FAQs

What are nitrile gloves?

Ultimately, nitrile gloves are a superb method of hand protection. The glove material is made out of a compound called nitrile, which is a chemical and puncture-resistant material utilised in many industries across the world. Since they are developed with a synthetic rubber compound, which is free from protein, it means nitrile gloves do not contain any latex. Because of this, it offers users a fantastic alternative and will not cause any latex allegories to occur which will allow users to operate their given task in full confidence. 

Are Nitrile Gloves Food Safe?

Protective gloves, such as Nitrile gloves, play an essential part in risk management, especially during tasks such as food preparation and food safety. While there are many disposable gloves available to protect users from harmful bacterias when dealing with food, none are as effective as Nitrile gloves due to their high levels of versatility. Nitrile gloves are also significantly more effective across a wide range of work places and industries and protect workers from any skin irritation, cuts and abrasions, burns and even harmful bacteria which may occur in any food handling environment. 

What's the difference between nitrile and latex gloves?

The main difference between Nitrile and Latex is that Nitrile is typically a stronger, higher-quality glove compared to Latex. However, Latex is a cheaper option for those that do not require stronger chemical and puncture resistance. It largely depends on the task users are required to perform. While Nitrile is not as flexible as their latex counterparts, disposable nitrile gloves are notably more durable and resistant to chemicals. As such, these gloves are the ideal choice for anyone who has to handle potentially hazardous and corrosive chemicals.

When should you not use nitrile gloves? 

While Nitrile gloves generally thrive in many risk management situations that involve chemical or hazardous materials, there are some environments where they are not recommended to be worn. This is because when put in contact with extremely hazardous substances, nitrile gloves offer poor resistance, providing less than a minute breakthrough time. If the toxic material seeps through the glove, it could cause skin damage to the wearer’s hand. Therefore, it is advised not to wear nitrile gloves in the presence of: 

  • Aromatic solvents
  • Ketones
  • Acetates
  • Concentrated acids
  • Highly corrosive chemicals

How long can you wear nitrile gloves? 

Disposable gloves made out of synthetic rubber materials like nitrile offer an average shelf life of about five years. While nitrile gloves do expire some, if properly stored, have lasted up to 10 years without any signs of damage or degradation. While an exact shelf life time period is dependent on what specific material the gloves are made of and storage facilities, a general rule of thumb is up to five years for disposable nitrile gloves.

Are nitrile gloves safe for electrical work? 

You are bound to come into contact with some form of hazard when dealing with electronics. As such, having a protecting gloves such as Nitrile gloves can play an essential part in minimising risk of accidents from occurring. This is because Nitrile does not conduct electricity and is, in fact, a superb insulator meaning it does not allow heat sound or electricity to pass through. This means it is more than ideal for any electrical environment.
