Polyco Optima Rubber Chemical Utility Gloves

Rubber gloves are a widely used form of protection across a broad range of industries including catering, hospitality, industrial cleaning and chemical processing, but many are constructed from low budget materials and get smelly and dirty after multiple uses. Constructed from 100% natural rubber and treated with anti-fungal and bacterio-static agents, the Polyco Optimo Chemical Utility Gloves are certified to the latest European standards for protection against mechanical hazards and a wide range of domestic/industrial chemicals.
