Nitrile is considered the main alternative to natural latex because it is the material closest to the properties of latex. Nitrile is a compound whose molecule is obtained by replacing the hydrogen atoms of hydrocyanic acid with organic groups. One of the main differences is that it does not contain synthetic latex allergens. Nitrile gloves are very thin but very durable.
Main characteristics of nitrile gloves
· Wear resistant
It is a very elastic material, durable and less susceptible to punctures than other types of gloves. Therefore, they are interesting options for companies where there is a risk of contamination or chemical penetration. In addition, it is also a material that meets absolutely all microbiological safety requirements, so nitrile gloves are ideal for jobs involving microorganisms or professions exposed to certain viruses.
