Medical grade gloves serve as a crucial barrier for health care workers and protect them from blood borne and transmissible diseases. Gloves are important for health care workers, veterinarians, biotechnologists and associated staff for protection from contamination hazards, biochemical hazards and transmissible diseases. The materials used for construction of gloves are latex, nitrile and vinyl. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages.
Nitrile gloves are manufactured using copolymer nitrile butadiene rubber which is composed of acrylonitrile and butadiene. It is a synthetic alternative to natural rubber latex gloves which are known to induce allergies. Nitrile gloves have a latex-like feel due to vulcanization with sulphur which gives these gloves a rubbery texture. Nitrile gloves are strong, durable and have textured fingertips for better grip.
Latex gloves provide chemical resistance, puncture resistance and have better fit and feel comfortable. However, prolonged use of latex gloves can sometimes cause latex allergies because they are constructed using natural rubber sap.
These disposable gloves have a looser fit and grip, less elasticity and are manufactured using PVC. Vinyl gloves are not biodegradable and utmost care must be taken to dispose them.
