What to do if the rubber gloves are broken
The latex gloves we usually use are actually natural rubber products, and they have two weaknesses – the oil resistance and heat resistance of rubber are not very strong.
If you use it at high temperature every day, and you don’t clean the gloves immediately after cleaning up the greasy, it will accelerate the aging of the gloves over time;
Because the molecular structure of natural rubber is very similar to that of oil, it is easy for each other to enter each other’s voids, which is what we often call the phenomenon of “similar compatibility”. So when the oil remains on the glove for a long time, it will slowly dissolve the glove and accelerate its aging.
So be sure to avoid hot water and oil when washing things with gloves, otherwise latex gloves will age at a rapid rate!
However, some people have said that our latex gloves not only become soft and sticky, but also sometimes become brittle and hard, which are also easy to break. why is this?
In fact, this is due to the aging of natural rubber. If you are often exposed to oil and hot water, it will become soft and sticky. However, if you do not wash your gloves in time or expose to the sun, it will become hard and brittle. .
In addition, plastic products such as plastic bottles, milk bottles, etc. and rubber products such as gloves are all polymer materials in nature. Here is a reminder for you to pay attention to use and maintenance: firstly, avoid prolonged exposure to high temperature and oil; secondly, after use, be sure to clean up in time, dry in the shade in a ventilated place, and never leave it in the sun sun exposure.
