Why Use Nitrile Gloves

With so many other types of gloves available, why would anyone want to use nitrile gloves? Because nitrile butadiene rubber is very different from natural (latex) rubber, that's why.

Nitrile gloves were at first heralded as a solution to a growing minority of people who have developed allergies to the latex proteins that accompany latex gloves. But the truth is, nitrile gloves are not suitable replacements for the latex glove in some situations; the surgical operating room being one of those places. However, nitrile gloves are ideal for environments where resistance to hydrocarbons is critical.

Nitrile gloves have a reputation for not fitting as well as latex gloves. This reputation was earned early in the development of the nitrile butadiene formulae that are used to create the gloves and this reputation was also formed before newer manufacturing processes addressed these early problems. GloveNation is proud to say that all our nitrile gloves are made with advanced NBR formulae and processes that produce the best possible fit for any nitrile glove, while also maintaining superior resistance to oils, fuels and solvents.
