What Is The Difference Between Nitrile Gloves And Latex Gloves

In some dangerous industries, employees must wear corresponding personal protective equipment during work to effectively prevent potential injuries to the body by related occupations and provide protection for personal safety as much as possible. So, what is the difference between nitrile gloves and latex gloves? Now Quanzhou Fengze Jubao Technology Machinery Co., Ltd. will let you know about labor protection and safety tips.

What is the difference between nitrile gloves and latex gloves

Practice has proved that we must not underestimate the role of personal protective equipment and underestimate its safety protection capabilities. So, what is the difference between nitrile gloves and latex gloves?

The difference between nitrile gloves and latex gloves:

(1) Material: Latex gloves are also called rubber gloves. Latex is a natural material, derived from rubber tree sap. Natural latex is a biosynthetic product. Due to the difference in tree species, geology, climate and other related conditions, its composition and colloidal structure There will often be huge differences. In the fresh latex without any substance, the rubber hydrocarbon only accounts for 20%-40% of the total, and the rest is a small amount of non-rubber components and water. Non-rubber components include proteins, lipids, sugars, and inorganic components. Some of them form a composite structure with rubber particles, and some are dissolved in whey or form non-rubber particles. Nitrile gloves are popularly called nitrile gloves. Method, nitrile is a kind of rubber, a key raw material for organic synthesis and pharmaceutical intermediates. Mainly synthesized from acrylonitrile and butadiene. Nitrile: A type of organic compound with a special odor, which decomposes when exposed to acid or alkali.

(2) Characteristics: Compared with nitrile gloves, latex gloves are slightly inferior in toughness and abrasion resistance, but have better elasticity, abrasion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, and grease resistance compared with nitrile insulated gloves. Slightly better than Ding Qing, but not suitable for allergic skin and long-term wear. The material of nitrile gloves is relatively hard, with poor elasticity, better abrasion resistance, acid and alkali resistance (some nitrile gloves cannot prevent acetone, strong alcohol), anti-static, and will not cause skin allergies, suitable for physical fitness People who are allergic and wear it for a long time.

Maintenance instructions for nitrile gloves:

(1) Nitrile gloves can effectively resist organic solvents, and their main advantages are high strength and high elasticity.

It is mainly provided to work stations whose hands are in constant contact with liquid chemicals, such as chemical warehouses, alcohol cleaning, etc. Since the main function of nitrile rubber is to prevent organic solvents, but it is not resistant to piercing, it is necessary to be extra careful when using it. Do not pull or wear it strongly. Therefore, it is required to wear nitrile gloves on the outside. Veil gloves to reduce the degree of wear of nitrile gloves and extend their service life.

(2) When wearing nitrile gloves for some cleaning operations, because some products have sharp edges, and these sharp edges are the easiest to penetrate nitrile gloves, and once they penetrate even a small hole, Enough for the cleaning agent to soak into the glove, making the entire glove useless. Therefore, in addition to requiring careful handling during use, finger cots must be worn on top of the gloves.
