Abstract [en]

Thousands of the Swedish population suffer from eczema which is an inflam- mation of the skin. Hand eczema is a big problem while washing the dishesbecause the skin is exposed to huge amounts of water and washing-up liquid.Solely using dishwashing gloves doesn’t always solve the problem, the humidenvironment that arises in the glove can irritate the skin and exacerbatethe eczema. This report will consider the material choices of a dishwashingglove consisting of multi-layers. Horizontal and vertical wicking and absorp-tion tests were done to investigate the moisture management properties ofdifferent materials. The sanitary pads and a cotton fabric named Allväv Eko,showed the highest absorbency. A polyester fabric named Per.-Elastic andthe sanitary pad had the highest wicking properties. The suggested outerlayer was neoprene because it is waterproof. Since the results indicated ahigh absorbency in cotton, this was the proposed absorption layer. Lastly,polyester was proposed as an inner layer because it has shown to have a highmoisture permeability. Suggestions to future studies is to analyse the multi-layers in combination with each other as properties of different materials canbehave different together.
