Nitrile VS Latex VS Vinyl gloves-YICHANG
With the outbreak of the pneumonia epidemic, the demand for disposable protective gloves in the marketing market has been greatly expanded.In fact, disposable gloves can be divided into Nitrile gloves
,Vinyl gloves and natural Latex Gloves
depending on the material.So what is the difference between them?
The first material, nitrile gloves are NBR, a styrene-butadiene rubber, mainly composed of acrylonitrile and butadiene;Vinyl Gloves
are made from polyethylene.Natural latex gloves are made from a natural latex mattress (NR).
So what are their strengths and weaknesses?
Nitrile gloves material biodegradable, wearing is not easy to skin allergy, can be added to the color paste, the color is also more gorgeous, the defect is poor ductility, the price is higher than natural latex gloves.
The advantage of vinyl gloves is that they are cheap and can be used with a paste to create a bright color. The disadvantage is that vinyl gloves have a high viscosity grower, which is internationally recognized as one of the most effective physical and mental health growers, are volatile in heat and are not biodegradable.
The advantage of natural latex gloves is that they are biodegradable and malleable. However, some groups will suffer from allergies if they wear natural latex gloves for a long time.
What about their antistatic properties?
ESD refers to the antistatic properties of products. Generally speaking, nitrile rubber products have antistatic properties, while PVC and natural latex do not have antistatic properties, so they are not suitable for ESD areas.
In fact, the antistatic property of nitrile gloves is super glue making secret recipe, different manufacturers of the glue have different ESD performance of the products manufactured, is associated with gloves manufacturers not big, and even the same super glue to make the products on the performance will also differ, so nitrile butadiene gloves can be used as general application of antistatic gloves,But the performance is less than the technical professional antistatic gloves.
