Title A moving robotic hand system for whole-glove permeation and penetration: Captan and nitrile gloves
Bibliographic information Apr. 2008, Vol.5, No.4, p.258-270. Illus. 39 ref.
Abstract The aim of this study was to develop a robotic hand to test the influence of hand movement on the permeation and penetration of captan through disposable nitrile rubber gloves. Permeation of an aqueous emulsion (217mg/mL) of captan was tested at 35░C. A surface wipe technique was used to collect captan from the inner surface of the exposed gloves. Findings are discussed. It is suggested that future research should continue to investigate the influence of hand movement and additional work factors on the permeation, penetration and physical integrity of protective gloves.
