How are you protecting your skin during repairs? Is skin safety important to you? Even though our Delta Kits windshield repair resins have a very low toxicity rating, it’s important to be diligent about protecting your skin when working with resin.
How do we do it?
Nitrile gloves should be your first defense. Delta Kits recommends that you always glove up before working with any windshield repair resin, or cleaning chemical. But what do you do if you get a hole in your glove? Immediately remove the compromised glove and wash hands with soap and hot water.For extra protection between the point time the chemical comes in contact with the skin and the time you are able to wash your hands, we’ll let you in on a not-so-little secret.
Here at our own shop, we use Derma Shield to protect our skin safety while doing repairs, in our training classes, in our warehouse, and even in our office. It’s a skin protectant mousse that provides a microscopic, undetectable protective layer on the skin that lasts up to 4 hours, creating a barrier between your skin and any chemicals or contaminates that come in contact with your skin. What’s more, Derma Shield quickly dries, leaving your hands grease-free and ready to handle your bridge and other repair tools you need during repairs.
An added bonus
In addition to mitigating irritation from chemicals, Derma Shield is also great at keeping grease and grime from penetrating into the upper layers of your skin, so all of that can be easily washed away with soap and warm water. Watch the video below showing how easily grease and dye are washed away from the skin when Derma Shield has been applied.
