Why Nitrile?

Nitrile is stronger than Latex – It is up to three times more resistant to puncturing. Many medical professionals rely on the strength and durability of Nitrile gloves, and this is especially more important when the person using the gloves is exposed to blood-borne pathogens and diseases and when other environmental contaminants are areas of concern. This is the reason why Nitrile gloves are preferred by EMTs, medical professionals, and laboratory workers.

Nitrile gloves have greater resistance against chemicals – Aside from being physically stronger than Latex, Nitrile gloves are also more resistant to the adverse effects of chemicals, acids, oils, and other substances. Nitrile is highly recommended for use by people working with 67% of chemicals, which is 28% more compared to rubber and Vinyl.

Nitrile gloves are completely devoid of Latex – Aside from being superior in performance in different types of work application and industries, Nitrile disposable gloves are also popular alternatives to Latex in many different professions. It is because it does not trigger Latex allergies in people with sensitivities.

Nitrile gloves have a longer shelf life – You can store more Nitrile gloves without worrying about them getting brittle. Latex gloves have a shelf life shorter than Nitrile.

Nitrile gloves conform to the user’s hands – If you wear the Nitrile gloves longer, your body heat will make the material conform to the shape of your hands, making them fit more comfortably. Nitrile gloves, though not as elastic as Latex, are more elastic compared to Vinyl.

Vinyl-Nitrile Blend Gloves
