Disposable Latex gloves are made out of natural rubber (which will break down easier when discarded). They are a popular protective glove for medical or industrial uses. Despite the development of synthetic materials, latex is still the most elastic, resilient and form-fitting material for gloves. This gives the wearer a great deal of dexterity, tactility and comfort, making these gloves perfect for medical, auto repair and food service applications.
Some people choose nitrile alternatives to latex because of latex allergies. If this is not an issue, latex gloves provide greater comfort and flexibility over nitrile gloves. Latex gloves provide great touch sensitivity and good strength so are suitable in high-risk environments involving infectious material. Compared to nitrile gloves, latex gloves do not have a long shelf life, however, they are still cost-effective. All our latex gloves are fully compliant to international standards.
