Nitrile gloves, blue, powder-free
PPE CAT I - personal protective equipment category
In sensitive working environments, continuous protection from head to toe is indispensable. Disposable gloves are a useful addition to the worn work clothing. Gloves should always be worn when contact with contaminated objects, pathogens and chemicals is to be assumed. Nitrile gloves protect the wearer from contamination and prevent the release of pathogens from the hand to the work environment.
Product description and purpose
The powder-free examination gloves are suitable for protection against germs in medicine, laboratories, the food industry and in nursing. The nitrile examination glove is latex-free and cannot trigger a latex allergy. People who experience allergic reactions to nitrile gloves are usually allergic to the chemical substances called accelerators found in these gloves. Accelerators are chemicals that glove manufacturers use a catalyst to accelerate the process of turning liquid latex into a gel form. However, the chances of having a true allergy to nitrile gloves are very low, and most reactions are actually due to contact dermatitis (irritation of the skin).
