Applications of TPE Gloves

TPE gloves are used for daily hand protection, and nitrile and latex gloves are used for mission-critical frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic-related glove storage.

As the global demand for personal protective equipment continues to increase, we must all find ways to ensure that the necessary resources are provided to the basic staff who need PPE-mainly those in mission-critical medical positions.

It is important that we keep nitrile and latex disposable gloves for health care workers and first responders, and at the same time determine appropriate alternatives for the general population and those who do not have high requirements for personal protective equipment. Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) gloves are an excellent alternative because they have several characteristics that make them an ideal alternative for hand protection in everyday settings. In particular, TPE gloves combine high ease of use and extensive chemical resistance to become an affordable and recyclable product that is comfortable for the wearer.

Applications of TPE gloves

Comfortable, low-cost, and broad-spectrum chemical-resistant TPE gloves allow them to be used in a variety of applications. It makes them ideal protection for low mechanical risk environments such as retail, beauty, housekeeping, cleaning, painting, and household services.

They are also ideal for food service and food preparation. Due to its clean production process, TPE products are food contact approved by the FDA. They provide workers with the high flexibility required for food preparation and production-they are usually available in multiple colors to address cross-contamination requirements.

The lightweight nature of TPE gloves and the broad chemical resistance of the material make them suitable for many applications under gloves. They can be used under knitted-impregnated mechanical protection gloves, and the wearer will be exposed to liquids that may harm the skin. Due to their low cost and lightweight, they can also be used in nitrile and latex, reusable chemical resistant gloves to enhance chemical protection. In these critical environments, wearing TPE gloves as an under glove can extend the life of the glove, protect the worker, and provide an extra sense of security.

It is these factors that make TPE gloves an ideal substitute for nitrile and latex disposable products. From extensive chemical resistance to clean manufacturing processes, these economical gloves have come a long way in providing light hand protection in a wide range of applications, as primary gloves for dexterity or as gloves for high-risk environments.
