What is the difference between Disposable Nitrile Gloves and disposable latex gloves?

During the epidemic period, disposable gloves are essential protective tools in our life. They can effectively prevent diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which disposable gloves to wear depends on the type of work, because gloves used for personal protection are made of many different materials. Some apply to chemical laboratories, while others apply to medical workers.

Nitrile and latex are the two most common materials for making disposable gloves. Nitrile gloves and latex gloves are lightweight and elastic gloves, which can protect the wearer from direct contact with viruses, germs and other pollutants, so as to protect emergency personnel and medical service providers from diseases, germs and other pollutants. They can also prevent foodborne diseases and skin irritation caused by household cleaning, as well as the spread of infectious diseases. Let’s see the difference between Disposable Nitrile Gloves and disposable latex gloves!

1. Material difference

Disposable nitrile gloves are a kind of chemical synthetic materials, which are made of acrylonitrile and butadiene. After special process treatment and formula improvement, the air permeability and comfort are close to latex gloves, and will not produce any skin allergy. Nitrile gloves are developed in recent years. During production, they can reach grade 100 and 1000 after cleaning. Disposable latex gloves are also called rubber gloves. Latex is a natural material, and natural latex is a biosynthetic product.

2. Classification and difference

Latex gloves have common type and powder free purification type, as well as the skid resistance of smooth and pitted surface. Nitrile gloves have palm pitted surface anti-skid and overall pitted surface anti-skid, which are generally powder free.

3. Anti allergy

Latex gloves contain protein, which is easy to produce or allergic reaction to people with allergic constitution. Nitrile gloves do not contain protein, amino compounds and other harmful substances, and rarely produce allergy. On the other hand, nitrile gloves are more durable and resistant to puncture and chemical corrosion.

4. Degradability

Latex gloves and nitrile gloves can be degraded, easy to handle and will not pollute the environment.

5. Puncture resistance

The toughness and wear resistance of latex gloves are not as good as those of nitrile gloves. The puncture resistance of nitrile gloves is three to five times higher than that of latex. When sharp instruments need to be used in some work areas, such as dentists, nitrile gloves can be used, which will be safer.

The above is the difference between Disposable Nitrile Gloves and disposable latex gloves, which can be selected according to their own needs. Guangdong linyue Health Technology Co., Ltd. focuses on the production, sales promotion of plastic gloves and the R & D and production of scientific and health products, including nitrile gloves, PE gloves, PVC gloves, mixed nitrile gloves and latex gloves. It is widely used in inspection, nursing, scientific and technological products, catering services, family work and other fields. The Disposable Nitrile hand and disposable latex gloves mentioned above are the main products of the company, which are comfortable to stick to the hand, powder free and tasteless, antifouling and oil-proof.
