Venom Steel Nitrile Gloves

The last time I wanted a box of nitrile gloves (was in Lowes I think) I came across these Venom Steel gloves that are "70% thicker". They weren't much more so I decided to get them instead of the normal ones.

What a great decision!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The difference between them and the cheaper gloves are night and day. If you value your hands enough that you acturally remember to put your gloves on, get these or similar and they will pay the small price difference in price in the reduced number you will use because the others keep getting holes in them.

Re: Venom Steel Nitrile Gloves

was working on my daughter bathroom yesterday and really saw just how much better the Venom gloves are to the standard ones she had

Re: Venom Steel Nitrile Gloves

Educate me - looking at random threads and this looks like it might be meaningful.

What are nitrile gloves, and where / when / why should I be wearing them?

Re: Venom Steel Nitrile Gloves

Nitrile gloves are more solvent resistant and do not trigger allergies as much as latex gloves.
I use typical pharmacy nitrile exam gloves for most jobs but sanding just rips them up. I have bought some 6mil gloves from webrestaurantstore.com and found they stand up to rough service better.
I use disposable gloves a lot. Cheap insurance.

Re: Venom Steel Nitrile Gloves

Actually, the thicker ones run about twice as much. Box of 100 of thin ones cost same as box of 50 of the thick ones. I use both a lot depending on the job.

Harbour Freight has both for about $8/box. My industrial supplier can't match the price for the same glove.

I use them for lots of jobs:

- working on greasy pumps, engine, etc to keep my hands clean. Nice not to walk around with black under the fingernails for a week.

- Painting and varnishing for the same reasons.

- Working with epoxy, sovlents and other nasties that you don't want in contact with your skin.

- When using bleach or other things that leave your hands smelling and are hard to clean off.

Re: Venom Steel Nitrile Gloves

I’ll check them out!! Last week one tore when I dared to pick up a putty knife by the wrong end and I thought ‘why do I keep buying these things’.
