Improving the tolerance of protective gloves worn by cement workers affected by dermatitis, using a local anticholinergic
Amélioration de la tolérance des gants de protection chez les cimentiers atteints de dermite sous l'effet d'un anticholinergique local. [in French]
MD thesis. Clinical picture, frequency, forensic medical aspects and pathogenesis of cement workers' dermatitis of the hand, and skin diseases in general, due to the effects of cement, the chemical properties of which partly explain these symptoms. The author examines the various work posts involving exposure to cement and various conventional means of prevention, to be superseded in future by more efficient methods (in particular, the use of Diphemanil or N,N-dimethyl-4-piperidylidene-1,1-diphenylmethane methylsulfate). A pharmacological and bibliographical study of these substances is followed by the results of conclusive tests made to improve the comfort of impervious protective gloves by wearing inside gloves of jersey cloth impregnated with an anticholinergic marketed in France under the name of Prantal.

Resistance of protective gloves to industrial solvents - Results obtained with perchloroethylene on 100 commercial gloves
Résistance des gants de protection aux solvants industriels - Résultats obtenus avec le perchloréthylène sur une centaine de gants du commerce. [in French]
These tests, conducted by the French National Research and Safety Institute, are the first in a series intended to test the resistance of gloves to 10 solvents (trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethane, toluene, white spirit, cyclohexane, acetone, methylethylketone, ethyl acetate, ethanol). There were 3 types of test: destruction by soaking, permeability to solvent, and measurements of speed of solvent passage across the glove. Results are tabulated.
