What Makes Nitrile Gloves Stand Out in Different Work Environments?

For the general public, disposable gloves may not make much difference in terms of materials, thickness, color, etc. If they can provide safety protection when used, they are sufficient. However, in reality, disposable gloves not only have safety protection functions, but also need to consider different regulations.

Understanding nitrile gloves

Nitrile rubber is produced by emulsion polymerization of butadiene (H2C=CH-CH=CH2) and acrylonitrile (H2C=CH-CN). It is mainly produced by low-temperature emulsion polymerization and has the properties of both homopolymers. Nitrile gloves are widely used in factories such as household chores, electronics, chemicals, aquatic products, glass, and food, as well as in industries such as hospitals and research.

Regulations for nitrile gloves in different work environments

In different work environments, the requirements for disposable gloves such as materials and thickness may differ. For example, in the production of meat products, nitrile gloves that can directly contact with the food industry are required. Under many standards, different gloves have different abilities to withstand hazardous substances. For example, the safety protection function of nitrile rubber for materials such as benzaldehyde and hydroxy-tert-butyl ether is less, so it is not suitable for use. Therefore, the premise conditions for the use of disposable gloves are different or differentiated.

Safety factor is crucial for glove use. In some work areas with potential safety hazards, using brightly colored gloves can have warning effects. Nitrile gloves are suitable for such industries because of their wide range of color choices or personal preferences. Nitrile gloves have excellent flexibility and conformity. After applying low-sensitivity professionalism, low-sensitive nitrile gloves are a reasonable choice for people who are allergic to rubber insulation boards.

With the expanding range of applications, the types of various safety and protective gloves will become more detailed. The quality standards of machinery and equipment will also be higher. Because of its excellent characteristics and gradually improved and developed professionalism, nitrile gloves will be used by more and more people.
