In the past few months, hospitals have been purchasing more latex and nitrile gloves, plus personal protective equipment, than ever before! The COVID-19 pandemic has massively increased the demand for powder-free, safe, and high-quality disposable nitrile gloves in the UK at wholesale prices, and thanks to the PPE shortage earlier this year, there hasn’t been very much supply of nitrile gloves up until now. However, the PPE manufacturing industry has bounced back and we’re now distributing nitrile gloves all across the globe, to support hospitals and other medical establishments.
Nitrile gloves are used for a huge range of reasons. Firstly, they are strong and protective and can keep your hands safe from a range of harms, such as scalpel piercing, chemicals and fluids, and harmful microbes that could cause damage if spread or put into a wound. Since nitrile gloves are made from a highly refined and synthesized form of rubber with extra processes to remove the powder and allergic reaction causing rubber proteins, they are safe to use and cause very minimal skin irritation. They can be worn for long periods of time, and cling tightly to the hand.
In a hospital environment, if gloves do not fit, you can waste time trying to find the right size, or it might be more difficult to grip utensils if there is slack in the gloves. For this reason, nitrile gloves were developed and produced to be the better – albeit slightly more expensive – version of the classic latex glove. Nitrile gloves do of course cost a little bit more than latex gloves since they have a more complicated, lengthy and resource-dependent production process, but they are undeniably the superior option.
Nitrile gloves are also far more elastic and resist a lot of stretching and pulling, meaning they have a very low chance of spontaneously ripping or tearing in a strenuous environment. This means they are very popular since they can be used for very long periods of time, which is just perfect for hospital or laboratory environments.
