TIME: 2020-12-04 FROM: Intco Medical
When deciding between latex, nitrile and vinyl gloves…it can be a little confusing trying to determine which type of glove is the ideal choice. Let’s take a closer look at the attributes and benefits of each type of glove.

Latex Gloves

Latex gloves are natural material, made out of rubber.  They are a popular choice of protective glove for medical or industrial use.  The primary reason people would choose an alternative to latex is because many people suffer from latex allergies.  When allergy is not a concern, latex does have a slight advantage with comfort and dexterity over nitrile gloves.

Attributes include:
Fit like a second skin
Have a high level of touch sensitivity
Are good for wearing for an extended amount of time
Work well for high-risk situations involving infectious material
Are lightly powdered, making it easier to put on
Are very elastic and strong

Are biodegradable

Nitrile Gloves

Nitrile gloves are made out of a synthetic rubber, and are an ideal alternative when latex allergies are of concern.   Nitrile gloves are the superior glove when it comes to puncture resistance.  Nitrile gloves are often referred to as “medical grade.”  Before gloves can be marketed to hospitals and medical institutions, they must undergo a series of tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure their durability.

Attributes include:
Are most puncture resistant
Have ahigh level of sensitivity
Mold to your hand for a great fit
Are good for wearing an extended amount of time
Work well for high-risk situations involving infectious material
Resist many chemicals
Have a long shelf life
Are available in blue or black to help identify if the glove has been punctured

Vinyl Gloves

Vinyl gloves are a popular choice for the food industry and situations where high levels of durability and protection are less of a priority.  While they may be less durable, they are the less expensive option.
