||Description of a study of 17 types of safety gloves intended for use by printers working with solvents. Sections of the report cover: characteristics of various polymer materials used in safety gloves; permeability; hand grip when using safety gloves; comfort; requirements for glove last design; test methods (permeation studies, manual function and comfort evaluation, bending resistance); tests on combinations of new materials; new glove last designs; results of test measurements; conclusions and recommendations. The study was designed in such a way that it should constitute a project model for the development of safety gloves for other jobs.
