Why nitrile gloves? why not latex gloves? what’s the difference?



                                             Hey Subscribers,

This week we’ve been asked; Why Nitrile Gloves? Why not Latex Gloves? What’s the difference? Do dogs have their own language?
We’re not actually sure about the habits of our canine companions, but we are very knowledgeable about Nitrile, and we’ve decided to share our Nitrile based knowledge and help you choose the glove that fits your needs. Get it? Fit? Glove? Never mind.

The first thing you should know is that Nitrile contains no Latex, and as such, will be less likely to cause allergicreactions to you or your patient. There are obvious benefits to this; the foremost being “not having blisters and rashes covering your hands”.
 Nitrile is also almost 3 times more resistant to puncture. This makes it ideal for Dentists and Doctors, as well as Surgeons and Tattooists because you’re more protected from needles. To prove our point, here’s a picture of me shoving a pen through my glove. See? No holes.
The third point is that they’re more reliable in a pinch. Because Nitrile is 100% man made, it features none of Mother Nature’s little flaws, and as such, has a reduced margin for error.

Now, our gloves are Nitrile. They’re also Powder Free, so you don’t inhale dusty corn-flour every time you want to operate. The reason they powder them is to (supposedly) speed up putting the gloves on. We don’t see a difference to be quite honest, so our gloves are all powder free, minimising contamination and eliminating the chance of inhaling powder.

They’re also some of the best priced on the Market, so what’s not to love? Great Medical Quality for low prices. They also come in 4 sizes and are a dashing blue colour. Look fabulous while pulling teeth - you’re worth it.
See you all next week!
