nitrile gloves

I bought a box of black "midknight' by Microflex, disposable nitrile gloves at Advance Auto after seeing one snow blower service center using them and reading on the net that they work well for gas, oil, and grease protection. So I get home and read the label.

"... the user is responsible for determining if these Nitrile gloves are suitable for a particular application, procedure, or chemical or biological exposure. Microflex makes no warranties or representations in this regard. if you have any questions whether these gloves are safe for your intended use please telephone a Microflex sales representative at (800) 876-6866.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitations of Remedies

These gloves are purchased "as is"

I had for at least expected to read that they could be used for something... like oil, gas and grease, and If I phoned the sales representatives I doubt if he'd send me anything in writing.
My problem is how do I or anybody actually know what they can be used for?

So I guess I am missing what the question is? Are you wondering if they are safe to use with gas/oil? If so, yes.

nitrile gloves

I use them in the parts washer , handling parts taken out of the acid bath.
Also when I am using aircraft paint stripper. They hold up well. Gas and oily stuff won't be a problem with them.

I use the black ones from Harbor Freight, with good results. Also the big black plumbers gloves there, are great to use when using paint stripper.

When I read the label on the box I assumed the company would name at least one or two products that they would assume some responsibility in writing, that these gloves could these be used for. This would clarify and give me at least some confidence in the actually over-all usage of product.

In other words this company seems to be quite defensive. Maybe they are good for oil and grease, but are the gloves good for any other products, say like Round-up which kills weeds. If there was something written, at least a partial list on the box that would help the average consumer know about what they were buying.
So far, all I've going by is hearsay, which I appreciate a lot , but it's not from the company.

Al-,

Don't get your hopes up, this is standard language especially for a product destined to be used with undesirable materials. There are so many circumstances beyond their control they'd be fools to say otherwise.

I've been using nitrite gloves for years in the shop for painting and grimy work and they are the way to go. Grease and grime won't bother them at all and some gas is tolerated. When cleaning parts with acetone or lacquer thinner they are short lived. I usually wear lighter lighter gloves, heavier ones should stand up better. My parts washer is filled with kerosene and it eats them, for that you want PVC(usually a bright teal color).

They probably say that because 1 type of glove won't protect you against every chemical, so they're covering their butt!
If you're handling some nasty chemicals, I'd be checking the MSDS to see what the chemical manufacturer recommend for proper skin protection.

I use them with oily stuff, gas OK, but not brake cleaner they don't hold up to bake parts cleaner. Work super for lithium grease.
