Not without Gloves: Wood stains


Wood stains come in a variety of compositions and consistencies. Some are semi-transparent, and others are intended to create a thick coating over the wood. Because of the variety of products on the market, specific stains may have multiple hazardous chemicals in them. Here are some chemicals commonly found in wood stains and effective disposable gloves for each:

Ethylene glycol
Although many wood stains are water-based, they still contain a small percentage of a solvent, such as ethylene glycol. This chemical is poorly absorbed through the skin, but the U.S. Centers for Disease Control still recommends chemical-resistant gloves for handling ethylene glycol. For ethylene glycol in its liquid form, vinyl, nitrile and latex gloves all provide protection. In the solvent’s ether form, latex and nitrile gloves may be used for a limited time. On-site testing should always be conducted to determine the safe handling time for a particular solution.

Sodium hydroxide
Sodium hydroxide is a corrosive with the potential to cause burns on any tissue it comes into contact with. Chemical burns may even lead to deep tissue damage, so this chemical should always be handled with care. Solutions of sodium hydroxide with up to a 50 percent concentration may be safely handled with latex, nitrile or vinyl gloves.

Mineral spirits are hydrocarbons commonly found in wood stains, paints and paint thinners. Direct contact with mineral spirits causes skin burns, irritation and even necrosis. Nitrile gloves offer protection for safe handling of mineral spirit concentrations of up to 100 percent.

Ethyl alcohol
Ethyl alcohol is most commonly found in alcoholic beverages, and it is also used as a solvent and to manufacture other chemicals. Ethyl alcohol is flammable, and high concentrations may irritate the skin or cause redness or dryness. For wood stains containing ethyl alcohol, latex and nitrile gloves are well suited for application. Vinyl gloves may be used for a limited time.

Latex
Some film finishes are latex-based for a more solid finish and better color retention than other stains but adds risks for people with latex sensitivities. Nitrile gloves are suitable for people with latex sensitivities or allergies, and these gloves provide superior chemical resistance for many different compounds.

1,4-Dioxane
1,4-dioxane is a chemical found in wood stains and a suspected carcinogen that may also cause skin irritation. Latex and vinyl gloves may be used for a limited time for protection from 1,4-dioxane.

Choose Quality Work Gloves

Depending on the situations workers regularly encounter, they may need work gloves that are suitable for repeat use. Rather than wearing disposable gloves, dipped, dishwashing or leather gloves for home and industrial applications may be best for messy or tough situations. Some jobs need more strength and protection than disposal gloves offer, which is why AMMEX has a full line of heavy duty work gloves to meet your needs. You may need a stronger grip, warmth or better puncture protection. Here is the complete list of work gloves and their uses:

Latex dipped work gloves
Latex dipped work gloves have a string polyester cotton interior and are partially dipped in texturized latex for better grip. These gloves are used for industrial and home situations when a strong grip is necessary. However, these gloves may not be suitable for people with latex sensitivities.

Nitrile dipped work gloves
These gloves are stretch nylon and partially dipped in nitrile on the outside. These may be a better choice for people who should not come into contact with latex. Nitrile dipped gloves are seamless and have a texture that makes gripping easier.

Dishwashing gloves
Beyond what their name implies, dishwashing gloves are well suited for a variety of uses in the home, industrial facilities and commercial kitchens. They also may be used for cleaning purposes because of the longer 12 inch cuff. They are 17 millimeters thick to protect the wearer’s hands and are flock lined for comfort and textured across the palms.

Knit work gloves
Brown or white jersey knit gloves are a cotton and polyester blend and come in two sizes. It is important to keep your hands warm when working outside during the winter, and these gloves are fleece-lined, making them suitable for working in cold temperatures. The brown color may be better for working in dirty environments.

Leather work gloves
AMMEX offers multiple types of leather gloves for a variety of uses. Unlined leather driver gloves are cooler for longer wear. They are made out of grain leather and have a winged thumb. Unlined leather driving gloves are a great choice for machine operators to keep their hands comfortable while using equipment. Split cowhide gloves with a rubberized cuff are heavy duty for protection, and fleece lined in the palm to keep the hands warm. The rubberized gauntlet cuff helps the glove stay on the hand. These gloves are great for garden work, especially when handling tools or thorny plants. Alternatively, AMMEX offers split cowhide gloves with a starched cuff that may be more suitable for people with latex sensitivities.

String knit work gloves
These gloves are made from cotton and polyester well-suited for gardening and other yard work applications. They also come in a variety with double PVC dots for better grip.

