Nitrile gloves are the leading alternative to latex because of their hypoallergenic formula. Wearing proper protective gear is essential for healthcare workers, along with those in the food, cleaning, and mechanical industries.
For those who experience skin irritation or other complications from latex, this material is a practical choice that protects against chemical exposure. Pure nitrile gloves are not as responsive as latex, but they are durable and offer long-lasting protection.
Nitrile gloves are made from a synthetic material that is a combination of acrylonitrile and butadiene. It’s not only incredibly strong but also resistant to oil, fuel, and other chemicals and solvents, making them ideal for lab workers.
Nitrile powder-free gloves offer abrasion resistance and are best suited for work environments where there is a risk of puncturing the glove with sharp objects because nitrile is a stronger, higher quality material than latex. It can protect your hands from cuts, bruises, and puncture wounds.
Some nitrile gloves are designed to provide extra grip, which may be useful in certain industries. These gloves feature a textured finish on the palm and the fingertips of the glove.
