Nitrile gloves are a type of disposable glove made of synthetic rubber. They contain no latex proteins and offer excellent resistance to wear and tears. Nitrile gloves are more puncture resistant than many other types of rubber gloves and can be used to offer superior resistance to many types of chemicals. They are often considered to be one of the the strongest types of disposable glove and are generally safe for people who are allergic to latex.
Unlike other disposable gloves, nitrile gloves have low resistance to friction and are very easy to slide on. As with some other types of disposable gloves, however, powder such as cornstarch may be added in order to make putting on the gloves as easy as possible. Nitrile gloves come in a variety of sizes to fit all hands, from extra small to extra large. They can be made in a variety of textures, cuff lengths and thickness.
These gloves are popular for their high degree of flexibility and superior solvent resistance. They are resistant to many oils and some acids, making nitrile gloves a good choice for many manufacturing environments. Nitrile gloves should not be stored under excessive light or heat, however, as that can make the rubber disintegrate more rapidly.
