Maintaining a safe workplace, your employees will feel confident during their day, and your guests will feel comfortable during their stay.
A high quality alternative to rubber latex gloves, Nitrile Gloves offer a flexibility, resilience and tensile strength similar to latex. Nitrile is a synthetic material more durable than either latex or vinyl. In addition, nitrile does not prompt any allergic reactions, making nitrile gloves ideal for people with latex allergies. Nitrile gloves are suitable for protection from contamination, infection, and petroleum-based substances.
Poly gloves are typically made from two sheets of polyethylene film. The layers are seamed and sealed with heat to create a unified glove. The polymer material is thin and less expensive to manufacture. These gloves do not fit tightly or conform to the hand, so they offer less dexterity and precision. They are powder free, yet they allow easy donning and doffing. Poly gloves are ideal for applications where employees switch gloves often, such as sandwich shop workers who use a new pair of gloves for each customer.
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.
Latex Gloves are made from natural rubber latex. The latex is an organic component derived from processing rubber plant material. Latex gloves are flexible, yet remain close-fitting due to their resilience. This provides for a more consistent fit over time. Latex gloves also offer a greater degree of tactile sensitivity, allowing for an increase in digital precision. Suitable for protection against contamination and/or infectious substances. Note: CAN CAUSE AN ALLERGIC REACTION for some individuals. Can be non-powdered or powdered for easy donning.
