- Jan 12, 2021-

PVC gloves and PE gloves are mostly transparent, which is difficult to distinguish when worn on the hand. If you look closely, you will find that they are actually quite different, which can be distinguished by the following points:


  PVC gloves are made of PVC paste resin, plasticizer, stabilizer, viscosity reducer, PU, and demineralized water as the main raw materials, through a special process.

  PE gloves are made of low (LDPE) and high (HDPE) density polyethylene materials, with other additives refined.

   Therefore, it feels different to the touch. PVC gloves are elastic, PE gloves do not, and the softness of PVC gloves is slightly better. This is why PVC gloves have different sizes and PE gloves do not.


  PVC gloves do not contain allergens; low dust generation, low ion content; resistance to a certain pH; strong tensile strength; low price, convenient and comfortable to wear.

PE gloves have high transparency; no allergens, loose openings, convenient and comfortable to wear; the surface has uneven or flat surface, bright color, uniform thickness; light weight, good hand feeling, low price, non-toxic and harmless, it is a general economical protection product.


  PVC gloves are often used in industries such as electronics, chemicals, food, and hospitals. Especially widely used in the operation of semiconductors and precision electronic instruments.

  PE gloves are mostly used for household cleaning, food, sanitation and industrial and agricultural protection, hair dyeing, care washing, dining, etc., for very simple protective operations.
