Characteristics and Maintenance Tips for Nitrile Gloves

Introduction of nitrile gloves

Nitrile rubber is produced by emulsion polymerization of butadiene and acrylonitrile. Nitrile gloves have excellent oil resistance, high wear resistance, and good heat resistance. They are made from high-quality nitrile rubber and other additives, and are refined and processed without protein. They are non-allergenic, non-toxic, durable, and have good adhesion. Nitrile gloves are widely used in home chores, electronics, chemicals, aquatic industries, glass, food factories, hospitals, scientific research, and other industries for protection.

Features of nitrile gloves

Nitrile gloves have excellent chemical resistance and can withstand certain acidity and alkalinity. They provide good chemical protection against solvents, petroleum, and other corrosive substances. They also have good physical properties, such as tear resistance, puncture resistance, and friction resistance. Nitrile gloves are comfortable to wear and are designed according to the structure of the human hand, allowing for flexible bending of fingers and palms without affecting blood circulation.

Nitrile gloves do not contain protein and rarely cause skin allergies. They degrade quickly and are easy to handle, which is beneficial to the environment. Nitrile gloves do not contain silicon and have certain anti-static performance, which meets the production needs of the electronics industry. The surface chemical residue of nitrile gloves is low and the particle content is small, making it suitable for strict clean room environments.

Maintenance of nitrile gloves

Nitrile gloves can effectively prevent organic solvents because of their high toughness and elasticity. However, nitrile rubber is not resistant to puncture, so it is necessary to be very careful when using them in tasks that involve frequent contact with liquid chemicals, such as chemical warehouses and ethanol cleaning. When wearing Nitrile gloves, it is recommended to also wear cotton gloves over them to reduce damage and extend the service life.

When wearing nitrile gloves for cleaning, some products may have sharp edges that can easily penetrate the gloves. Once penetrated, the cleaning solution can seep into the gloves through even a small hole, rendering the entire glove useless. Therefore, in addition to paying attention during actual operation, it is also necessary to wear gloves over the nitrile gloves to prevent any punctures.
