Candle-making is a fun and rewarding hobby that has gained popularity in recent years. However, it’s important to prioritize safety when working with hot wax and chemicals. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the recommended disposable personal protective equipment (PPE) for making candles.

Disposable Gloves

First and foremost, it’s essential to wear disposable gloves when making candles. Disposable gloves protect your hands from melting wax and any candle dye that may be present during the candle-making process. It’s important to choose gloves made of durable material and that fit snugly to your hands for maximum safety during candle DIY. Tronex disposable nitrile gloves are a great option, as they are resistant to chemicals and provide excellent grip.

Face Masks

Wearing a disposable mask is also highly recommended to prevent inhaling any harmful fumes released by the wax. When wax is heated, it can release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can be harmful to your health. A mask that fits securely over your nose and mouth ensures optimal protection. Tronex disposable PPE face masks and N95 respirators provide optimal protection and durability while retaining proper fit and comfort. Each is precision crafted in our state-of-the-art ISO 9001-certified factories to meet or exceed all industry standards for safety and quality assurance.
