How to make latex gloves?
Prepare latex: latex gloves come from natural rubber latex, they are not 100% pure. This is because manufacturers combine latex concentrates with many blended chemicals at the beginning of the production process. This step enhances the performance of latex, such as elasticity, as well as the stability of materials and their shelf life.
Cleaning molds: in order to shape latex into gloves, manufacturers use hand shaped ceramic shapers. The first task is to immerse these forming agents into water and then bleach them. This ensures that there is no residue in the previous batch. After that, the members are immersed in the chemical solution of calcium carbonate and calcium nitrate to aid latex bonding.
Immersion latex: Once the molding agents are ready, the manufacturer immerses them in a tank filled with latex and, depending on the thickness of the gloves required, immerses the impregnating agent in the tank for a long time.
Vulcanized rubber: in order to ensure that the rubber will not break during drying, the molding machine enters oven to dry and solidify. The development of vulcanization process is indispensable for the production of latex rubber.
Leaching gloves: This process involves immersing the gloves in the tank and removing excess latex protein to reduce the risk of allergic reactions and enhance the sensation of the wearer.
Curled cuffs: Once the gloves are leached, the manufacturer rolls the cuffs to make it easier to remove the gloves. The bead glove may be leached again.
Coating: if the glove is powdered, enter the wet food grade corn starch. After that, the manufacturer dried the gloves again.
Chlorinate or polymer coat gloves: If the gloves do not contain powder, other methods can be used for easy wear. The first is chlorination, which makes latex less sticky. The second method is to coat the glove with polymer to make the surface more smooth.
Stripping gloves: after the gloves are finished, the workers remove them from their gloves with their hands.
