Want to know more about Gloves

Disposable gloves

Throwaway gloves are necessary for many professions, and they’re a functional choice around the home. Vinyl products are suitable for domestic use, as they protect hands from water, oils, grease, and dirt, and they provide a sure grip, even when immersed in liquid. Because the material is economical, the gloves are ideal throwaways after household cleaning, painting, garden work, and other chores. Disposable nitrile options consist of synthetic rubber that offers chemical and puncture resistance. The material is also tactile-sensitive and latex-free, so synthetic rubber choices are ideal for exam and operating rooms where practitioners need a secure grip on medical instruments. Other features include a sensitive, nonallergenic touch with patients and protection against infectious fluids and sharp needles.

Disposables besides vinyl gloves

Many disposable gloves consist of natural-rubber latex. These combine the budget-friendliness of vinyl with the protective and tactile qualities of nitrile, while also adding comfort, pliability, and tear resistance. Many are micro-textured for superior grip. Workers in the automotive, food-handling, and maintenance industries prefer them for their easy and safe maneuverability with small, delicate, or slippery materials.

Work gloves with nitrile and other materials

Thick gauge work gloves also come in vinyl, synthetic rubber, and natural rubber. Many have layers for full protection against chemicals, acids, and caustics in laboratory or industrial settings, or for superior cut, abrasion, or puncture resistance in materials-handling jobs. Some feature thermoplastic rubber padding to protect the knuckles and the dorsa of the hands from impacts, or foam rubber to provide pinch protection for the palms and fingertips. All work gloves come in versions lined with jersey cotton or wool for protection against the cold.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and neoprene choices are also available. The PVC-coated gloves provide solvent protection and abrasion resistance. They also retain their maneuverability at low temperatures. The neoprene-coated gloves offer protection specifically for jobs that require handling oils, acids, caustics, and solvents.


Both work and disposable options come in all hand sizes. They range from size 7, extra small, and small to medium and large, to extra large and double extra large.


Several manufacturers make disposable versions in the numerous materials, including Ansell, SHOWA®, and Ambitex® wear by Tradex®. These companies also make work gloves, joining other well-known manufacturers:

  • Ergodyne
  • G-Tek® gloves by PIP®
  • Memphis gloves by MCR Safety

These are just a handful of companies providing disposable or everyday products to protect workers and professionals on the job.
