Sophisticated (or KSH) gloves – this is the most reliable protection of hands when working with various kinds of acids, alkalis and salts. A pair of such gloves should be each who somehow faces aggressive chemicals. Today we will discuss KSHS 1-type gloves.
Let’s start with the fact that these gloves are of two types that are called: Gloves KSHC Type 1 and Gloves KSHS Type 2. Their main difference is the thickness of the protective layer. The micro-gravity of the first type gloves have a thickness twice as much as the second (from 0.6 to 1.2 millimeters). This allows them to withstand the effects of solutions with acid concentration and alkalis to 70%. However, their high density does the movement of the hand, which is why they are intended only for rough work. Technical gloves are more reliable than ordinary rubber (household or medical). They give an increased level of protection and are able to withstand higher physical exertion. This is the necessary quality, because if the protective layer breaks through, the dangerous compounds can enter the skin of a person.
They are made from latex. In its properties, this material is similar to rubber, but it is best suited for personal protective equipment. Latex more damage, which gives a greater degree of comfort, and is still completely natural, which allows you to reduce negative consequences from long-term contact with the skin to a minimum. Description tells us that the recommended temperature for the operation of gloves is from 10 to 35 degrees. At the exit of these frames, they, of course, will still be suitable for use, but their protective indicators or levels of convenience can be reduced.
The term of operation of gloves is unlimited, however, with direct contact with acids, they can only be used for four hours. This is a very high indicator for the means of personal protection of the hands of the budget class.
KSHS gloves of the first type are only three sizes. The first size is designed for clamping hands in 110 millimeters, the second – by 120 and the third – at 130. A small selection of sizes is related to the fact that 1-ey type gloves are intended for rough work. Therefore, they are not designed for a high degree of comfort or mobility of hands.
For comparison, the same gloves of the 2nd type are seven sizes and give greater hand pick-up variability to ensure greater comfort.
Scope of application
KSHS gloves of the first type are indispensable in many industrial labor. Most often, they are used for manual loading of various containers with aggressive chemicals. But they are also used to perform technical works that do not require high accuracy. They found their use on factories, in auto repair and even in agriculture, where various hazardous chemicals also use. They are used in the manufacture and making fertilizers, when working with electrolyte in batteries, disinfection of premises, working with dangerous connections in chemical laboratories and many more.
They must be used for any contacts with chemicals representing a threat to human skin. If you work in the sphere, at least indirectly related to the chemical industry, or your hobby is somehow connected with dangerous chemical compounds, you must have such gloves. Otherwise, you are very risking – any emboss can adversely affect both your hands and health in general.
