When deciding between Latex, Nitrile and Vinyl gloves…it can be a little confusing trying to determine which type of glove is the ideal choice. These are the attributes and benefits of each type of glove:

Latex gloves
are natural material, made out of rubber.  They are the most popular choice of protective glove.  The primary reason people would choose an alternative to latex is due to latex allergies.  Latex, being the main raw material in rubber gloves manufacturing, is the gold standard for durability. It demonstrates superior elasticity, strength and barrier protection. Biodegradable latex glovesIt outperforms vinyl as well as any synthetic rubber in terms of maintaining barrier integrity in routine and high risks procedures.
