Essentially, vinyl gloves are a form of personal protective equipment that is made using synthetic polymers to prevent damage to the hand. The production of vinyl disposable gloves is fast and cheap, which is why they’re used in such large quantities in low-risk environments. They perform best in industries in which health and safety are integral, where the chances of punctures or corrosion are minimal, such as food preparation or in medical centres. These gloves are also designed to maintain a barrier but aren’t specialised like other kinds of gloves to protect your hands against specific hazards.
Vinyl coated gloves still offer protection against some hazards, despite not being as strong as other types of gloves. For example, blunt blades will not cause the gloves to break. They’re best suited to protecting your hands against oily substances, acid, and emulsions, as well as other non-corrosive liquids like water. These gloves are not designed to protect against electricity, heat, or abrasions, so it is highly recommended that they are not used for such purposes. Due to their cheap production value, they should only be used for very low-risk tasks and thrown away after use to avoid accidental snapping and hand exposure.
Vinyl and Latex gloves both allow for a lot of dexterity, which means that you don’t feel hindered and will allow you to perform your task as though you aren’t wearing gloves at all. Latex gloves are far more durable than Vinyl gloves and can offer greater protection against punctures and tears. However, the primary factor that goes against Latex Gloves is the fact that Latex is an allergen and can only be used in industries in which there isn’t a direct threat to health and safety. Latex particles can transfer from the gloves to the equipment you use at work and come into contact with an allergic person, so it is best to steer clear of them altogether. Vinyl doesn’t have this problem, and so, is the better option.
Vinyl gloves are hypoallergenic, which means that sensitive skin should not react to the gloves at all. They are made from polyvinyl chloride which is designed to protect your hands from dirt and bacteria, while simultaneously keeping your hands dry, without the use of powder. This is good because powdered gloves can cause reactions and allergic-flare ups in some. Additionally, vinyl disposable gloves contain no latex, so the chance of reaction is reduced further.
Vinyl disposable gloves are plasticised, so they’re incredibly elastic and can handle an impressive level of stretching before tearing. The chlorination or polymer coating process also makes them resistant to low-level chemicals, alcohols, and biohazards.
These gloves are appropriate for use in medical settings, manufacturing, food handling and chemical environments.
