Title Hand protection for car-painters
Bibliographic information Nov. 1985, Vol.13, No.5, p.317-320. 4 ref.
Abstract In a single blind cross-over study, the skin compatibility and comfort of cotton inner gloves were compared with a special astringent cream in 64 car painters: 38 painters preferred cream under disposable polyethylene gloves, while 20 preferred cotton gloves under polyethylene gloves. The difference was not statistically significant. Persons with a tendency to excessive perspiration tended to prefer cotton inner gloves. Creams offered as an alternative to inner gloves should not contain sensitising components.
