There are many brands and types of choices when it comes to disposable gloves. It is hard to determine which glove is the best choice for you.
Which to Choose?
Let’s compare two of the most popular glove choices, Nitrile gloves and Latex gloves. Both have pros and cons, and it really is based on what glove suits your specific needs.
Nitrile Gloves are made of a synthetic rubber. These gloves are puncture resistant and mold to your hand for a great fit. Plus, they are static resistant and reduced slipping and sticking.
Nitrile gloves are often referred to as a medical grade glove. They are the number one choice when needing a latex free alternative. This is a problem that healthcare providers run into with latex allergies on the rise. These gloves are perfect for high-risk situations. They protect and resist against many chemicals and viruses.
They are available in three colors black, blue or white. The benefits of choosing the black or blue gloves because they make it easy to see if the glove has been punctured. They also mask stains whether it’s inks or dyes. Which for some service industries gives a better impression with customers.
They are available lightly powdered or powder free glove options. Nitrile Gloves have a long shelf life, so ordering in bulk is perfect if you are trying to be money conscious.
A variety of industries choose to utilize these gloves including: Automotive, Beauty Salons, Culinary, Food Preparation and Handling, Industrial, Janitorial, Laboratory, Law Enforcement, Security, and Tattoo Parlors.
