What Are the Benefits of Nitrile Disposable Gloves?

by Reports Yell on February 03, 2022

Nitrile disposable gloves are often considered the best option available. This blog outlines a few of the main benefits nitrile gloves can offer.

What are nitrile gloves?

Nitrile gloves are made out of nitrile butadiene rubber, a durable synthetic material that is available in varying thicknesses and both powdered and powder-free. are a great alternative to latex gloves and can be used in a variety of applications.

The benefits of nitrile gloves

They are puncture-resistant

Nitrile gloves are known for their durability, and being puncture-resistant is a crucial feature when working with potential contaminants - for example, at Covid-19 testing sites or other medical applications. They are, in fact, three times more puncture-resistant than latex gloves.

They are latex-free                                                   

Nitrile gloves are ideal when latex allergies are a risk or concern. Many medics, tattoo artists, and other professionals involved in direct physical contact with a range of people rely on the latex-free dependability of nitrile gloves. It reduces the risk of accidentally triggering an allergic reaction in a patient or client.

They conform to the shape of your hand

As body heat warms nitrile gloves, they conform closely to the hand for a better, more comfortable fit.  Nitrile gloves are also 50% thicker than standard nitrile gloves, which provides extra durability and resistance to wear and tear or damage. The wearer is able to execute tasks with precision and can move freely.

They are easy to don and doff

Nitrile rubber gloves have a lower resistance to friction, making them easier to don and doff. During the manufacturing process, finishes are applied to the glove which maximises these properties and increases the ease with which users can put on or remove their gloves.
