Stronghold is the ideal glove for high risk situations, providing barrier protection while handling chemotherapy drugs and chemicals

[sirv-gallery id=27]Stronghold gloves have been designed specifically to meet the demands of the pharmaceutical, laboratory and medical industries. Manufactured to the highest possible standards for pinholes, and independently certified for chemical and chemotherapy resistance, these robust purple-coloured nitrile gloves provide the ultimate in splash protection.

Manufactured using Unigloves’ proprietary Advanced Manufacturing Process, Stronghold gloves are easy to don, comfortable in use and carry a reduced risk of allergic reactions, and have been certified to both Medical and PPE standards.


Stronghold gloves have been tested for use against a wide range of chemicals according to international standard EN374. A list of test results recording breakthrough times of the relevant chemicals is available here. If a chemical is not listed, please contact us for advice on suitability before using Stronghold gloves.

Chemotherapy drugs

Stronghold has been tested for use against even the strongest chemotherapy pharmaceuticals according to international standard ASTM D6978-05 and approved for the manipulation of chemotherapy drugs. A list of test results recording breakthrough times of the relevant pharmaceuticals available here. If the relevant pharmaceutical is not listed, please contact us for advice on suitability before using Stronghold gloves.


Standard gloves are manufactured to an acceptable quality level of 1.5 pinholes in every 100 gloves produced. Stronghold gloves have been designed specifically to meet the demands of the pharmaceutical, laboratory and medical industries, and have been produced to a much more stringent level of 0.65 pinholes in every 100 gloves, the highest standard available for single use, splash resistant gloves.

Advanced manufacturing process

Unigloves’ proprietary Advanced Manufacturing Process ensures ease of donning, comfort in use and reduced risk of allergic reactions. Our Advanced range are washed for up to 3 times longer than regular examination gloves and chlorinated on both the inside and outside areas of the cuff to reduce tackiness and improve donning, making the Advanced series the preferred choice for professionals seeking the ideal combination of comfort, dexterity and durability.
