Frequently Asked Questions

What are nitrile gloves made of?

Nitrile rubber, also known as nitrile butadiene rubber, NBR, Buna-N, and acrylonitrile butadiene rubber, is a synthetic rubber derived from acrylonitrile (ACN) and butadiene This rubber is unusual in being resistant to oil, fuel, and other chemicals.

NBR is used in the automotive and aeronautical industry to make fuel and oil handling hoses, seals, grommets, and self-sealing fuel tanks. It is used in the nuclear industry to make protective gloves. NBR’s stability at high temperatures from −40 to 108 °C (−40 to 226 °F) makes it an ideal material for aeronautical applications. Nitrile butadiene is also used to produce molded goods, footwear, adhesives, sealants, sponges, expanded foams, and floor mats.

Its resilience makes NBR a useful material for disposable lab, cleaning, and examination gloves. Nitrile rubber is more resistant than natural rubber to oils and acids, and has superior strength, but has inferior flexibility. Nitrile gloves are therefore more puncture-resistant than natural rubber gloves, especially if the latter are degraded by exposure to chemicals or ozone. Nitrile rubber is less likely to cause an allergic reaction than natural rubber.

Why are Nitrile Gloves Are the Best?

Nitrile gloves are now regarded as the most functional hand protection products in the market. Nitrile gloves are made from a synthetic rubber polymer. Nitrile has easily overtaken latex as the best glove production material mainly due to its superior hand protection qualities and the fact that nitrile is latex free. But this does not mean that latex gloves are no longer popular. Latex is still highly favored in the manufacture of medical grade gloves. This is mainly because latex is highly elastic and strong and because it’s cheaper to produce than nitrile.

Greater Chemical Resistance – Nitrile offers greater chemical resistance than all other glove production materials. Nitrile gloves are recommended for high-risk work environments where harsh chemicals are present. Nitrile gloves can protect your hands from harsh corrosive chemicals that cannot be withstood by latex and vinyl gloves.

Greater Tear and Puncture Resistance – Nitrile is the strongest material for producing gloves. Nitrile gloves offer great tear and puncture resistance. In fact, nitrile is 3-4 times more puncture resistant than latex. Nitrile is now the choice material for manufacturing disposable mechanics gloves and other industrial grade gloves that are used in risky work environments where all kinds of sharp objects are in use. Nitrile gloves will protect your hands from cuts, bruises, piercings, and other physical injuries.

100% Latex Free – The main reason why nitrile gloves are more popular than latex gloves is because of allergic reactions. Latex gloves contain natural rubber proteins that can cause allergic skin reactions to the user. This means that many people now prefer using the relatively safe nitrile instead of latex because of the risk of allergic skin reactions. Nitrile is 100% latex free and hence very safe and healthy to use.

Totally Waterproof – Nitrile gloves are completely waterproof. This means that you can wear nitrile gloves underneath your regular working gloves to prevent water permeation. Nitrile gloves are recommended for damp working environments.

Longer Shelf Life – Nitrile gloves have a longer shelf life than latex gloves. Nitrile is an extraordinarily strong and durable material used to manufacture high quality gloves. These gloves last for a very long time in storage.
