Subject: Gloves for Phenol - Chloroform

All -
We use a viton-butyl glove (about 12 mils thick)  for handling this 
mixture, but some researchers state that they are too bulky for the type 
of work they do.

Is anyone aware of a lighter weight alternative?  As a point of 
reference, exam type gloves are around 4 - 6 mils thick.
