Synthetic rubber is used to make disposable nitrile gloves, which means that nitrile gloves do not contain latex proteins. This makes them the first choice for patients with latex allergy. However, if the wearer is not sensitive to allergies, the user may still be exposed to someone with latex allergy, so switching to nitrile is still a good idea - for example, nursing staff may not have latex Allergy, but one of the patients may be.
The puncture resistance of nitrile gloves is also 3 times higher than that of latex gloves. This makes it the preferred glove when there is a risk of exposure to blood pathogens or other environmental contaminants. They are often referred to as medical grades, which means they have undergone a series of tests to prove that they are suitable for use in these environments. They are commonly used in laboratories, hospitals, and dentists as well as in care settings, but they are also used in the automotive market, where more puncture-resistant nitrile gloves are used to protect engine oils and engine oils.
Nitrile gloves also have excellent chemical resistance to other disposable gloves. This is because nitrile rubber has better chemical resistance, acid resistance and oil resistance than chemical natural rubber.
Nitrile gloves also have no powder, which further reduces the risk of allergens and handling of messy powders. Even if the hands are wet, wearing gloves can make the gloves easier to wear and fall off. These make these gloves very useful in food environments where gloves need to be changed frequently. Some nitrile gloves are double-chlorinated on the inside to provide a smooth coating for the gloves, which allows the gloves to be worn when the user wets their hands.
Due to the use of synthetic rubber nitrile rubber gloves not only for strength and durability, but also with increased flexibility, making them the gloves of choice when flexibility and sensitivity are required. These gloves are shaped into a hand shape, are comfortable to wear and reduce hand fatigue, and nitrile gloves are also less frictional, which means that these gloves can be worn longer than other gloves.
Another advantage of nitrile is that because it is a man-made substance, its price is more stable than latex because it is not affected by climate and weather changes, and when Malaysia's monsoon prevents harvesting of natural rubber.
Nitrile gloves also have a longer shelf life than other forms of disposable gloves, which means less waste. They can also choose micro-texture finishes to give their gloves a wet or dry-use non-slip finish.
In 2009, nitrile rubber accounted for only 22% of the total production of latex and nitrile gloves. Nitrile production has grown over the past eight years and now accounts for 50% of latex and nitrile production. We predict that with the advantages of gloves in many industries, the trend will continue rapidly.
