Causes of nitrile gloves allergy?

Nitrile butadiene rubber is produced by emulsion polymerization of butadiene and acrylonitrile. Its products have excellent oil resistance, high wear resistance, and good heat resistance. Using high-quality nitrile rubber with other additives, refined processing from; Without protein, Nitrile gloves themselves do not cause allergies in people.

So what causes nitrile gloves allergy?

1.Nitrile gloves with powder

Nitrile gloves are mainly made of nitrile rubber and can be divided into two categories: powder and powder-free. It has an anti-oil effect, does not contain latex protein, does not cause an allergic reaction, and has anti-static, aging, and oil resistance properties. The shape of the glove is designed according to the shape of the human hand, with great sensitivity, excellent tensile properties and puncture resistance, high tensile strength, and excellent wear resistance.

Nitrile gloves with powder may have serious effects on the user's skin. Glove powder may significantly reduce skin moisture and dry out the skin, which is the first sign of irritation. Glove powder may also damage hand epidermal cells by absorbing lipids, which maintain their normal cohesion. When epidermal protection is compromised, the permeability of chemicals and other allergens increases. Studies have shown that using powder-free gloves instead of powder-covered gloves can reduce symptoms of eczema and itchiness in the hands.

2. Mixed nitrile gloves

Mixed nitrile gloves are composite gloves with nitrile layer on the inner surface and latex layer on the outer surface after soaking the latex in the hand mold. The production process is hand dipping coagulant - soaking vulcanized latex - drying - soaking nitrile glue - drying and finalizing - demodulating - soaking chlorination - drying and finally drying.

Some people with sensitive skin touch the outer layer (latex) of the nitrile glove when they wear it and develop an allergy.

Later, people found that when they changed to a new brand of nitrile gloves, their hands did not itch immediately.


The first thing to consider when buying nitrile gloves is whether they meet the requirements of use. Do not covet cheap and buy nitrile gloves with less than the required quality, otherwise, it will affect the final product's excellent rate.