Work glove liners
Sold in both cotton and nylon varieties, workers are able to use these glove liners inside other gloves or on their own. Nylon glove liners are lint free, making them well-suited for inspecting products on the line. Cotton glove liners make heavy duty work gloves more comfortable for longer wear.

Not Without Gloves: Pesticides


Pesticides should always be handled with the proper barrier protection. Different formulations target various organisms, such as insects, rodents, algae, weeds and fungi. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulates the use of all pesticides and requires chemicals that have been registered for many years to be reassessed to ensure they meet current standards.

Pesticides typically come in organic or inorganic solutions with an active ingredient. Although some pesticide formulas are less toxic than others, they are still hazardous to human health in high levels, and anyone handling these products must protect themselves. Here are some of the hazardous chemicals commonly found in pesticides and effective gloves for handling each:

Naphthalene
Naphthalene is made from crude oil, coal tar or created when other chemicals burn. It was the first registered pesticide in the U.S. in 1948. Because this chemical is found in mothballs, it has been shown to cause anemia in infants when the clothing was not washed prior to wear, according to the National Pesticide Information Center at Oregon State University. It has been linked to anemia in adults as well. Although naphthalene breaks down in the environment over time, workers should wear gloves when handling pesticides that contain this chemical.

Latex, nitrile and vinyl gloves are all resistant to naphthalene. Because these types of gloves all provide protection from this chemical, it is easier for companies to accommodate people with latex sensitivities.

Paradichlorobenzene
Another common insecticide, paradichlorobenzene causes a burning sensation on the skin after prolonged contact. Nitrile gloves are recommended protection from skin exposure to this toxin.

Capsaicin
Even naturally occurring chemicals can cause harm. Capsaicin, for example, is a naturally occurring chemical that gives chili peppers their heat. It is used to deter mites, insects and animals. While it is safe for humans to eat, it may irritate the skin or eyes upon contact, especially when highly concentrated. The effects are temporary and it is considered a safer pesticide because it is a naturally occurring substance, but skin contact may cause pain. High concentrations of capsaicin may burn through latex gloves in a short time. Nitrile gloves provide greater protection from this harsh substance.

For any pesticide, it is important to know the solution’s chemical composition and then test disposal work gloves for resistance to identify safe exposure levels. Contact your AMMEX representative or contact us on our website to learn more about the right barrier protection and add gloves to your line up.

What Your Shelves Say about Your Disposable Gloves


Did you know salespeople are not the only ones who talk to consumers about the benefits of buying disposable gloves? If not, you forget important product advocates: your displays.

Gloves will not sell themselves. Strategic displays allow you to uncover the hidden potential of the glove line to sell more products and increase your sales. The good news is AMMEX Corporation’s products and Sales Acceleration Solution® (SAS) give you the tools you need to make your shelves talk the disposable gloves talk and entice consumers to buy your products.

What you get with AMMEX products
AMMEX packaging starts a visual conversation with consumers. Not only do the glove images speak in a language every customer understands, but they also present three views:

AMMEX-What-does-your-shelves-say

  • Option A is to show the front face of the packaging to customers, which provides the largest surface area for viewing.
  • Option B is to stack the boxes with the side face pointing at the aisle, creating a display with a medium length and a short height.
  • The final view, option C, is to position the gloves with the more vertical face directed at customers, providing a shorter length but more height.

“Strategic displays allow you to increase your sales.”

How to display your glove inventory
The aforementioned configurations for displaying your gloves rely on your goals for the products and the shelf dimensions.

Here are some tips for arranging your gloves on shelving units:

  • To maximize space, use option B, as indicated on the right in the image below. Within a standard 12-foot shelving unit, this strategy allows for gloves to occupy four rows. As a result, you display more sizes across the space. However, this option provides only one view of the product. Another drawback of option B is this route presents challenges for placing barcode index numbers (BINs) on the sides of the shelves to indicate the products present. For instance, if you place four glove sizes on one shelf because you have the space, you must fit those four BINs in the same space.
  • To display both the front and one side panel of the packaging, use a combination of options A and C, as shown on the left side of the image. The trade-off here is space is sacrificed for greater visibility, but managing the BIN channel will be easier.
  • Keep in mind products at eye level attract the most customers. Consequently, it is best to place your most profitable glove products in this position. Also, consider the sizes that are more likely to sell to your customers. It is best practice to always display large and extra large gloves, and judge how many small and medium products to display based on demand.

