Objective: To evaluate the influence of different types of gloves on curing time of the addition silicone.

Materials and Methods: A dense paste of the addition silicone was manipulated without gloves and by three different types of gloves (latex, vinyl and nitrile), then was molded a metal matrix and after curing time the mold was submitted to compression test to verify if the surface of silicone was marked after the curing time.

Results: After the curing time established by manufacturer, the mold manipulated with latex gloves did not have cure. The molds obtained with manipulation of silicone without gloves, as well as vinyl and nitrile gloves did have cure.

Conclusion: The vinyl and nitrile gloves did not interfere on curing time of the addition silicone tested.
