Difference between latex gloves and Nitrile and Vinyl gloves.

» ProSalud

The first feature we need to talk about is the difference between powdered gloves and powderless gloves.

Powdered gloves and powder-free gloves

The main difference is that the purpose of the powder, made with corn starch, is simply to facilitate its placement. Even so, powder-free gloves today are easier to put on since they undergo a washing procedure and are later covered with synthetic polymers.

One of the disadvantages of dust is that it is more prone to allergies and creating skin irritations.

Most important characteristics of latex gloves, nitrile gloves and vinyl gloves.

Gloves are governed by three main characteristics that determine which jobs they are most suitable for. The first characteristic is the sensitivity that the glove provides and the sensitive touch that is required for that work. For example, surgical work requires maximum sensitivity.

The second aspect to take into account is allergens, that is, whether the glove is more likely to cause allergies or not.

Finally, the third aspect to take into account is the resistance of the glove.

Latex gloves

Latex gloves are made with natural material and are the most used in the healthcare field because they are, without a doubt, the most sensitive. In addition, they are quite resistant. The only disadvantage is that they are more allergenic than other types of gloves.
