Chemical Resistant Gloves
Work gloves are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Selecting the proper gloves for the job goes a long way towards safety and performance. When dealing with chemicals, standard leather or other types of work gloves are not enough. Chemical resistant gloves provide the level of protection you won’t find in other types of gloves because they’re created with special materials and designed for chemical use, often with government requirements for safety. If you’re applying pesticides on your farm or handle other hazards materials, chemical resistant gloves are the way to go! Learn more about Durango chemical resistant gloves below.
Leather Work Gloves
Leather work gloves are a timeless piece of apparel for workers of many different industries, as well as use around your house or property. The popularity of leather gloves stems from their durability, lifespan and versatility. When selecting leather work gloves, it’s important to consider what type of work you will use them for and prioritizing which features are best suited for the job. Not all leather gloves are the same and this is because of the various materials used to make them. Each hide has unique properties that make it ideal for certain jobs and less suited for others. To help you decide which type of Durango leather work glove is best for your needs, we’ve broken them down by four of the most popular hides. Shop our affordable selection of Durango leather work gloves today.
The biggest appeal of deerskin gloves is the supple nature of the hide material. Deerskin gloves are one of the softest leather work gloves available and conform to your hand over time as a result. This creates amazing comfort and improved flexibility compared to other types of leather gloves. Deerskin gloves are also very lightweight and won’t overheat your hands like other kinds of leather gloves do. Our Durango deerskin gloves are great for a number of applications as we offer lined gloves, deerskin palm gloves, drivers and many others.
Cowhide gloves are the most common type of leather work gloves because cowhide is readily available and the easiest to maintain. Cowhide gloves offer great value for texture, appearance, durability and comfort. If you’re seeking a strong, all-purpose work glove for use around the ranch, farm or landscaping, cowhide is a fantastic option. Our Durango cowhide gloves come in many different styles, including lined gloves, drivers and welding gloves.
Pigskin gloves provide a soft and supple feel, but is the thinnest of the leather work gloves, making them extremely breathable. Another great benefit to pigskin leather gloves is the fact they dry out easily, so they won’t harden or stiffen, even after getting wet. Much like our other Durango leather work gloves, we offer pigskin gloves in a variety of styles and intended uses to fit any job you might face.
Goatskin is often considered the strongest leather thanks to its high-tensile strength and abrasion-resistant properties. Goatskin gloves stand the test of time and are perfect for jobs where the gloves will face plenty of abrasion or risk of tearing. You gain all of this despite goatskin being thin and breathable. It's also soft and pliable thanks to the natural oil content in the leather. From leather welding gloves to drivers and insulated work gloves, our line of Durango goatskin gloves offers comfortable protection for any desired application.
Selecting the correct welding gloves can make a tremendous difference in many areas including speed, ability and safety. When you look for welding gloves and which kind to pick, it is important to strike a balance with a couple factors: flexibility and protection. Understanding the material each glove is made from is a great first step as well and selecting a glove that will match well with the type of welding you do or plan to do.
Noel’s Inc. carries one of the largest selections and quality of gloves and are the exclusive supplier for several manufacturers. Our Durango gloves is a division of Noel’s Inc., creating top-quality leather welding gloves at competitive prices as your single source for industrial hand and eye protection.
Characteristics of High-Quality Gloves
As you assess the quality of the welding gloves you’re looking at, there are several important factors you should consider before selecting a pair. The bottom line is, you want welding gloves that are hard-wearing and long-lasting, which is why all of our Durango gloves are made with only the highest-quality materials and craftsmanship. This is important for comfort, durability and dependability. Welding gloves, just like any kind of leather work gloves, are made with different types of leather for different strengths and benefits. But you also need to take into account the type of welding you plan to use them for. Before you make the final decision, consider these characteristics first.
Wearing uncomfortable gloves is a quick way to ruin the entire experience of welding. Fit is important for comfort, of course, but it also matters for protection. If your hands keep slipping out of gloves that are too big, for example, you’re exposing your skin to serious burns or worse. Consider the type of thumb you want and how much of your arm you’d like protected as well.
Great leather gloves for TIG welding provide a tremendous deal of dexterity. Protecting yourself from heat and splattering are not as important when TIG welding compared to other types, so you can sacrifice a bit to gain more precision of movement. Goatskin gloves are a fantastic option for TIG welders, as are keystone thumbs.
Because MIG welding exposes you to more heat than TIG welding does, you need to make splattering and heat resistance your top priority when choosing welding gloves. This includes protection for lots of sparks. Welding gloves made from heavier leather such as cowhide glovestend to be strong options for MIG welders. These welding gloves offer tremendous durability as well.
Stick welding requires the heaviest level of protection from your welding gloves. Stick welding generates extremely high heat and lots of splattering. However, you don’t need as much dexterity, so wearing a heavier-weight cowhide glove is not a problem. You also want to consider purchasing welding gloves that cover more than just your hand or combine them with other protective welding apparel that covers your arms.
Factors to Consider
- Level and type of heat
- Exposure or length of contact
- Features of flame-resistance
- Thickness of outer material
- Flexibility of the material
- Tools or machine use
- Quality of craftsmanship
- Amount of work you do
- Picking the right leather type

Chemical Resistant Gloves
Selecting the right chemical resistant gloves depends on the specific work conditions, processes, chemical types and duration of the chemical exposure. Durango gloves from Noel’s Inc. provides a wide variety of chemical resistant gloves with materials, constructions and features for many applications. This section includes a breakdown of the common materials chemical resistant gloves are made with.
PVC Gloves (Polyvinyl Chloride)
Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC gloves, are made with a synthetic thermoplastic polymer. This polymer is extremely cost-effective and offers good resistance to abrasion, resins, glues, aqueous solutions and alcohols.
Nitrile gloves are made with nitrile, a synthetic rubber with high snag, abrasion and puncture resistance. Nitrile gloves protect against oils, greases, animal fats and many solvents. Plus, they are a fantastic option for individuals who have latex allergies.
Latex gloves are just natural rubber gloves, providing you with the best grip out of all the different materials. Latex gloves protect against bases, alcohols, dilute water solutions and some ketones. However, some people may be allergic to latex.
Characteristics to Consider
As you consider which type of chemical resistant gloves to buy, there are a few characteristics you should weigh before making the final decision. Let’s take a closer look at the three main factors to consider before you buy.
When it comes to pesticide use on the farm or at home, the World Protection Standard (known as the WPS and governed by the EPA) recommends a glove with a 14-milor greater thickness. The length of time the chemical resistant gloves are exposed to chemicals affect their level of protection, so thickness alone does not always mean greater protection.
The most common length for chemical resistant gloves is 13 inches because this length allows the gloves to fit over your wrist and on top of your sleeves to avoid any contact of chemicals getting on you or your clothes.
One of the challenges of working with chemical resistant gloves is traction due to the materials they are generally made from. While latex gloves offer the best grip, you can use gloves with pebbled or textured fingers and palms to increase grip and traction. This also helps with donning and removing the chemical resistant gloves, where contamination frequently occurs.

As a woman owned business, I like the fact that Durango Gloves is one of the only glove companies that carry women's and children's gloves in full grain leathers. I also like their guaranteed sales. I don't have to have winter gloves sitting around collecting dust all summer long. I highly recommend Durango Gloves.
