Why out-of-date disposable gloves aren't recommend using?

1. Aging. Nitrile gloves and latex gloves will appear to age after placing for a long time. The tensile strength and elasticity are not as good as before, which affects the tear resistance and puncture resistance, and fails to provide the proper protective effect when used.

2. Pollution. Disposable gloves left in the air for a long time will stick to dampness and deteriorate, and they may become brittle after exposure to the sun. At the same time, bacteria content will also increase. Latex gloves exposed to light, heat, and oxygen for a long time will be yellow, affecting the use.
