Are you, your colleagues or clients allergic to latex? Did you know you can develop an allergy to latex, especially if used often? While nitrale gloves are commonly called “nitrale latex” gloves they actually are not made of latex. “Nitrale” is short for acrylonitrile-butadiene, which is a kind of synthetic rubber, in contrast to latex, which is made of natural rubber. This is the biggest selling point for nitrale gloves, although another big point in favor of nitrale is that the gloves can be recycled.Nitrale rubber is used mostly for products that require oil resistance, such as fuel hoses, gaskets, rollers, etc. The gloves are generally resistant to oils, greases, diesel, paints, alcohols, resins, alkalis, organic acids and many solvents. Nitrale gloves are made of a synthetic. They are popular in the automotive, plumbing, manufacturing, assembly, health, pharmaceutical, dental and food handling industries, among others. Our selection of gloves come in a variety of sizes, weights, ambidextrous or not, quantities per box, textured for less slippage and with or without powder and meet a variety of U.S. federal or international standards.
