    Default Razor Resto Safety

    A big Thanx to Robin ( BeBerlin) for helping me out with my first Wiki article.

    I was worried I'd nuked the Wiki but no, it seems anything is fixable... even my mistakes

    Word of warning: latex gloves can be dangerous themselves, too! Do not work with them in the neighbourhood of a naked flame or any other heat source. They will melt and burn into your skin.
    Also, they do not protect against organic solvents (xylene, benzene, ether, acetone, methanol,...) or concentrated bases/acids. Also, the chemicals they do protect against, they only do so for a limited time. After a while, the latex will break down and it will come through, even though you don't notice it right away.

    You're better off using PVC or nitrille gloves (nitrille is better), or buying some high quality reusable chemical gloves. Make sure not to spill anything on your hands, and if you do, take off your gloves immediately and throw them away (in the case of reusable gloves: wash them thouroughly on the outside).
    Be careful handling metal or glass when wearing gloves: when wet, you have NO grip at all.

    Work safe!

    Thanx. Made some minor edits but please, anybody, go for it if you want to add anything.
    Just try to keep the K.I.S.S. principle so it is not a chore to read.
