The Showa Best W1005 Derma Thin latex, lightly powdered, disposable glove has a smooth surface on the palm and fingers for tactile sensitivity. This glove meets Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations for food contact (21CFR, 170–199), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for handling bloodborne pathogens. The glove has a palm thickness of 5 mils and a finger thickness of 5 mils, and is 9.5" long from the tip of the middle finger to the edge of the beaded wrist cuff, which is 3.9 mils thick. Latex provides better elasticity than nitrile, chloroprene, or vinyl, and better puncture resistance than vinyl. Cornstarch on the inside of this powdered glove makes it easier to put on and take off than a powder-free glove. This ambidextrous white glove is suitable for laboratory and industrial applications.

|Acceptable Quality Level (AQL)||1.5|
Tensile strength, measured in MPa, is the amount of force required to rip a glove; the higher the number, the stronger the glove material. Elongation measures how much a glove can be stretched before it breaks. It is expressed as a percent of the original length of the glove at the moment of breakage; the higher the percent, the more the glove can stretch. AQL is an FDA quality specification for the defect rate in surgical and exam gloves. The FDA requires an AQL of 1.5 for surgical gloves and 2.5 for exam gloves.
Disposable and limited-use gloves are used in medical, forensic, scientific, food service, and industrial applications. Disposable gloves are commonly made from flexible materials such as latex, nitrile, chloroprene, and vinyl. While most disposable gloves are designed for use on either hand, some can be purchased in hand-specific models. They are offered powdered or powder-free; silicone or silicone-free; chlorinated or non-chlorinated; coated or uncoated; with a standard- or extended-length cuff; sterile or non-sterile; and with textured or smooth fingers, fingertips, and palms. A glove's abrasion, cut, and puncture resistance are defined by glove material and thickness, and may be improved with the use of exterior coatings. Abrasion resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from contact with rough surfaces. Cut resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from blades and sharp instruments. Puncture resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from objects such as needles. Chemical resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from certain chemicals, and varies by glove material.
Showa Best Glove manufactures chemical resistant, cut resistant, specialty, and disposable gloves. The company, founded in 1951 and headquartered in Menlo, GA, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 13485:2003.
