Hi guys, not exactly 3rd World problems but was just wondering what gloves people wear for working and where from. Ive tried loads and they don't even seem to last a day! Advice welcome! Cheers, D.

The only time I use gloves is for handling coated glass. Blue latex (unpowdered). They are intended to be disposable.

We use Nitrile gloves from PEL https://www.preservationequipment.com/c ... ile+gloves and when using paints, stains or waxes we use these black ones from Lion https://lionpic.co.uk/p/35366/Black-Mam ... um-100-box

We find all of them to be pretty good and certainly not a throw away after one use. We also have cotton ones from PEL but don't use those so often.

Just use the disposable vinyl gloves from Lion, mainly when painting frames, changing Morso blades or any other dirty work and if the needs be, white cotton gloves for handling prints

Mostly same as above although I have a pair of kevlar gloves for changing the morso blades. i used some rubberised fabric gloves the first time, until I felt the sensation of the blade edge slowly slicing into my fingers. Not something I want to repeat, begginers mistake..

Much the same as above; cheap disposable vinyl gloves, ex lg, when painting/staining. White cotton purchased online when handling customers work and good quality safety gloves when handling/cutting glass.

You'll be pleased to learn that it's now considered bad form to wear cotton gloves when handling valuable works on paper. Why? Because even the slightest tear can snag on the fabric weave.
But it makes good theatre to be seen wearing them in front of the customer.
I know -annoying fact .. there's always one.

My hands are getting more sensitive to the adhesives in mounting films and laminates, as well as IPA, so now spend a fair proportion of the day in nitrile gloves. Currently favouring the type that are aimed at tatoo artists, black with a decent grip. They don't seem to mark most digital prints, or glass, and they greatly reduce the strain when carrying completed works, or packaged items - I'm not having to grip as hard, and this helps with the advancing years.

Cotton gloves for theatre, and really fragile fine art inkjet papers and prints, as well as for handling photographic film.

For glass there's a delicate balance between being thick enough to protect your hands from cuts, but thin enough to handle the glass, T square and cutter comfortably. I recommend these, from Brewer's paints, Painters L/weight PU Grip Gloves L/XL NL05502515. They're white, so you can see the dirt. I use them on my Steeltrak 2500 too!

I never wear gloves for handling glass - barring the coated stuff. And NEVER cotton gloves. Even the ones with rubber
knobbly bits. Thing is, it reduces the 'feel'. Only chain mail gloves such as butchers wear will protect against cuts.
Thing is, gloves give you a false sense of security with zero actual protection. Also you are more likely to have a sheet
slip though your fingers and slice your toes off. :o

Same thing applies with gloves and power tools.

We have brilliant Kevlar gloves that I use when I'm handling full sheets of glass - they were actually given to us by a customer who worked in a paper mill and had to work on the machines with the big guillotine blades. We also use the ones you can get from suppliers like this https://larsonjuhl.co.uk/glazing-produc ... count%3d18 that are designed for when handling the specialty glass that's available.
