Pesticides are often formulated as a concentrate in volatile organic solvents.
The most important means of preventing the contamination of workers using the concentrate is by the use of protective clothing, particularly gloves.
The influence of formulation solvent on solute permeation rates across selected protective glove materials has been investigated.
In one of the cases studied, the solute penetrated the glove material appreciably faster than the formulation solvent.
This result, therefore, questions the manner in which gloves are often selected for protection against pesticide formulations (by selecting the glove that offers the best protection against the formulation solvent rather than the active ingredient) (.).
