Disposable gloves are the most widely-used piece of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the medical field, and are essential in forensic, lab, automotive, food handling, cleaning and other industrial applications. It may seem obvious, but gloves are vital to keeping your hands and environment protected from germs, hazardous materials and more. .
The disposable glove material required depends on the application. All gloves keep your hand protected to varying degrees of puncture, chemical, and puncture resistance. In general, thicker gloves sacrifice dexterity at the benefit of puncture and abrasion resistance. Some mechanics prefer to use black nitrile gloves that are single-use, rather than washing reusable mechanic gloves. Workers in food service may benefit from polyethylene's ease of donning while the business benefits from cost effective cross-contamination protection. Whereas Chefs may appreciate a higher quality nitrile glove that won't tear under strenuous tasks. Latex is a natural material that has many of the benefits of nitrile. Chloroprene is recommended for high-risk settings. Vinyl has a lower degree of puncture resistance than latex or nitrile but has the same broad applications. Many medical offices use Pink Exam Gloves made from vinyl, a synthetic latex that won't inflame allergies and is easy to frequently change.
