Whether it is disposable nitrile gloves or latex gloves, they are very common in daily life and work. From the appearance point of view, there seems to be only a color difference between the two. Nitrile gloves are generally blue, while latex gloves are generally milky white. At the same time, both are very flexible. Therefore, everyone cannot distinguish the difference between the two very well. Today, I will take you to introduce the difference between the two.
Nitrile gloves are made by emulsion polymerization of butadiene and acrylonitrile. The main raw materials are nitrile rubber and other additives, while latex gloves are made of latex.
Different materials also create different characteristics. Because latex gloves are made of natural latex, they have better elasticity than nitrile gloves. In disposable gloves, its elasticity is also superior. At the same time, latex gloves have good abrasion resistance and puncture resistance. But it is not very friendly to people who are allergic to latex. Although nitrile gloves are not as elastic as latex gloves, they do not contain natural protein and will not cause allergies. Nowadays, the production process of nitrile gloves is becoming more and more mature. In addition to the limitation of raw materials, the puncture resistance, abrasion resistance, and alkali resistance of nitrile gloves are gradually increasing.
In addition to the difference in material and performance, they are also slightly different in use. Nitrile gloves are mostly used in the medical, pharmaceutical, sanitary and food processing industries, while latex gloves are more widely used, mostly in households, industry, medical care, automobile manufacturing, aerospace and other fields. These two gloves have their own advantages and can fill each other’s shortcomings. You can choose different gloves based on your own situation and different needs.
