Vinyl Gloves are formed from synthetic plastics and chemicals, specifically polyvinyl chloride. Vinyl gloves are allergy-free, making them an alternative to latex glove use. Slightly thicker and less flexible than latex, they provide a lower level of tactile precision. Possess anti-static qualities, making them ideal for certain industries. Vinyl gloves also do not fit closely, since there is less elasticity and resilience in the material. May be lightly powdered for easy donning. Suitable for multi-purpose use and tasks that do not require high levels of tactile feedback.
- Lower elasticity, looser fit
- Less expensive
- Lower protection against hazardous substances
- Possess Anti-static qualities
- Ideal for short-term, low-risk applications
