1. What Kind Of Powder Is In The Powdered Latex Gloves?
Talcum powder has been used since the late 1890s, but now cornstarch is more often to be used in powdered latex glove production.
2. Powdered Gloves
The original purpose of adding powders to latex gloves is for easier donning. But, later researches show that cornstarch powder can increase the risk of wound infection, peritoneal adhesions and granulomatous peritonitis, and latex allergy. Long periods of wearing powdered gloves can pose a risk to both patients and healthcare workers who use them. That’s why powdered gloves are banned in the USA, UK, and Germany.
3. Powder-Free Gloves
If we need latex gloves to be easier donning, but do not want any powder in it, what should we do?
The answer is simple now, after undergoing a process known as chlorination, powders will be no longer needed for easy donning and removal. During the process, gloves are treated with a chlorine solution, rinsed with water, and dried to remove most of the powdered residue and latex proteins.
Wuhan Morntrip Trading Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of Xiantao Tongda Non-Woven Products Co., Ltd. Founded in 1998. our main products including: disposable gloves, vinyl gloves, latex gloves powder-free, rubber gloves, plastic gloves, heat-resistant gloves, nitrile gloves, etc.
2. Overview of Glove Texture TypesSmooth/Non-textured: This means this type of gloves do not have any texture. Most of the non-textured gloves are vinyl, they are suitable for applications such as hair care, food preparation and food service.
Micro-roughened: This is the lightest form of texturing and is mostly for nitrile and latex gloves. In fact, 95 percent of nitrile gloves are micro-roughened. These gloves have a surface that appears to be lightly sanded and are great for medical applications because they provide additional grip for holding tools without disturbing patients or procedures. Additionally, they are more suitable for gripping small objects.
Aggressively textured: This category has the most intense level of texture. This type of gloves has a diamond-raised texture, which is particularly useful for gripping fasteners, nuts, and bolts when the glove is slippery. Manufacturers produce these gloves on textured formers, which require more material. This added thickness provides additional grip and protection.
3. Why Do We Need Textured Gloves? Is There Another Way To Get The Grip?
The main purpose to get gloves textured is to increase the friction and grip.
But, for latex gloves, we can get the grip by altering the finishing process by using less chlorine during chlorination to maintain surface tackiness.
What is Nitrile?
Nitrile is a synthetic rubber derived from acrylonitrile (ACN) and butadiene. It is commonly used as a disposable glove material. Nitrile has been found for centuries and has become a very affordable material, which widely used in the medical, food, automotive and cleaning industries. The biggest advantage of nitrile is that it has great resilience, also a higher puncture resistance level than any other glove material. Nitrile also has a better chemical resistance than Latex or Vinyl gloves.
What is Latex?
Latex comes directly from nature, it made from the latex ducts of rubber trees, so it is biodegradable. So far, latex is still the most elastic, resilient and form-fitting material for gloves. Latex gloves have been the only strong disposable glove material on the market for a long period, because of their high level of touch sensitivity, form-fitting and cost-effective features. Considering a huge group of latex allergy people, many hospitals and clinics have begun replacing their latex gloves with nitrile gloves.
