For low-risk situations, vinyl gloves are an ideal choice. They are more affordable than nitrile or latex gloves and offer a temporary barrier against bacteria and pathogens.
Vinyl gloves are multipurpose and can be used for many industries and tasks. They are a suitable choice for food handling, first aid training, and low-risk interactions with germs or bacteria. Many vinyl glove types are powder-free and are the top choice for handling non-hazardous materials. Vinyl gloves are also anti-static, making them suitable for handling electronics.
Vinyl gloves are made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a petroleum-based synthetic monomer used for making plastic materials. Vinyl gloves are completely latex-free and have an extremely low incidence of allergic reactions among users.
These gloves provide a looser fit than latex or nitrile gloves, which is partially why they are unsuitable for high-risk or surgical environments. Vinyl also offers less breathability, so your hands are likely to sweat if they remain inside the glove for long periods. You should not use vinyl gloves for handling chemicals or highly infectious materials.
