Atlas Protective Products, a division of Accent Industries Ltd, offers Starfish™ Plus range of double-dipped and supported PVC Gloves. These gloves, lined with interlock-knit cotton, have a slip resistant surface and thick coating, thereby providing good abrasion resistance and grip in addition to oil and chemical resistance.
These are available in lengths of 30, 35, 41 cm and a unique 66 cm range, and provide protection to the full arm. All PVC Gloves are supported since use of unsupported PVC means direct prolonged skin contact with PVC, which presents a lot of hazards as highlighted below.
