5 Questions You Want To Know About Latex Gloves

If you work in the glove industry, then you may want to know - or even be asked - about latex gloves. For all their advantages, latex gloves have proved to be a common topic, mainly because they cause allergies.

The latex glove manufacturer will present questions about gloves made from natural rubber latex. So for today's article, we'll answer the five most popular questions you'd like to know about latex gloves.

1.Are latex gloves waterproof?

Latex gloves are stronger than synthetic vinyl gloves and provide greater barrier protection, so they are more waterproof than synthetic gloves.

In addition, latex gloves are recommended for casual contact and provide an advantage as they are suitable for biological and water-based materials.

2.Are latex gloves impermeable?

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines "impermeable" as "not passing through the permissible channel of its substance (as a fluid)."

However, no disposable gloves, including those made of latex, are truly impermeable.

As the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) explains:

The term 'impermeable (or impermeable) gloves' is usually found on the safety data sheet (SDS) and has a very limited value. This is technically inaccurate. Any glove material will never infiltrate into a particular chemical. No glove material is resistant to all chemicals. Some chemicals can travel through or penetrate gloves in a few seconds, while others can take days or weeks."

Thus, latex gloves themselves are not impermeable but are chemical resistant - hence why OSHA defines them as "chemical and liquid resistant" gloves.

3.Are latex gloves resistant to acetone?

Acetone is "a volatile aromatic flammable liquid ketone C3H6O that is primarily used as a solvent and organic synthesis and is found in abnormal amounts in diabetic urine." Latex gloves do provide protection against acetone.

For example, if latex gloves have the color green and have the symbol "E or G" under acetone, it means they are rated "excellent or good. "

4.What are the main uses of latex gloves?

Latex gloves are mainly used for medical applications. These gloves are manufactured dexterously (for inspection and general use) while the hands are specialized (for surgery and flooring/surgical gloves).

Latex gloves are gloves that are different from normal gloves. Through emulsion processing, it can be used in the home, industrial, medical, cosmetic, and other industries. Latex gloves are essential hand protection equipment. Latex gloves are made of natural latex and other fine additives and have been specially treated to make them comfortable to wear. It has a wide range of applications in industry, agriculture, medicine, or daily life.

Latex Gloves Production Line

5.Are latex gloves the preferred polymer in the foodservice industry?

It has been found that latex gloves are not the preferred polymer for use in the foodservice industry because latex gloves can leave traces of latex proteins on the food.

As a result, several states, including Hawaii, Oregon, Connecticut, and, most recently, Ohio, have banned latex gloves.

Our latex gloves production line is a special latex glove equipment for rubber glove production, equipped with an automatic ejecting device (mechanical), high efficiency, high output, low labor cost, favored by the industry. In order to reduce the trouble of foreign installation, improve the convenience of maintenance and migration, we specially designed the detachable structure to improve the optimal utilization rate of the equipment.
