Disposable gloves Vinyl, Latex, Neoprene
Characteristics and advantages of disposable and/or chemical protective gloves
Disposable nitrile (NBR) gloves are supple, elastic, puncture-resistant, durable and approved for contact with food. Gloves that are free of vulcanization accelerators are also available.
Neoprene is soft, puncture resistant and durable.
Latex/natural rubber (NR) is soft, wear resistant and provides a good grip in a dry working environment.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC/Vinyl) is soft and can be used for thick and thin gloves.
Polyethylene (PE) is ideal for thin disposable gloves and is approved for food contact. PE has very limited protective properties.
Butyl rubber (IIR) is soft and protects where other rubber materials are not effective.
Laminates are used in chemical protective gloves and protect against a wide range of chemicals, but the comfort of wearing them is very limited.
Viton is used in chemical protective gloves and is effective against aromatics and solvents.
Polyvinyl alcohol (PVAL) is used in chemical protective gloves and protects against most organic compounds.
