Protective gloves for all needs
Also available are Powder-Free Vinyl Gloves in Boxes of 100 and Powder-Free Nitrile Gloves in Boxes of 100. Wearing the appropriate safety gloves is important, especially during this era of Covid-19. Protective gloves not only help to keep our hands clean but they also minimize the chances of us coming into contact with germs and bacteria that can make us ill.
You may be wondering what the difference is between these two types of protective gloves, so here is a helpful explainer to help you choose the right type of glove for your needs. When choosing between vinyl gloves and nitrile gloves, here is what you should know:
Nitrile gloves are made from nitrile material (a synthetic rubber copolymer of butadiene and acrylonitrile). Nitrile is a by-product of petroleum. This type of disposable glove is a top choice for people with a latex allergy. Nitrile does not cause any allergic reactions, unlike latex, which is derived from natural rubber.
Why choose nitrile gloves?
Nitrile gloves can offer more protection for workers that come into contact with chemicals each day. Nitrile rubber is more resistant to cleaning chemicals, acids and oils than latex gloves. However, these gloves are not as flexible nor as strong as latex gloves.
In general, nitrile gloves are four times more puncture resistant than standard latex gloves, are highly durable and have a long shelf life. Users say they are comfortable to wear as they mould around the hands for a better fit.
These gloves can deliver high performance across a wide range of applications and are particularly good for people whose work may expose them to potential pathogens. These are a good choice for those involved in cleaning your workplace where they may be cleaning up contaminated surfaces used by asymptomatic staff.
Why choose vinyl gloves?
Vinyl gloves are a cheaper alternative to nitrile and latex gloves. The gloves are soft and comfortable to wear. If you are looking for a glove that gives exemplary resistance to liquids such as oil and grease, then these are a good fit.
Vinyl gloves are popular in the food preparation industry and provide a convenient solution for short-term protection as they are made to be disposed of daily. This is why they are not as durable as nitrile gloves as they are not designed for long-term use.
They are also popular because despite being made of synthetic latex rubber, they don’t pose the same allergy risk to wearers as standard latex gloves made from natural latex rubber.
