What is Vinyl?

Vinyl Gloves are manufactured from Polyvinyl Chloride Plastisol and are a popular choice for users who find themselves sensitive to Latex proteins or allergenic compounds. The material itself is extremely soft and provides a snug and comfortable fit. Vinyl gloves provide a reasonable resistance to oil and grease, but are not as strong or as resistant to tearing as Latex or Nitrile gloves. For this reason, they are often used for lower risk non-invasive procedures.

We supply a range of Blue Vinyl Gloves which are ideal for use in catering applications and our Economy Medical Grade Vinyl Gloves are our most cost-effective disposable gloves, from as low as £1.40 per box of 100!

What is Nitrile?

Nitrile Gloves are manufactured from a synthetic polymer known as Acrylonitrile-butadiene and are rapidly gaining popularity for their superior strength and resistance to tears and punctures. Nitrile gloves also provide excellent resistance to oil, grease and a number of aqueous chemical solutions. The material offers a comparable feel to Latex gloves but contains none of the proteins known to aggravate sensitivity to Natural Rubber Latex. Nitrile gloves are slightly more expensive than Vinyl and Latex gloves, but can last longer due to their superior resilience. Subsequently they can often be a more cost-effective option for those who use disposable gloves frequently or in large volumes.

What is Latex?

Latex Gloves are constructed from Natural Rubber Latex. The physical properties of the material offer protection from bio hazardous risks whilst superior elasticity and tensile strength provide unsurpassed user comfort and a reasonable resistance to cuts and abrasions. Because they are manufactured from a naturally occurring substance, Latex gloves possess greater biodegradability and are kinder to the environment than Vinyl and Nitrile gloves, which are manufactured from man-made synthetic materials. Latex gloves are generally cost-effective and our Standard Medical Grade Latex Gloves are available from as low as £3.40 per box of 100!
