What does nitrile gloves mean?
A nitrile glove is a synthetic glove which exhibits rubber-like characteristics. It has much of the same flexibility, tensile strength, and durability as a latex glove. Nitrile gloves are also protein-free and allergy-free. These gloves are a great alternative to the latex glove for people with latex allergies.
What are nitrile gloves used for?
Nitrile is waterproof, greaseproof, oil proof. What’s more, chemical resistant to a range of common chemicals and substances. Nitrile gloves are also commonly used in the medical industry due to their high puncture resistance, and dexterous strength.
What do nitrile gloves protect against?
Nitrile gloves protect against most chemicals and infectious agents. Neoprene gloves protect against most solvents, oils, and mild corrosive materials. Avoid latex gloves as many people are allergic or develop allergies to this material.
What is the difference between latex and nitrile gloves?
Nitrile is more puncture resistant:
Latex does little to protect the skin in contrast with the puncture resistance achieved by nitrile gloves. Whereas latex can rupture when used too roughly or by snagging on a piece of equipment. Nitrile is more durable and thus achieves a higher level of barrier protection.
When should you not use nitrile gloves?
- Rips or punctures before and after each use.
- Prior contamination.
- Signs of degradation (change in color or texture)
Can you reuse nitrile gloves?
Nitrile gloves are designed NOT to be reused actually. But if you’re careful about how you pull them off, it’s possible to get a couple of uses out of them.
Can you disinfect nitrile gloves?
Nitrile gloves are excellent for chemical resilience to ethanol and isopropyl alcohol. Evidence suggests that cleansing latex-gloved hands with an alcohol-based hand rub solution is effective in removing microorganisms, with hand contamination rates increasing only after 9~10 cycles of cleansing.
Can nitrile gloves be washed?
- We recommend washing your nitrile gloves or PCV gloves in a sink using mild laundry detergent or dishwashing soap.
- Do NOT use bleach or solvents as these oxidizing agents can cause discoloration.
- We recommend air-drying your gloves to prevent any material shrinkage and maintain proper sizing.
