Find the right MCR Safety product that protects you against these common hazards.
Thousands of chemical compounds are used to manufacture paint products like pigments, extenders, binders, additives, epoxies, isocyanates, and solvents. Whenever you're handling paint thinner or solvents (toluene, xylene, ketones, alcohols, esters, and glycol ethers), be sure you're wearing chemical-resistant gloves.
There is no off-season for painters, which means these workers need insulated gloves and winter jackets during the colder months. Have you seen our top-selling Ninja Ice gloves?
Most construction sites require workers to wear steel toe boots. Painters can often get away with wearing comfy sneakers as they work inside. However, there are times when painters need the protection of boots. We offer white steel toe boots to match the white attire painters wear!
Sanding off old paint increases the amount of dust in the air. A nice pair of sealed eyewear or goggles makes a big difference in keeping eyes protected. We do offer dust masks and KN95 respirators. However, it’s important to note, MCR Safety’s dust masks are not designed for use around paint. Only specially-designated paint respirators should be used, and these are not a form of PPE that MCR Safety stocks. We Protect People, which is why we remind you to use the proper mask type for your painting project!
MCR Safety carries a wide array of apparel, including Henley t-shirts and long sleeve hi-vis shirts. We also offer white Tyvek® coveralls and shoe covers to protect your body and clothes from paint.
It may not seem like an immediate hazard, but painters use their hands a lot for drywall taping, sanding, and painting. When hand pain and fatigue starts to kick in, people start making mistakes, and those hands can face dangers! Thin protective gloves are a painter's best friend. And check out the drywall gloves we have to offer!
Heat-stripping guns can reach up to 1,200°F! Heavy-duty leather gloves offer excellent heat protection.
Skin irritation from spills, splashes, and sprays is all too common for painters. Dermatitis and skin rashes can occur when harsh or caustic elements come into contact with the skin. Even if you're wearing a traditional work glove, it makes sense to wear it over the top of a disposable glove. That way, the lightweight disposable keeps the paint or liquids from touching your hands.
Painters may find themselves working outside and having the sun glaring down on them, which means the body needs covered up with cool, breathable fabrics. Polarized safety glasses also help minimize the glare and keep the eyes protected!
