Nitrile gloves are gloves made from synthetic rubber, that are worn over the hands. Due to their resilient qualities, these gloves are widely used in a large range of medical settings, food preparation, industrial and other high risk work environments.
Nitrile gloves are high quality and stronger and therefore protect the user from infectious agents and most chemicals that cannot be withstood by latex or vinyl gloves.
Nitrile is resistant to tears and rips compared with other alternative gloves. They offer comfort to the user and are thin enough for use in delicate tasks, even after long, extended periods of time.
Nitrile gloves are disposable gloves, ideal for wearing once and then disposing off in a suitable waste bin. Being disposable any risk of cross-contamination is considerably reduced by wearing these gloves.
These disposable gloves are also latex free, ideal for minimising any allergic reactions; especially for those sensitive to latex proteins and nitrile gloves are mostly powder free also to assist the user in getting their gloves on and off.
