    A. Resist Chemicals
    B. Protect against high heat and open flame.
    Explanation
    Atlas gloves are great for protecting against small cuts and punctures, and are minor to medium abrasion resistance.

    Due to their exposed cotton, they are not suited for work with splashing liquids or chemicals, as they absorb and retain the substance. Also, they are not rated for heat resistance and will likely melt if exposed to extreme heat.
