NIOSH ERC Webinar: Permeation Through Disposable Nitrile Gloves: Gun Cleaning Solvents and Gunshot Residue

August 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Firearms emit a complex mixture of inorganic and organic compounds that pose health risks. These compounds, or gunshot residues (GSRs), must be removed from the firearm to assure its proper function and for the safety of the user. Cleaning requires the use of gun cleaning solvents (GCSs) and manufacturers recommend appropriate protective gloves be worn while using GCSs. However, no research has previously been conducted to investigate the permeation of these solvents through disposable nitrile gloves. GCSs are generally complex…
