Nitrile gloves versus latex gloves
Since there are so many different kinds of gloves on the market, each with their own qualities and specifics, it can be quitea task to figure out and decide which one is best for you. To make your choice a little easier, we have listed the pros and cons of latex, nitrile and vinyl gloves so you can compare the three of them.
Latex gloves are made out of rubber, a natural material. They are very comfortable, stretchy and strong, and have a perfectfit. They are often referred to as ‘a second skin’. An other advantage is that they are biodegradable. Usually latex glovesare also lightly powdered and are therefore easy to put on and take off. They are often the number one choice for medicalor industrial use because they offer great protection for infectious materials, chemicals or contamination. However, these are not the best option if your skin does not handle latex well.
Nitrile gloves, on the other hand, are the perfect solution in case one might suffer from latex allergies. They are made outof a synthetic rubber, 100% free of allergens, which make these gloves an ideal alternative to latex ones. Nitrile glovestend to mold to your hand providing a great fit. A higher puncture resistance and durability are also main advantages. Thatis why hospitals and other medical institutions like to refer to these gloves as ‘medical grade’, making them the popular choice for medical examinations. Similar to the latex ones, nitrile gloves are also perfect when you need to deal with chemicals. They are affordable, have a long shelf life and you can use them for a long period of time. Contrary to latex gloves however, nitrile gloves are mostly not biodegradable.
A third option is the vinyl glove. These are particularly useful in the food industry and for low risk tasks. Vinyl gloves have a looser fit than the latex and nitrile gloves which means it fits either hand and they are very easy to put on and take off. Out of the three, vinyl gloves are the most inexpensive option.
