A lot of people confuse about which disposable gloves are the best, or which gloves they should be using in the food, medical and cleaning industries.
So the Pidegree here would like to teach you some general knowledge.
Nitrile gloves are made by a synthetic material that is made to mimic natural rubber latex. Nitrile has been around for some time, but only recently it’s become more affordable, which explains why it's gaining popularity throughout medical, food and cleaning industries. Nitrile has a higher puncture resistance than any other glove material. Nitrile also has a better chemical resistance than Latex or Vinyl gloves.
Latex gloves are made of Natural rubber, natural origin material (from rubber tree). Natural rubber latex is the oldest and most universally recognized disposable glove material. Latex gloves protect hands from acetones, thinners, and most water-soluble acids, alkalis, salts, and ketones.But now many hospitals and clinics have begun replacing their latex gloves with nitrile gloves.
