Gloves . The primary differences between latex and nitrile are as follows:

  • Latex is made from the natural milky sap found in the rubber tree Hevea Brasiliensis.
  • Nitrile is synthetic tri-polymer that displays similar characteristics to rubber once it has been vulcanised ( a process where the latex film is heated, and the combination of sulphur, accelerator and heat cause cross-linking of the rubber, giving strength and elasticity to the film).
  • Nitrile also has no natural rubber proteins and therefore eliminates the well-documented protein risks associated with natural rubber latex.
  • Vinyl is a synthetic non- biodegradable protein free material used to manufacture vinyl gloves. Polyvinyl chloride and plasticizers are used to make vinyl gloves. Vinyl gloves are best used as a cheap glove material for handling non-hazardous materials and chemicals

Nitrile rubber is a synthetic material whereas natural rubber comes from the sap of the rubber tree, Hevea Brasiliensis. Both materials offer protection against chemicals but very importantly, not all natural rubber or nitrile gloves offer the same level of protection.

A  micron is a unit of measure which is one millionth of a meter. Therefore there are 1000 microns in a millimeter. It is used to describe very small things.

To find out your glove size, measure (in inches) around your hand with a tape measure across your palm. You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed.

Glove Size Equivalents

Some manufacturers indicate glove sizes by number and others by letters standing for Small, Medium, Large, etc. We always indicate the size of a pair of gloves the same way the manufacturer does. Use the table at the right to translate between “letter sizes” and “number sizes”.
