G9492 Glove System Stay protected and operate equipment easily

As you know, your body isn't the only thing that needs ChemBio protection: your hands need it too. However, you can't afford to compromise dexterity or tactility on the mission. The G9492 glove system that uses GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier fabric offers the needed protection from ChemBio warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals. While wearing these gloves, you can operate rescue tools, weapons, and electronics more easily while remaining protected. These gloves are ideal for first responders, SWAT operations, and high-risk narcotics entries.

Typical Applications

The G9492 glove system with GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier fabric is dual-certified to NFPA 1994, Class 2 and Class 3, and NFPA 1992. Gloves made of this durable fabric are ideal for operations that potentially involve blister agents, nerve agents, industrial chemicals, blood, and body fluids — operations such as:

  • Contaminated search and rescue
  • Hazardous material operations
  • Chemical threat protection
  • SWAT and high-risk entry
  • WMD or terrorist incident
  • Chemical containment and decontamination

Advantages of G9492 Glove System

Excellent Dexterity

You need gloves that protect against potential hazards without sacrificing touch, feel, or fit. Wearing the G9492 glove system, you can operate rescue tools, weapons, and electronics more easily.

Durable Performance

Durable protection against hazardous chemicals and warfare agents throughout a hazmat or tactical mission is crucial. The two-part G9492 glove system — a protective liner of GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier fabric worn under a Nomex® flight-style glove with leather palm — resists cuts, tears, and punctures. With this glove system’s enhanced durability, you can be more confident that you will remain protected in the most physically demanding environments.

Improved Integrity

It's well known that rubber gloves can swell when exposed to petroleum, oils, and lubricants. This swelling can compromise protection and decrease tear resistance. In testing, GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier fabric showed no swelling in the presence of a number of petroleum-based products, oils, and lubricants, unlike the butyl rubber product.

 

Longer Product Life

The G9492 glove system with GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier glove liners has been evaluated in an emergency response field trial involving five uses and five washes, with no exposure to threat agents. The test results indicate that this glove system can potentially be reused up to five times.

Why GORE® CHEMPAK® Fabric

Gore manufactures a range of barrier fabrics that offer enhanced functionality in chemical and biological environments. GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier fabric is lightweight, impermeable, and provides a high level of protection against a broad range of toxic industrial chemicals and warfare agents.
