Fluoroelastomer

Fluoroelastomer, a high performance polymer, is recommended for prolonged contact with aromatic solvents, sulphur-based chemicals and amines.

The Mapa Professional multi-layer technology creates an especially supple fluoroelastomer glove, with high chemical resistance.

Fluoroelastomer is an expensive material. It is classed as a specialpurpose polymer, reserved for applications requiring very high, targeted, chemical protection.

Beware: fluroelastomer is not recommended for prolonged contact with ketones, organic acids and acetates
