Learn About Latex Gloves Equipment

Demand for disposable Latex Gloves Equipment has continued to grow dramatically, mainly in catering services and medical facilities, as more people pay more attention to cleanliness and hygiene. Disposable gloves not only protect workers' hands from contaminants and potentially harmful chemicals, but they also prevent cross-contamination and help you achieve proper food safety.

1.What is latex?

Latex is a mixture of proteins and compounds found naturally in certain plants and trees. Latex began as a liquid, but eventually became a rubber-like material with many different USES in various industries. Natural latex is different from a synthetic latex, which is made of chemicals and is used to make products such as latex paint.

2.What is the use of latex?

Latex is used to make many common objects such as disposable gloves, medical equipment, balloons, shoes, tires, and rubber toys. You can find latex products in many different environments, which are common in the foodservice industry as well as in the medical and dental fields.

3.What is latex allergy?

Latex allergy is when someone reacts to proteins in natural latex. There are different types of latex allergies, with some people having a mild reaction and others experiencing serious medical problems from exposure to latex. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 to 6 percent of the general population has latex allergies. Therefore, caution should be taken when using latex products around customers or with people who may have allergies.

In 2017, the FDA issued a ban on the use of powdered latex gloves in the medical and dental fields, because latex allergies can adversely affect patients.

4.Latex gloves

Powdered latex gloves have a powder inside that slides off easily and prevents the latex from sticking to your hands, ideal if your staff keeps taking them off and replacing them.

The powder inside the glove is corn starch, which, unlike the powder used for gloves before, prevents irritation. In addition to making gloves easy to put on, the powder keeps employees' hands dry and comfortable. This type of disposable glove is more resistant to tearing and tearing than the powder-free option.

Powder-free latex gloves

After the FDA's ban, powder-free latex gloves became more common in the medical industry and were also common in foodservice establishments. The main advantage of powder-free gloves over powder-free gloves is that they don't leave messy residues on your hands or equipment, which is crucial in food and beverage establishments. In addition, the new powder-free gloves are as easy to wear as powder gloves, making them an ideal alternative to other powder gloves.

1)Latex vs PVC gloves

PVC gloves are made of PVC and do not contain 100% powder. Compared with nitrile and latex, they have poor elasticity, poor adhesion, and feel smooth and comfortable. It helps prevent allergic reactions to latex proteins.

PVC gloves are less elastic than nitrile and latex, so they are looser and feel comfortable.

Nitrile gloves are one of the best alternatives to latex gloves because you can use them for many of the same tasks as latex gloves, but you don't have to worry about latex allergies. Nitrile gloves are ideal for hospitals, dental clinics and other medical facilities because of their excellent chemical resistance, which is needed during an international pandemic.
