Nitrile Gloves are the main type of glove manufactured and used for carrying out hand jobs that require finesse. These types of jobs include hospital related procedures and manufacturing tasks among uses in many other areas. So what differentiates these type of gloves from common gloves made from latex and vinyl?
They are made from synthetic tri-polymer, also referred to as phenolic compounds, after a heating process (vulcanization) where sulfur is incorporated. This gives the end product a rubbery feel similar to that of natural rubber. Nitrile gloves are distinctly different from other types of gloves.
Here are some of the properties and advantages of nitrile gloves.
Nitrile gloves are typically more expensive. However, the durability and safety associated with them outweighs this apparent disadvantage. In the past, fitting and snugness with nitrile gloves was an issue. Today, manufacturing techniques have tremendously improved and the gloves are arguably as good as those made from latex.