AMMEX-Showcase-the-product

These are various options for displaying AMMEX products on your shelves.

Keeping the conversation going with shelf talkers
Now that customers have seen the product, how do you close the sale – especially when a salesperson cannot always be present? This is where your shelf talkers become integral.

Shelf talkers are materials that you display with the products to educate customers about their purchasing decision. These include the laminated chemical resistance and glove sizing chart that comes with your SAS kit. Because these items provide information on topics such as the difference between poly and vinyl gloves, you supply the details necessary to successfully convert a sale without having a glove expert in the area at all times.

Also, consider zip tying glove samples from your SAS kit to the shelf or leaving a master bag near the products. This gives customers an interactive shopping experience where they truly feel the difference between the many glove types. Plus, this tactic helps reduce shrinkage by eliminating the need for customers to open boxes to feel the glove materials.

Maximizing your sales
None of the aforementioned tips work if you do not use them effectively. When choosing between options A, B and C, the key to boosting sales is to select a glove assortment and product layout that caters to your customers. For instance, if your shelf space accommodates only a 1-foot configuration (the top row in the image), do not overload that space with small latex gloves if your business mostly services auto technicians who need the chemical protection of nitrile gloves and have larger hands.

Another consideration is where you put the gloves display in the store. To keep customers from having an ah-ha moment at home about a product they should have purchased at your store, put different glove types next to accompanying items in your store. In hardware and paint stores, for example, 90 percent of the products pair well with nitrile gloves. By placing these gloves with related products, you ensure customers get everything they need in one trip. Clip strips and glove project packs (pictured on the left in the above image) are perfect for this task.

Any vendor can sell you gloves. AMMEX is here to help you sell more. Contact an AMMEX representative today or contact us on our website to get started on becoming a distributor.

All about Allergies: Part 2 Synthetics


Natural rubber latex disposable gloves typically get most of the attention when it comes to allergies, but allergic reactions are also possible with synthetic glove materials like nitrile butadiene rubber and polyvinyl chloride (PVC or vinyl). While allergies to these materials themselves are uncommon, the chemicals used in the production processes are common causes.

During the production of nitrile and vinyl gloves, manufacturers use various substances to turn the base ingredients into the final glove materials. These chemicals are in both the process to form the actual PVC and nitrile and to turn these materials into gloves.

To create vinyl, for example, petroleum is used in the manufacturing process. Petroleum is used to create naphtha, which is combined with other chemicals to form ethylene. The ethylene is combined with chlorine, and through two more transformations, this combination becomes polyvinyl chloride.

Allergy tiggers
With latex gloves, the allergic reactions usually stem from the proteins in the latex. With synthetics, the issue lies with the petroleum. While rare, petroleum allergies do occur in some individuals.

As a result of contact with the glove materials, individuals with petroleum allergies experience contact dermatitis, which may lead to skin irritation, hives, redness and blistering in more extreme cases. Respiratory effects, such as throat itching, coughing and wheezing, appear with allergic reactions to petroleum gas but not commonly with petroleum-based gloves.

“If certain individuals wear a glove that is too-tight, the skin will not be able to breathe inside the glove which may cause an irritation.”

Acknowledging indirect causes of irritation
Although petroleum allergies are rare, some nitrile and vinyl glove wearers will experience contact dermatitis. However, this reaction does not always occur because of the glove materials.

One common issue is an irritative substance on the hands. Certain substances, such as residual hand soap or a scented lotion, will not cause too much of a problem on an exposed hand, but the associated reaction to it will be more pronounced in some individuals when they have a glove pressing the substance to their skin.

This issue is more evident when a glove is too small. Overall, too-tight gloves create irritation and discomfort as the skin is unable to breathe inside the glove.

Key points about glove material allergies
Whether it is latex, nitrile or vinyl, glove users must ensure they have the right gloves for the job. This applies to selecting the right material for the application as well as the appropriate size.

Additionally, as individuals and employers attempt to accommodate allergies, they must also consider how the alternative glove materials will fare in their work environments.  For a wide variety of glove options ranging in material, thickness, and sizing contact an AMMEX representative today or contact us on our website to learn more.

All about Allergies: Part 1 Latex


Latex allergies have serious consequences for health care and industrial workers as well as patients. Individuals experience a range of reactions from coming into contact with latex, including contact dermatitis and anaphylaxis, which is life-threatening. These reactions stem from the natural rubber latex proteins. Although latex gloves provide the best fit and feel, they are not the right choice for those with latex sensitivities. It’s crucial for people who come into contact with latex to understand the symptoms of a reaction.

