What are TPE gloves?

TPE gloves are made of thermoplastic elastomer. This glove is a new type of PE material developed in 2009. It looks a lot like vinyl gloves, but thinner than vinyl gloves. TPE gloves are soft and strong, more elastic than other PE gloves.


What are vinyl gloves?

Vinyl gloves are also called PVC gloves. These gloves are made of virgin synthetic materials, mainly polyvinyl chloride and phthalate DINP plasticizers, which make the plastic soft and flexible. Vinyl gloves are soft but not flexible and are suitable for low-risk jobs such as food handling and kitchen/household cleaning. Relatively speaking, compared with latex gloves, nitrile gloves, and vinyl gloves, their distinguishing feature is their high-cost performance.
