What are the differences between latex and nitrile disposable gloves?
While most people refer to disposable gloves as latex or rubber disposable gloves most of the popular choice of disposable gloves available today are composed of nitrile rubber for its greater puncture resistance as well as a better chemical resistance. Nitrile is a synthetic rubber compound as opposed to latex which is a natural composite and it is this synthetic blend that allows for greater strength and durability. In most cases natural rubber latex will be a cheaper option, but for the superior protection offered by Nitrile examination gloves make them better to use in the workshop or garage setting where chemicals and solvents will be used. Nitrile disposable gloves are made from a synthetic rubber which does not contain latex and this latex free material is, therefore, safe for contact with people suffering from a latex allergy. Vinyl disposable gloves are not really suitable for workshops and harsher solvents as vinyl gloves are more suited for light duties such as food preparation.

As well as being used for all your grease and oil changes, nitrile disposable gloves are also exceptionally handy when it comes to car care and vehicle detailing. While the products may not be as toxic, the direct contact on your skin from polishing pads or cleaners can cause irritation on sensitive skin or induce dryness. They are also vital when handling high strength glues and sealants as these can be very reactive to skin as well as difficult to remove.
