Types of Nitrile Gloves
Disposable gloves – which can only be used once – can be made of various different materials:
- Nitrile rubber
- Natural rubber latex
All these options can come powdered or unpowered, depending on whether the cornstarch residues are removed after manufacture or not. Cornstarch replaced talc and lycopodium powder, as these turned out to be irritating for some people. Especially among the medical community, some doctors prefer to use unpowdered gloves, as even small amounts of cornstarch can delay healing.
The way gloves are manufactured depends on how they’re going to be used. Sterile surgical gloves, for example, have a much precise fit and are produced to a higher standard than everyday non-sterile gloves to use in the lab to deal with non-hazardous chemicals.
When dealing with dangerous and highly toxic chemicals, especially those with a quick absorption through the skin, it’s a common practice to double glove, which means to wear two gloves at the same time. It’s been shown this reduces the risk of exposure in case of accidentally tearing the outside glove. The same method is also used by surgeons during medical procedures.
