Nitrile & Latex Gloves

Medical gloves are disposable gloves used during medical examinations and procedures to help prevent cross-contamination between caregivers and patients.[1] Medical gloves are made of different polymers including latexnitrile rubberpolyvinyl chloride and neoprene; they come unpowdered, or powdered with cornstarch to lubricate the gloves, making them easier to put on the hands

There are two types of medical gloves available, exam gloves and surgical gloves. Each glove is meant to serve specific tasks while protecting the skin and preventing cross-contamination. Disposable medical gloves are available in nitrile, latex and vinyl materials.

Vinyl gloves, which are made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride), are usually the cheapest latex-free gloves. However, many prefer to use higher-end gloves such as nitrile gloves. … In general, latex gloves offer the best protection against bacteria and viruses, while synthetic gloves provide better chemical protection

Nitrile has a higher puncture resistance than any other glove material. Nitrile also has a better chemical resistance than Latex or Vinyl glovesLatex comes directly from rubber trees. The answer is that Nitrile is a stronger higher quality glove than Latex

Nitrile gloves are much more resistant than Vinyl gloves, but more expensive. The biggest differences are in elasticity and mechanical resistance: for this reason vinyl gloves are less sensitive and break more easily, even with a simple finger press

Description

Difference between Nitrile & Latex gloves

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VINYL GLOVES AND NITRILE DISPOSABLE GLOVES?

Nitrile gloves are much more resistant than Vinyl gloves, but more expensive.

The biggest differences are in elasticity and mechanical resistance: for this reason vinyl gloves are less sensitive and break more easily, even with a simple finger press.

Even the glove’s porosity is less controllable during production, thus reducing the protection against nitrile gloves when in contact with body fluids and / or chemicals.

Vinyl having no “accelerators” (present in nitrile production compounds) has less chance of causing IV type hypersensitivity reactions or contact allergies.
