up my arms and under my nails, I do get very messy.  Then for general work I use http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/car-accessories/car-maintenance-accessories/hygiene-and-protection/latex-and-nitrile-gloves/?543771020&0&cc5_859 although I get through at least 3 pairs a day, but theyíre much better than latex, plus I wear them tight.

Then for more heavy duty, bought some thick nitrile gloves with a cloth inside from Lidl, I think they were about £2.5 a pair.

I use powdered latex gloves as much as I can. They are skin tight and fairly abrasion resistant (but hate wire brushes)

They do not like petrol, paraffin or white spirit but good with acetone, paints, light oil and grease. I go through a pair every 1 - 2 hrs roughly  (cost 6 euros/100 at Metro)

Having said that, if I am doing anything delicate , using masking tape or it is very warm, I don't use anything ....and take the risk

Aldi builders gloves, rubber coated fabric or nothing, £2.99 for three pairs. Those latex and nitrile gloves seem to last about 10 minutes .... if I am lucky!!

Andy,
I think it's a case of "you get what you pay for" I paid about £12 for a box of nitrile gloves about 6 months ago and to date I haven't had one split, whereas the powdered latex ones often split as I was pulling them on!

I have used Bodyguard Vinyl gloves (100 for £4.49 delivered) for a while now and find them not particular intrusive in terms of feel, but do last a reasonable time (i.e. half/full  day depending on what I am doing) and fairly resistant to chemicals such as thinners etc. Originally I did have an issue with some splitting on me and it is important not to get this sort of glove which is slightly too tight, you want them to just fit without any significant stretch.

The ones I bought recently

Aren't the gloves which fall to pieces, designed to do so in the presence of perspiration, to force a change in order to prevent dermatitis?

No they fall to pieces due to petrol etc. If working with petrol for cleaning down I use a pair or cheap (£6 per box 100) vinyl gloves over the nitryl blue ones (£6 per box). These are getting better but I still find they split across the palm a lot. I must get through a few boxes in the year. Always carry several pairs in the car tool kit as well which need replacing from time to time. I have given up on the latex ones preferring the nitrile (doubled up if working on areas like suspension).

I also get through boxes of feeble gloves - "decorator grade" I suppose.  I'd thought about the better ones mechanics have but what I like about frequent glove changes is that you get back to clean again.  Sweat is another issue, when painting I get a couple of wears out of each pair but cycle them to dry out.

An interesting thread and I will give some tougher ones a go...

I used about 4 pairs of Nitrile gloves yesterday cleaning up under the bonnet of a lady friends'  BMW MIni, it was filthy and needed wiping down with white spirit to get rid of the grease, so it was pretty tough work, only one Nitrile glove was damaged after catching on a clip, all the others were still in good condition, normally any gloves I'd used previously would have been knackered, in fact these were in so good a condition still that I washed them out, hung them out to dry, and they're now ready for re-use Grin

Read a good US post today on winding your own small compression srings by using a slow speed electric drill and welding wire wrapped round a mandrel. I was just thinking "don't try this at home" when I read the words of wisdom: use welding gloves - if you use thin gloves, call the ambulance before you start so that they will arrive in time to stop the bleeding.

Thought I'd share that one with you.