What are latex allergies?
An immediate reaction after contact with latex is an indication of an allergy. This type of response to latex triggers the immune system, causing sneezing, a runny nose, coughing or wheezing and an itchy throat or eyes. Repeated exposure may cause people with only minor reactions to progress to anaphylaxis over time.

This reaction is triggered by latex proteins, which come from natural rubber. Many latex gloves are powdered, and the food-grade cornstarch powder transfers the proteins to the skin. The powder also spreads proteins to the eyes and throat.

“Health care workers are at an increased risk for latex sensitivity as latex is the most common glove used in that industry.”

Employees who work with latex products frequently may develop allergic reactions. This is especially common in the health care sector and rubber factories. People who have had 10 or more surgeries, food allergies or a family history of allergies are at a heightened risk.

While some people are born with latex allergies, many individuals have sensitivities that become more severe with repeated exposure. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 50 percent of people with latex allergy have a history of another type of allergy.

What are the symptoms of a reaction?
One of the most common reactions to latex is contact dermatitis, which is irritation or dryness of the skin. Delayed contact dermatitis often appears 12 to 36 hours after using a latex product, and the symptoms include red, scaly or itchy skin. Anyone who uses latex gloves may experience this reaction, but it does not mean they are allergic. Because there is a wide range of reactions to latex and they may get more severe over time, it’s important to check with a doctor or allergist to determine the true cause of a reaction.

Anaphylaxis is life-threatening because the reaction isn’t limited to one part of the body. People may experience difficulty breathing, red rashes, itchiness, swollen throat, chest tightness and trouble swallowing. This type of reaction may even cause someone to lose consciousness. Anaphylaxis typically occurs between 5-30 minutes of coming into contact with an allergen. While only 1 percent of the global population experiences anaphylaxis, latex is a common cause.

When reactions aren’t latex allergies
Contact dermatitis has multiple causes and not all are related to allergies. For example, medical professionals wash their hands frequently, leading to dryness. In addition, gloves trap soap, moisture or lotion against the skin, which sometimes causes irritation, especially when people don’t have the right glove size. Moreover, contact dermatitis sometimes happens because of incomplete hand drying or the friction of the glove powder rubbing against the skin.

Delayed hypersensitivity is often caused by the chemicals used to manufacture the gloves rather than the latex proteins. Antioxidants, emulsifiers, stabilizers and stiffeners cause severe contact dermatitis within two days after exposure for some people, and the reaction spreads to other areas such as the face in some cases. People with immediate hypersensitivity should avoid all exposure to latex in hopes of preventing a latex allergy.

Chronic contact dermatitis and delayed hypersensitivity are usually limited to the area of contact, but individuals with recurring reactions should see a doctor, dermatologist or allergist to confirm. Chronic contact dermatitis may be indicative of a different allergy.

The global perspective
As countries develop, glove usage is becoming more common in health systems around the world. The primary type of glove is latex, and allergies are occurring more frequently because of repeated exposure. The U.S. and other developed nations have started to use alternatives to latex, and other countries may need to follow suit.

Viable latex alternatives
AMMEX Corporation offers a full line of latex and synthetic exam-grade gloves to suit whatever needs you have. AMMEX Nitrile Exam Gloves are an excellent alternative to latex and have many benefits, such as greater tear resistance. Additionally, AMMEX Vinyl Exam Gloves are a cost-effective alternative to latex.

Barrier Protection Needs in the Beauty Industry


Whether customers seek no-chip manicures or a relaxing foot massage, nail and beauty technicians need barrier protection to guard themselves against harsh chemicals and pathogens. This presents a large sales opportunity for distributors of disposable gloves and masks.

Not only are salon owners looking out for the safety of their employees, but they are also liable to regulations from the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA). These best practices and rules are in place for a good reason.

The chemicals used by technicians include acetone, toluene, methyl ethyl ketone and isopropyl acetate. Prolonged exposure to these substances via skin contact or breathing in the vapors leads to symptoms such as:

  • Dizziness
  • Skin, eye, mouth and nose irritation
  • Burns
  • Harm to fetuses of pregnant technicians
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Coughing fits and asthma attacks
  • Kidney and liver damage

With regard to biological risks, employees need protection against bloodborne pathogens.

