Nitrile Gloves - Vinyl Gloves
Nitrile gloves are made from a synthetic polymer. They are used in high risk environments where prolonged exposure to blood, body fluids, cleaning solutions and other solutions is of concern. Nitrile has a high tensile strength and better chemical resistance than natural rubber latex.
Vinyl gloves are made from polyvinyl-chloride, a plastic. They are used when there is low risk of infectious contact with direct patient care.
As of January 18, 2017 the FDA has disallowed the sale of powdered gloves (examination and surgical gloves). Please see the products below for alternatives.
