Chemical Resistant Work Shoes
Selecting the right waterproof footwear for your specific work environment is dependent upon the Chemical Resistance the materials used in producing the boot. Gearcor has two online resources to assist in selecting the right type of boos that will resist the chemicals or fluids in your work environment. These guides are The Waterproof Boot Comparison Guide and the Chemical Chart Guide. A boot material that is not resistant to the particular chemicals or fluids you are working in will fail to hold up and could cause a danger to you and your employees. For example rubber boots are very resistant to fertilizers, ammonia anhydrous, alcohols, milk, wet concrete and animal waste but are not resistant to chicken fats and oils and the boots will fall apart in a chicken processing plant. PVC or TPU materials would work much better in a work environment with animal fats.
