Qiyue shares with you: the difference between nitrile gloves and medical latex gloves

Summary

As we all know, although the scope of nitrile gloves and latex gloves is somewhat similar, they are not the same. So what is the difference between medical nitrile gloves and medical latex gloves? Follow Qiyue editor to understand their differences.

Material

  Latex gloves are also called rubber gloves. Latex is a natural material, derived from rubber tree sap. Natural latex is a biosynthetic product. Due to differences in tree species, geology, climate and other related conditions, its composition and colloidal structure will often appear huge difference. In the fresh latex without any substance, the rubber hydrocarbon only accounts for 20%-40% of the total, and the rest is a small amount of non-rubber components and water. Non-rubber components include proteins, lipids, sugars, and inorganic components. Some of them form a composite structure with rubber particles, and some are dissolved in whey or form non-rubber particles.

  Medical nitrile gloves are the popular name for nitrile gloves. Nitrile is a kind of rubber and is a key raw material for organic synthesis and pharmaceutical intermediates. Mainly synthesized from acrylonitrile and butadiene. Nitrile (jīng): A type of organic compound with a special odor that decomposes when exposed to acid or alkali.


Traits

  Latex gloves: Compared with nitrile gloves, the toughness and abrasion resistance are slightly inferior, but the elasticity is better. The abrasion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, and grease are slightly worse than nitrile, and the acid and alkali resistance is slightly better than nitrile. But it is not suitable for allergic skin and long-term wear.

  Nitrile gloves: The material is relatively hard, the elasticity is poor, the abrasion resistance is better, acid and alkali resistance (some nitrile gloves can not prevent acetone, strong alcohol), anti-static, and will not cause skin allergies, suitable People who are prone to allergies and wear it for a long time.
