Material

  • Chloroprene, also called neoprene, provides better elasticity than vinyl and better puncture resistance than latex or vinyl. It has a reduced likelihood of allergic reaction compared to latex.
  • Latex provides better elasticity than nitrile, chloroprene, or vinyl, and better puncture resistance than vinyl.
  • Neoprene, also called chloroprene, provides better elasticity than vinyl and better puncture resistance than latex or vinyl. It has a reduced likelihood of allergic reaction compared to latex.
  • Nitrile rubber provides better elasticity than vinyl, better puncture resistance than latex or vinyl, and better abrasion resistance than chloroprene. It has a reduced likelihood of allergic reaction compared to latex.
  • Rubber gloves come in two types: unsupported or supported. Unsupported rubber gloves are made only from rubber. Supported rubber gloves are made from a textile that has been coated with rubber. Rubber gloves are limited-use and are suitable for household and industrial applications such as dishwashing and janitorial work.
  • Vinyl is suitable for applications requiring frequent changing, but is not suitable for use in wet environments or when exposed to abrasives, chemicals, and high temperatures. It has a reduced likelihood of allergic reaction compared to latex.
