PVA Protective Gloves

PVA Protective Gloves

PVA Wash-Up Gloves
PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol) protective gloves are one of the only gloves suitable for handling strong organic solvents.  PVA gloves give maximum protection from solvent even with complete immersion, and are;

  • Virtually inert in aromatic and chlorinated solvents
  • A comfortable anatomical glove with pre-curved fingers and winged thumb,
    making it easier to manipulate small printer parts and less tiring to wear
  • Have a soft two-piece knitted liner to cushion the hand and absorbs perspiration
  • Are antistatic according to EN1149, and testing compliant to AS/NZS 2161

PVA gloves are highly effective against organic chemicals, such as chlorinated solvents and aromatic compounds, making them excellent hand protection for your solvent wash-up unit.

The good oil from our trade print room

  • We wipe excess ink from printer parts before wash-up. This gives us between two and three months use from each drum of Solva Wash.
  • We use a recirculating parts wash up unit design specifically for washing printer parts with solvent solution. It eliminates splashing, reduces fumes and cuts wash-up time dramatically. We wouldn’t be without our Solva Wash-Up Unit!
