Title: Polymeric glove with thin, fluoroelastomeric coating, and method for making same

Abstract: A chemical-resistant protective glove includes a polymer base with a thin fluoroelastomeric coating. The glove is made by first placing the base on a mounting frame and inflating it with gas to spread the fingers. Successive thin layers of a water-base emulsion of the fluoroelastomeric material are then sprayed on the base. The final coating is applied with a relatively high air flow, creating a matte finish.
