Choosing the best disposable gloves for you
When choosing disposable gloves there are various factors to consider. Solutions Plus Outlet offers three Nitrile gloves, latex gloves, and vinyl gloves.
Latex gloves are made of natural rubber and offer the highest comfort flexibility and fit. Latex gloves comfortable fit make these gloves a sufficient choice for tactile tasks. Latex gloves protect against bacteria and viruses and, therefore, can be used by individuals to keep their hand's bacteria and virus free.
One downfall of Latex gloves is that latex allergies are becoming increasingly popular. At Solutions Plus Outlet, we carry white latex gloves in sizes small to extra large.
Nitrile gloves are the leading latex alternative. These gloves are environmentally friendly and highly durable and comfortable. However, when compared to latex gloves they're often seen as less flexible and elastic.
Nitrile gloves are highly resistant to chemicals making them an efficient alternative for individuals who handle hazardous chemicals.
These gloves are also suitable for medical environments, protecting individuals from viruses and bacteria. Their durability and puncture-resistant material make them an ideal safe alternative. At Solution Plus, we sell both black and blue nitrile gloves in all sizes.
Vinyl Gloves are also referred to as synthetic gloves because they are made of synthetic material. These gloves are cost-efficient and comfortable; however, are less effective when protecting against viruses and bacteria.
These gloves are a great option for individuals who need protection against chemicals and biohazard materials. At Solutions Plus Outlet we carry both white and blue vinyl gloves in all sizes.
Powdered or Non-Powdered?
Powdered Gloves reduce friction and sticking in gloves, making them easy to put on and take off. They are also more resistant to tears and absorb more sweat than non-powdered.
One downfall of using these gloves is that they leave residue on your hands and applications. Their corn starch lining also increases the risk of allergic reactions. These gloves are not recommended for food settings as the cross-contamination with the powder poses a risk.
These gloves do not leave a messy residue on hands or equipment. Non-powdered gloves are useful in food applications because they are not lined with corn starch and do not cause cross-contamination.
These gloves are often seen as more difficult to put on and remove and absorb less sweat.