To address these risks, salon owners should purchase a few types of barrier protection:

Disposable gloves
Several glove materials are fitting for the safety risks present in salons. Latex gloves, such as the LX3 and Gloveworks Industrial Latex, are suitable for guarding against chemicals and pathogens.

However, because of the growing prevalence of latex allergies, the industry is trending toward non-latex gloves, such as nitrile and vinyl. Though nitrile gloves, such as the X3, X3D, and AMMEX Indigo Nitrile Exam Gloves, are not recommended for use with acetone, technicians are able to use these gloves because they have limited exposure to the chemical. Stretch synthetic vinyl gloves are also suitable. With these alternatives, neither workers or customers are exposed to latex.

“Gloves protect nail technicians from pathogens and harsh chemicals.”

Masks
Not all masks provide equal results in nail and beauty salons. Many salons use ear loop face masks (ELFMs), which also protect customers from what workers exhale.

N95-rated masks are filtering face pieces. These products, such as the N95 face mask, are useful for nail buffing and applying acrylic powders because they filter out germs and dusts. To fully realize this protection, workers must have properly fitted masks. They will find proper fitting information on the mask packaging.

Reaching the wide open market
With the aforementioned information in mind, it’s not hard to see why the more than 375,000 nail technicians in the U.S. need barrier protection. Distributors who would like to learn more about products that are suitable for their salon clients should speak with their AMMEX sales representative or contact us on our website for more information.

5 Benefits of Using Social Media Marketing


Social media is a prevalent part of consumers’ lives, and the phenomenon has strongly influenced marketing strategies. The push for social media marketing to reach consumers expanded to business-to-business interactions, providing companies with a new channel to reach their B2B clients.

This trend may be largely due to the increasing population of millennials in the workforce. This generation will soon account for the majority of workers in the U.S. as more baby boomers reach retirement age and exit the workforce.

With millennials acting as decision-makers in more companies, social media marketing becomes even more important for B2B sales. Millennials access social media from desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. Often, social media is the only means of connecting with these individuals, so businesses must embrace this channel as part of their marketing strategies.

Not only will social media help companies reach an increasingly millennial-dominated business world, but it also provides several tangible benefits:

Brand awareness
Businesses may seek to address a market need, but that does not mean clients will immediately latch on to those companies. Often, this lack of engagement occurs because potential clients are not aware of a company.

Social media provides a way to increase brand awareness. This channel is all about sharing – whether through links, videos, images or text – and a company should leverage the viral potential of content. If one lead discovers the business via social media, that lead is likely to share that brand with others he or she interacts with on social media.

Established credibility
Thought leadership, especially in niche industries, is crucial. Businesses take an authoritative stance among their industry peers and potential B2B clients by posting content that shows their expertise. An appraisal company, for example, promotes its thought leadership through links to home sales reports, interest rate data and case studies.

Moreover, as businesses interact with other thought leaders in their industries, leads and current clients see those conversations. If the appraisal company engages in a Twitter exchange with the chief economist of a real estate information website, the former then reaches individuals who subscribe to the latter.

Direct engagement with clients
Social media marketing is built to foster relationships. Whether its networking with colleagues or connecting with new friends, this channel is designed for direct interaction.

Television, radio and newspaper advertisements are impersonal. With social media, current and prospective business converse with the company. If someone has questions or comments about products, services or content posted to the page, he or she posts inquiries to a business’s social media profile and receives real-time support from customer service.

More closed deals
The aforementioned points lend to higher conversion and sales rates. With increased traffic, engagement, brand awareness and brand authority, the odds of moving leads through the sales funnel improve.

Social media platforms also provide many tools to enhance conversions. Targeted advertising allows businesses to direct their marketing efforts to specific verticals. For instance, a marketing automation software company may direct its advertisements toward decision-makers at financial institutions. Facebook, Twitter and other platforms provide tools to streamline ads to these leads.

“Social media provides a way to increase brand awareness.  As more millennials become decision-makers at companies, businesses must leverage social media marketing to reach them.”

Real-time sales support
Improving sales is the goal of social media marketing, but that does not mean the channel solely reaches out to leads and clients. Social media grants sales rep immediate access to support while they are in the field. Whether reps need more materials for product demonstrations, access to content to nurture leads or other resources, they are able to pull that information from their companies’ social media efforts.

When B2B leads search for a product or service, a company wants to be the first and most authoritative source they see. If businesses leverage social media effectively, they take a crucial step toward becoming industry leaders.
