Common Tire Manufacturing Hazards

Find the right MCR Safety product that protects you against these common hazards.

Chemical and Liquid

Manufacturing tires involves a mixture of hundreds of chemicals throughout the manufacturing processes.   Possible exposures include N-nitrosamines, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, solvents, and phthalates.  MCR Safety offers a wide range of chemical resistant gloves for different chemicals encountered.  Be sure to check out our Chemical Permeation Guide for specific chemical breakthrough times.


Exposure to hazardous equipment is a definite concern for workers in this industry.  Loading materials into production equipment and mounting workpieces are examples in Tire Manufacturing.  Wearing gloves with 360-degree protection makes a lot of sense.  Check out our Impact Protection Page for additional information.

Cut and Sense of Touch

Tire manufacturing workers use their hands to handle, feel and touch many objects.  We continue innovating featherweight fibers that provide cut protection and ultimate dexterity for handling the smallest objects workers touch.  Be sure to check out our Cut Protection page for additional information.

Cut and Sharp Objects

Lacerations are always a concern when you’re manipulating any material.  In this industry, using knives to cut camelback and cutting industrial materials for fabrication is when cut protecting gloves need to be worn.  Be sure to check out our Cut Protection page for additional information.

Maintaining a solid grip is essential when placing tires into molds, assembling tire components, mounting tires and positioning rollers that turn ply edges.  MCR Safety’s coated gloves are dipped with premier coatings to ensure you maintain a solid grip.  Be sure to check out our blog "Top Gripping Properties".

Workers are exposed to heat throughout tire manufacturing,  from the mechanics working on hot machines to workers exposed to hot curred rubber.  Sometimes you need to match rubber with rubber, like with our 9687 rubber coated highly heat-resistant and cut-resistant glove.   We’ve written a Heat Resistant Gloves blog to keep you informed!
