Nitrile disposable gloves are a popular alternative to latex gloves in many industries. In fact, they are a key driver of growth in the industrial disposable glove market, particularly in applications that require contact with harsh chemicals and solvents, such as the automotive industry.
One of the more immediate benefits of these gloves is they are latex free, which is a benefit for both users and consumers who come into contact with the gloves. In a tattoo shop, for example, an artist may not have a latex allergy. However, some customers might, and nitrile gloves protect these customers from having an allergic reaction.
What makes these gloves so appealing to the automotive, safety and other industries? The answer: a durable synthetic rubber, nitrile.
What is nitrile?
Unlike latex disposable gloves, which are made from natural rubber, nitrile gloves are synthetic. Nitrile is short for acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber. This material is created from monomers – acrylonitrile and butadiene – which are molecules that are bonded together.
Nitrile gloves come in a wide variety of colors, which can help to differentiate sizing and prevent cross contamination. For example, there are blue gloves for size medium and indigo gloves for size large to differentiate sizing or blue gloves for poultry and green gloves for vegetables.
Nitrile gloves are available in a wide variety of colors and styles. Black, blue, orange, and indigo gloves are featured here, representing the automotive, medical, industrial and tattoo shop applications, respectively.丁腈手套有多种颜色和款式可供选择。黑色、蓝色、橙色和靛蓝色手套是极具代表性的。可分别代表用于汽车、医疗、工业和纹身店的操作（手套）。
What are the benefits of nitrile gloves?
The chemical resistance, a result of the acrylonitrile monomer, is one of the most important features of nitrile gloves. Nitrile is able to withstand mineral oils, vegetable oils, grease, gasoline, diesel fuel and many acids. This is why these gloves are among the preferred choices for automotive, food processing and safety applications. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends nitrile gloves as a barrier between auto technicians and paints and organic solvents.
“With durable nitrile gloves, dentists and hygienists can better maintain a safe barrier between themselves and their patients.”
Additionally, nitrile gloves are highly puncture resistant – three to five times more so than latex. They are also more elastic than vinyl. Dentists prefer this material because of the strength and durability, especially with the sharp tools they use. With durable nitrile gloves, dentists and hygienists can better maintain a safe barrier between themselves and their patients.
One key consideration for all disposable glove materials is how they conform to wearers’ hands. Thanks to the butadiene, nitrile is a flexible rubber, which allows wearers to experience optimal tactile sensitivity. Additionally, nitrile gloves conform to hands as they are warmed by body heat. This attribute offers excellent dexterity, which is particularly important for medical professionals or persons working with small parts or tools.
Nitrile gloves are offered in both powder and powder free in a variety of styles and thicknesses. The range of options provides disposable gloves that are personalized to the application.
