The properties of latex gloves

Latex comes from rubber tree sap, or consists of proprietary formulas of polyisoprene, the natural chemical in rubber. Both natural rubber and synthetic rubber gloves offer properties that combine the desirable characteristics of both synthetic nitrile gloves and vinyl gloves, including comfort, elasticity, and resilience. Gloves made of natural or synthetic latex are tear-resistant, and they protect against acids, solvents, and chemicals, as well as raw-food bacteria. This versatility makes them the glove of choice for many professionals.

Latex gloves in medicine

Disposable gloves are an essential part of medical supplies in practice facilities and hospitals, with cross-application for exams, treatment, and surgery. Natural and synthetic rubber gloves provide superior tactile sensitivity, ideal for procedures like taking pulses or inserting IVs. They can be molded to fit the anatomical positioning of hands to reduce hand fatigue in surgeons, and they can be micro-textured for superior grip on delicate instruments. Many gloves have inner polymer coatings that make them easy to get on and off, and some have an aloe coating to moisturize hands for extended wear.

Latex gloves for other industries

The same properties that make latex a valuable material for disposable medical gloves also makes them ideal in industries that require hand dexterity for gripping tools and using them securely around fluids or oils. Automotive mechanics, janitorial staff, and food-handling workers all benefit from the tactile sensitivity and surface texture of latex gloves. The chemical resistance of natural and synthetic rubber also protects workers from substances like brake fluids, cleaning solvents, and bacteria-laden fluids.

Options with natural and synthetic rubber gloves

You can find latex gloves in a variety of colors, some with a definite purpose:

  • Brown reduces glare, minimizing eye strain in settings with a lot of lighting, such as operating rooms.
  • White shows blood and other fluids clearly.
  • Green is a good under-glove contrast when double-gloving is necessary for work around extreme amounts of fluids or solvents.
  • Black helps frame instrumentation and parts against repair components, providing better task focus.
  • Pink helps raise money for breast cancer research.

Other applications

Many latex gloves have added layering to give them extra strength for demanding tasks, including protection for health-care workers from exposure to radiation from X-rays. Latex also has material integrity, so the gloves are ideal in laboratory or patient clean-rooms that require the elimination of cross-contamination from substances, including particles and fibers.
