Disposable gloves are important barriers to contagious disease and material handling.
Vinyl/PVC Gloves: Vinyl or PVC gloves are the second-best alternates to latex gloves after nitrile gloves. Vinyl gloves are made from synthetic PVC resins. It is less risky in terms of allergy than latex or other natural rubbers. Availability is in two variants, powdered and non-powdered, lightly corn starch powdered gloves are comfortable to wear.
Polyethylene gloves: Polyethylene or poly gloves are inexpensive means of avoiding handling food with bare hands. Poly gloves also prevent the slippage of material while handling due to its texture.
Latex or natural rubber gloves: Latex gloves protect against contagious infections and are resistant to oil, scratch, and puncture. Due to the contents of protein, latex gloves are not preferred for handling food preparation and are mostly used to manage cleaning and hygiene-related activities.
Nitrile gloves: Nitrile gloves are preferred alternatives to latex or other natural rubber as they are latex and thus protein-free, which makes them non-allergic.
Nitrile gloves are resistant to chemicals and inherit a better resistant property against scratch than latex and vinyl.
Ding Qing Gloves: Ding qing gloves are ideal substitutes for nitrile gloves as they are made from a synthetic material that is scratch and protein-free. Gloves made from ding qing rubber has excellent oil resistance and better anti-static properties. They are ideal barriers for contagious disease.
Application-specific disposable gloves are available against specifications and requirements.
