There are many types of disposable gloves available so you can choose the type that works best for your needs. The following are some options to consider when you purchase gloves.

Medical Gloves

Exam gloves offer medical grade protection for those coming into contact with blood or bodily fluids, and are therefore preferred by doctors, dentists, hospitals and caregivers. Medical exam gloves are also ideal for incontinence management. Other medical gloves available include sterile gloves and surgical gloves, which are necessary for performing surgical procedures.

Nitrile vs. Latex

Of all disposable gloves, latex gloves provide the highest level of comfort, flexibility and more. Latex gloves provide excellent protection against bacteria and viruses. Because of their high tactile sensitivity, these gloves are preferred for precise or delicate work such as surgery.

If your skin is latex sensitive, however, latex-free gloves are for you. Of the different synthetic glove types available, gloves made of nitrile are often preferred, since disposable nitrile gloves provide comparable comfort and protection to that of latex gloves. Nitrile gloves also provide a high level of protection, with durable, puncture-resistant material that protects users from chemicals and viruses.

Another non-latex gloves option is vinyl gloves, which are generally cheaper than their nitrile counterparts and offer a lower level of protection. Vinyl gloves are ideal for those who prefer a cost-efficient synthetic glove that is comfortable and offers protection against chemicals, such as housekeepers, gardeners, painters and mechanics.

Powdered vs. Powder-Free Gloves

Besides the material the disposable gloves are made from, it is also important to consider powdered versus powder-free gloves. Powdered gloves help you get to work quickly due to their powdered insides which make them easy to slip on and off. More sensitive individuals, however, prefer powder-free gloves, which are also mess-free, leaving none of the residue powdered gloves leave behind.

Medical Glove Color

There are many different calculations that go into choosing the color for disposable gloves. Some prefer a clean-looking white medical glove to easily spot contamination and avoid the risk of reactions caused by the die in colored gloves. Others specifically prefer black latex gloves or black nitrile gloves, which cover up unpleasant messes, as well as the contrast that the dark color provides. Other alternatives for dark-colored gloves include blue and purple gloves. Another great use for black disposable gloves is as a first layer underneath a light-colored glove for cases when punctures and tears must be spotted immediately, such as when working with dangerous substances.
