Nitrile is a synthetic material that resists chemicals like petrol, oils, grease, diesel, hydraulic fluids, solvents, paint thinners, acids, disinfectants, strong cleaners and most alkalis. It has 3 TIMES the puncture protection of latex and is often used by people with an allergy or intolerance to latex. People who have an allergy to peanuts will often also have an intolerance to latex as it is the same protein.
These gloves are powder free although they are as easy to get on and off as a powdered latex or vinyl glove. They fit just like a latex glove. The difference is they will not tear or rip as you are pulling them on. There are 100 gloves per box and we offer extra special prices for carton (10 box) quantities - please ask. Blue Armour are FDA and CE approved. They are light blue in colour (so ideal for food processing) and come in sizes from small to 2XL.
In the past hospitals and medical facilities have tended to use latex disposable gloves for cost reasons. The price of these nitrile gloves has now dropped significantly and the superior protection they offer combined with the reduction in waste due to non-tearing and longer life, means that nitrile gloves are now the preferred disposable glove in advanced medical facilities and laboratories. Blue Armour Nitrile gloves are stronger and offer better protection and feel than Hi Risk Latex gloves that typically come in boxes of 50 and so on a cost per glove basis are more expensive.
Armour Safety also have their own brand of super tough nitrile gloves known as Black Armour. These gloves are super strong and their black colour makes them ideal for many applications. To find out more about Black Armour or get a free sample click here
