Disposable Gloves


Disposable Gloves

Disposable gloves are an essential item in any healthcare environment. They not only protect healthcare providers and patients from exposure to potentially dangerous microbes, they also help set a precedent of hygiene and care across the industry. While this shouldn’t come as a surprise, what you might not have realized is that disposable gloves aren’t all created equal.

Disposable gloves are generally made from one of three materials: nitrile, latex, or vinyl

These gloves are mainly used across food, healthcare, janitorial services as well as in chemical industries.

In healthcare disposable gloves are worn to prevent cross-contamination between patients and medical staff and are often expected to provide personal protection against chemical splashes and biohazards.They are also used for general hand protection when handling various sensitive things in a medical setting.

Disposable gloves that are used in the healthcare industry are referred to as medical gloves.

Latex Disposable Gloves

Disposable Latex Gloves that are ideal for a number of different applications including use as medical gloves, surgery gloves and food handling gloves.With high levels of flexibility, protection, and comfort, disposable latex gloves are suitable for most medical environments — as long as latex allergies are not an issue.

Which is better latex or non latex gloves?

In general, latex gloves offer the best protection against bacteria and viruses, while synthetic gloves provide better chemical protection. Of the different types of latex-free gloves, nitrile gloves offer a higher degree of protection against viruses, besides the chemical protection they provide.

Vinyl Disposable Gloves

Vinyl gloves are made from PVC, a petroleum-based film. They are less durable than latex and nitrile, and they offer limited protection against chemical or biomedical exposure.

Due to their low cost and low protection levels, vinyl gloves are commonly used in non-hazardous and low-infection environments.

They are also perfectly suited for most medical environments, being exceptionally puncture-resistant and eliminating the risk of latex allergy reactions.

Powdered vs powered-free gloves

It can be difficult to know the difference between powdered and powder-free gloves.

​What Are Powdered Gloves?

Powdered gloves generally include a type of cornstarch, which is designed to improve grip, fast donning and can be used to reduce sweat. They are popular within the healthcare industries due to their simple fast and efficient use.

The Pros of Powdered Gloves?

✔ Powdered design makes donning far easier

✔ More affordable than their powder-free counterparts

✔ More comfortable especially on a hot day

✔ You expect to have to replace your gloves regularly

✔ Reduce sweating as powder soaks up the starch

What Are Powder-Free Gloves?

Non-powdered gloves simply do not include cornstarch. This makes them more skin-friendly, far stronger and a lot more versatile. Non-powdered gloves are better suited to the food and mechanics industries.

The Pros of Powder-Free Gloves

✔ Super strong and durable for tougher industries

✔ More versatile with food, chemical, oil and water resistance

✔ Powder-free design reduces contamination risk (ideal for food use!)

✔ More skin friendly than powdered gloves

✔ High level of grip and dexterity for handling and tricky work
