We are aware of your concerns of vinyl as material, and provide all vinyl gloves completely DEHP/DOP-free . We offer vinyl gloves industrial and examination grade, and in "stretch" vinyl, which closely resembles the fit and feel of latex.
Vinyl gloves are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a petroleum-based film, which is non-biodegradable. The raw material is taken through a polymerization process with an end product that is hard and rigid. Then a procedure is carried where a plasticizing chemical is added to make the material flexible for molding into gloves. Thus, the property of vinyl gloves make them less durable and elastic than latex and nitrile. When vinyl gloves are stretched, the individual molecules separate and the integrity of the protective barrier is compromised.
They are usually used for short time and preferred in fields where loose fit and ease of use are important, but where durability and protection are less of a concern. These include food preparation, cleaning, medical assistance and care, manufacturing and processing, painting and dyeing fields.
