Vinyl Gloves VS Nitrile Gloves


Commonly used disposable protective gloves look nothing the material is different. So what's the difference between Vinyl Gloves and Nitrile gloves? Here is to understand.

1. Different materials

Vinyl gloves: The main material for vinyl gloves is PVC.

Nitrile gloves: made from nitrile rubber.

2. Flexibility and touch:

Compared with vinyl gloves, nitrile gloves have excellent flexibility and touch. Nitrile gloves are more convenient and can flexibly complete various food processing tasks. Unlike nitrile gloves, vinyl gloves are looser, and nitrile gloves have a good touch. Compared with nitrile gloves, the use of vinyl gloves will affect work efficiency.

3. Different characteristics

Vinyl gloves: resistant to weak acid and alkali; Low ion content; Good flexibility and tactility; Suitable for semiconductor, liquid crystal, and hard disk production process.

Nitrile gloves: Nitrile test gloves can be worn on either hand, made of 100% nitrile latex, without protein, effectively avoid protein allergy; The main performance is puncture resistance, oil resistance, and solvent resistance; Hemp surface treatment, to avoid the slide of the appliance when using; High tensile strength prevents tearing during wear; Powder-free treatment, easy to wear, effectively avoid skin allergy caused by powder.

4. Food safety:

The main reason why food processing plants use blue nitrile gloves is that blue is easier to see than transparent. In the process of cutting fresh food, roasting and processing meat require the use of blue nitrile gloves. If fragments of transparent vinyl gloves or Latex Gloves are found in food, it will affect food safety. Nitrile gloves are the most suitable gloves for long-term food processing. It is durable and has a long service life. Vinyl gloves are only suitable for tasks such as sandwiches, and the use time is less than one hour. It is important to distinguish between these two uses to choose gloves of different materials to give full play to their respective abilities.

5. Use:

Vinyl gloves: suitable for cleanroom, hard disk manufacturing, precision optics, optical electronics, LCD/DVD LCD manufacturing, biomedicine, precision instruments, PCB printing, and other industries. Widely used in health inspection, food industry, chemical industry, electronics industry, pharmaceutical industry, paint coating industry, printing and dyeing industry, agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry, and other industries of labor protection and family health.

Nitrile gloves: mainly used in medical, pharmaceutical, health, beauty, and food processing industries.

6. Cost:

The total cost of nitrile gloves is lower than that of polyvinyl chloride gloves. Nitrile rubber materials are more durable, tougher, and have a longer service life. Vinyl gloves are not durable, not easy to break, and have no fit. Nitrile gloves can be used for 3-4 hours in a food processing environment, while vinyl gloves can only be used for 1-2 hours. Its frequency is 2-3 times that of nitrile gloves. Although it is said that the price of a single pair of vinyl gloves is cheaper than that of nitrile gloves, the actual total cost of nitrile gloves will be lower according to the high frequency of replacement.
