How to Choose Disposable Nitrile or Latex Gloves?

Issue Time:2022/09/09
Most people probably know that disposable nitrile gloves are generally blue, while disposable latex gloves are generally milky white. But beyond that, what's the difference between them?

In fact, disposable nitrile gloves are made by emulsion polymerization of butadiene and acrylonitrile. The main raw materials are nitrile rubber and other additives; while disposable latex gloves are made of latex.

In addition, disposable latex gloves generally have better abrasion resistance, puncture resistance, and elasticity than disposable nitrile gloves. But please note that if you are allergic to latex, please choose disposable nitrile gloves decisively, which do not contain natural protein and will not make you allergic.

Finally, they also serve a slightly different purpose. Latex gloves are more widely used and are used in many fields such as household, industry, medical, automobile manufacturing, aerospace, and so on. Nitrile gloves are mostly used in the medical, pharmaceutical, hygiene, and food processing industries.
These two gloves have their own advantages and can complement each other's shortcomings. Please choose different gloves according to your own situation and different needs.
