Finger cots are a great alternative to wearing full gloves yet provide terrific protection against sharp objects, contamination caused by direct contact with fingers and electrostatic discharge. Latex finger cots are common general purpose finger cots used in electronic assembly, medical, and pharma manufacturing. Nitrile finger cots have more natural anti-static properties that make them useful in cleanroom and semi-conductor manufacturing. Regardless of the material, finger cots should be comfortable and aid in the task at hand.
What are finger cots used for?
Protective finger cots, also called finger condoms or finger gloves, are ideal for handling small parts. Nurses may use finger cots to apply ointment to a minor wound and reduce the risk of infection. Sturdy and durable finger cots must be thick enough to handle industrial manufacturing while protecting the user's fingers from harm.
If you apply an ointment then your skin actually absorbs the ointment. This may be a problem when applying medicines. To prevent absorbing medications not intended for you, finger cots can be used to apply medicine to animals.
