Choosing the right material Disposable gloves are available in a wide variety of materials to provide the best combination of protection, dexterity and cost for different applications. Whether you’re working with food or in a critical lab environment, we have a solution for you.
Nitrile gloves are made out of synthetic rubber and are ideal when superior chemical resistance is a requirement. This is why nitrile gloves are among the preferred choices for industrial applications such as the automotive, chemical and safety,
janitorial and sanitation industries. These are Latex-free gloves which is the preferred synthetic alternative in the medical industry.
Superior puncture resistance
Three to five times more puncture resistant than latex
Safe for extended use
Recommended for: Automotive, chemical and safety, janitorial, and sanitation industries.
Latex gloves are more elastic than nitrile gloves and feature better puncture resistance than vinyl gloves. Medical/exam grade latex gloves are best suited for applications that are at risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens and other environmental contaminants such as the medical and dental industry. Industrial grade latex gloves are best suited for applications that require contact with chemicals and solvents, such as the automotive, chemical and safety, and janitorial and sanitation industries.
Best fit and feel with high chemical and puncture resistance
Vinyl gloves helps reduce allergic reactions, such as latex allergies, and can be used for activities that require frequent changes of gloves. Medical/exam grade vinyl glovesare latex free and offer superb strength, durability, and barrier protection against blood borne pathogens. They are also FDA approved for medical use in industries such as healthcare, dental, childcare, and senior care. Industrial grade vinyl is best suited for food service, plumping, janitorial, agriculture, paint, and other industrial applications.
Polyethylene gloves are designed for light duty tasks and work environments that require changing gloves often. Disposable poly gloves are the most economical choice when dealing with food service and food preparation, not only because they are powder free and latex free, but also because they are packaged to take up minimal space.
Extra lightweight gloves ideal for short term uses
Antimicrobial Gloves Antimicrobial Disposable Gloves contain a bacteria destroying agent which is integrated into the gloves during the manufacturing process - not sprayed on - so it won't crack or wear off and lasts the life of the product. The ever-present agent penetrates the microorganism cells and not only stops them from multiplying but also kills them by disrupting the metabolism.
Prevents the spread of bacteria and potential infections
Smooth finish, polyurethane coated for easy glove changes
Recommended for: Food service, Jan/San, beauty and salon
Powdered vs Powder Free In addition to material, latex, vinyl, and nitrile gloves often come with a choice of being powdered or powder free. Dry lubricants in powdered gloves such as cornstarch and silicone, makes putting the gloves on easier and to prevent them from sticking.
Added with cornstarch making the gloves easier to put on
