GORE® CHEMPAK® Ultra Barrier G9492 Glove System

To wash the inside of the Glove Liner,

  • Prepare a disinfecting solution by thoroughly mixing 1.5 oz. laundry bleach and one gallon of water, providing approximately 600 ppm available chlorine by weight.
  • Fill the inside of the Liner with the disinfecting solution to within three inches of the cuff opening.
  • Close the cuff opening and shake vigorously for approximately ten seconds. Do not squeeze the Liner while it is filled with the disinfecting solution; this causes pressure to build up and damage the Liner.
  • Pour out the solution, and squeeze out the excess solution.
  • Rinse with water after treatment.
  • Invert the Liner at cuff opening and allow it to air dry.

You can wash the outside of the Overglove and Liner while wearing them:

  • Hand-wash the outside with mild soap and water similar to washing your hands.
  • Rinse the gloves with clean water.
  • Dry the glove system slowly and away from places of extreme heat. (eg. hot radiators, stoves, fireboxes, etc.).

To wash the entire Overglove,

  • Immerse it for 30 seconds in the same disinfecting solution used for the Liner.
  • Stir while the glove remains in the solution for 10 more seconds.
  • Leave the glove in the solution for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Remove the glove from the solution and rinse it with water.
  • Squeeze out any excess water, and allow the glove to air dry.
