The difference between nitrile gloves and latex gloves

In daily life, when we choose gloves to protect our hands, the longest ones we use are nitrile gloves and latex gloves.



The composition of nitrile gloves: synthesis of acrylonitrile and butadiene.

Composition of latex gloves: natural latex.

Puncture resistance:

Latex gloves are more puncture-resistant, elastic, particularly flexible, and have a certain degree of resistance to abrasion, tearing and cutting, so they are mainly used as medical surgical gloves.

The main function of nitrile gloves is to prevent organic solvents. They are not puncture-resistant. Therefore, they need to be extra careful when using them. Do not pull or clean the abrasion. When wearing nitrile gloves for some cleaning, because some products will have some Sharp edges, second, these sharp edges are the easiest to penetrate nitrile gloves, and once they penetrate even a small hole, it is enough to let the cleaning agent soak into the glove, making the entire glove useless.

Chemical resistance:

Nitrile gloves are highly resistant to strong solvents and most chemicals.

Latex gloves are characterized by resistance to corrosive substances and cleaning agents.

Allergen content:

The natural rubber in latex gloves has soluble protein, which is easy to make people allergic.

Nitrile gloves are chemically synthesized, do not contain soluble protein, and are less allergic.

Adaptability and comfort:

Latex gloves provide more comfort and adaptability than nitrile gloves. Although nitrile is also very elastic, it is not as comfortable as latex.

Market status:

Since nitrile gloves are made of synthetic raw materials, the cost of the raw materials is relatively lower than that of latex gloves. Therefore, more nitrile gloves are selected for daily use at the client.

Latex gloves are generally made of natural rubber, and the price is relatively high. If the client is used to wash dishes, it will be more wasteful, and latex gloves are easily aging for daily use.
