    Disposable Nitrile Gloves

    Nitrile is basically a synthetic reprocessed version of latex. Nitrile is a synthetic co-polymer, formed through acrylonitrile and butadiene combining.  Nitrile gloves begin their lifecycle as rubber from rubber trees. They are then transformed into latex rubber.  After they are turned into latex rubber they are again reprocessed until they turn into the nitrile compound material. The extra processing removes all latex proteins.  The reprocessing and removal of all latex proteins means that nitrile material also has a lower allergy rate than latex.

    Black Nitrile Disposable Gloves are the preferred disposable gloves for mechanics as nitrile gloves are stronger then latex gloves. They are also more resistant to chemicals, have higher puncture resistance. Nitrile is also stronger than latex – in fact, it’s up to 3 times more puncture resistant. Although you give up some strength and flexibility with nitrile, it’s much more puncture-resistant than natural rubber gloves. Most mechanics need a strong, dexterous, chemical resistant glove and as a result the nitrile glove is a perfect option.

    Nitrile gloves last a long time, however like any natural product they will eventually degrade. While an exact shelf life time period is dependent on what specific material the gloves are made of and storage facilities, a general rule of thumb is up to five years for disposable nitrile gloves. To ensure your box of nitrile gloves lasts its lifetime, make sure that you store them out of direct sunlight, and out of the heat.

    Historically, powder assisted in wearing the disposable glove (getting the glove on), but nowadays there are different types of processing,  including “chlorination”, which has made the glove satin and therefore make it easier to put on even in the absence of powder. In recent years consumers of disposable gloves are gradually shifting from the use of pre-powdered gloves to the use of gloves powder free. The reasons for this trend are numerous but are mainly linked to the fact that powder often causes allergic reactions, which in some sectors may represent a critical element. Smith & ARROW gloves are powder free.

     

    It is important to remember nothing is impermeable forever. Nitrile material does have a higher chemical resistance rate compared to latex material, however some strong grade chemicals may pass through. However for an everyday work glove, disposable nitrile gloves are a good choice for hand protection against common chemicals.

    Yes, Nitrile gloves are waterproof. Nitrile is derived from rubber so it is naturally waterproof. Smith & ARROW’s nitrile gloves also have strong chemical resistance.

    Nitrile is waterproof, grease proof, oil proof and most importantly 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, however can also be used for mechanical work and general purpose duties.

    Nitrile gloves are made out of a synthetic rubber, and are an ideal alternative when latex allergies are of concern. Compared to latex, nitrile gloves are the superior glove when it comes to puncture resistance. Nitrile gloves have characteristics of mechanical strength and are chemically superior to latex gloves. They maintain good elasticity, always very much appreciated in disposable gloves, as it gives sensitivity and ergonomics. Nitrile disposable gloves are also suitable for contact with various types of food and are increasingly used for handling foodstuffs.

    Nitrile gloves are therefore preferred for those jobs where greater mechanical and chemical resistance is needed, as well as for those who are allergic to natural latex proteins.

     

    Nitrile has a higher puncture resistance than any other glove material, and has a better chemical resistance than latex. Nitrile gloves have higher chemical resistance to latex gloves and they maintain good elasticity, allowing sensitivity and dexterity. Nitrile disposable gloves are also suitable for contact with various types of food and are increasingly used for handling foodstuffs.

    Nitrile gloves are therefore preferred for those jobs where greater mechanical and chemical resistance is needed, as well as for those who are allergic to natural latex proteins.
