Glove Material Comparison
Material - Latex
- Latex material provides a Soft and Comfortable fit.
A low-modulus glove (force required to stretch the glove) which gives a softer, more elastic feel while providing optimal comfort for extended periods of wear.
- High Elasticity and memory allows for a good fit to the user hands providing increased Tactile Sensitivity.
Provides good gripping characteristics for your work situation.
- Latex is available in a broader range of thicknesses for a variety of uses.
Less likely to puncture, tear or leak which is important for barrier protection and durability.
- A good material for high-risks situations, including exposure to blood-borne pathogens or other potentially infectious substances.
- Low Protein Powder-free disposable Latex Gloves can minimize latex-related irritations and allergies.
Material - Nitrile
Material - Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) VINYL
- Vinyl is a synthetic material soft to the touch and comfortable with more of a loose fit.
- There is a lower level of elasticity and durability with vinyl compared to other glove materials.
- Vinyl is a relatively strong material that does well with extended contact of water, foods, oils and commonly used chemicals.
- A practical, economical barrier of protection material for all types of general and low-risk work environment applications that do not involve exposure to blood, body fluids or hazardous chemicals.
