TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) is a durable material offering a superb alternative to Vinyl gloves. These particular gloves are excellent for working in messy environments, and while their less robust material means they’re not as durable as some of the other gloves we offer, their overall cost-efficiency is excellent because they’re made using a high-quality elastomer material.
These gloves are both comfortable and flexible to suit any task at hand. Perfect for applications when hygiene is an issue, like care homework or the nursing sector. The gloves are also ambidextrous, so they’re easy to put on in a hurry, or in situations where the user’s concentration or manual dexterity is limited.
TPE gloves, or thermoplastic elastomer gloves, are a new innovative form of disposable gloves entering the market. They are a thinner material with a smooth, soft surface for touching surfaces. These disposable gloves were stretchy and elasticized like rubber, making TPE gloves durable for workers to wear at extended periods.
The thermoplastic elastomer technology of TPE gloves causes the material to mold to the heat source, like your fingers, so it fits your hands well and allows dexterity when working.
Best for: food industry workers or those seeking a lower-priced poly glove alternative
TPE gloves are lighter-weight and less costly for businesses to buy in bulk. These bulk gloves offer elevated benefits from vinyl options when it comes to handling or prepping food, especially.
Like vinyl, these gloves are suitable for use in the food industry and are a class 1 medical device. The gloves are phthalate-free for extra safety and comfort, as well as powder-free to help minimize dust contamination.
If you do not properly wear your gloves, you could be at high risk. A puncture could cause cuts or scrapes which are exposed to the chemicals and other bodily fluids that you’re handling in your workplace. This could lead to infection and disease that may be life-threatening in some extreme cases.
Neglecting to wear bulk gloves that offer protection from harmful toxins or bacteria could be dangerous if you are in the presence of someone who is medically unwell. If in a hospital, direct contact with someone who is sick and then carrying the germs to another patient could lead to an entire outbreak, with yourself as one of its victims. If dealing with people with weak immune systems, could put their lives at risk.
This could also happen in the case of food handlers. If they have germs on their hands or touch foods like chicken, which could carry salmonella and other bacteria, and then touch other foods and use their hands to serve it, people could end up very sick.
If providing a service like surgery, tattooing, or other services involving piercing the skin or going deeper into the body, your lack of protective gloves could infect your customers or patients, which could lead to life-impairing problems, including sepsis.
