My lacquer thinner ate through 10 pairs of nitrite gloves this morning
trying to do some cleanup work. I have some heavy duty chemical resistance
gloves but those are too bulky to do for any detail work so what kind of
thin protective gloves to use for lacquer thinner?
Thanks for all the comments. Its suppose to be nitrile gloves, its also
stated as such on the box, but the consenses indicated it should be
compatable with lacquer thinner, now I'm not so sure. It does last about 5x
longer than the latex gloves. Do those gloves have a shelf life? Its about 2
years old as I'm down the my last pair out of a box of 100?
The only thing I've found that eats nitrile gloves is methylene
chloride paint stripper. I found that out the hard and painful way.
I doubled up and changed pairs often to finish the job, and will buy a
pair of neoprene gloves for the next stripping job.

I would try polyethylene gloves. They are ultra-cheap, and used by the
food industry. I haven't tried them myself, but it's based the observation
that it's impossible to glue polyethylene (there's definitely no solvent-based
:) I don't think that would be a good idea.
laminated gloves would be his best bet; for disposables, nitrile is
still the glove of choice, but they won't last too long, esp if the
there's a fair amount of ketone in the lacquer thinner.
I had the same question. Turns out that "lacquer thinner" isn't
well-defined. Different manufacturers use different formulations. My can
came from Ace, so I went back and asked for the MSDS. I compared the
ingredients with a chemical resistance chart that came with my nitrile
gloves. Oh No! There is no single glove (or pair...) that is
resistant to everything in the can.
So, get the MSDS for the stuff you have, and only then start looking for
