Latex and nitrile gloves are both commonly used in healthcare and other industries for added hand protection. However there are some differences between the two.
Material: Latex gloves are made from natural rubber latex, while nitrile gloves are made from synthetic rubber. This means that while nitrile gloves are generally hypoallergenic then they’re less likely to cause an allergic reaction than latex gloves.
Strength and durability: Nitrile gloves are generally stronger and more durable than latex gloves, making them more resistant to punctures and tears. This makes them ideal for mechanical or industrial work.
Chemical resistance: Nitrile gloves are more resistant to chemicals than latex gloves, which can be degraded or damaged by some chemicals. This makes nitrile gloves a better choice where you will come in contact with chemicals, such as laboratory work.
Comfort: Latex gloves are generally more comfortable than nitrile gloves. Latex gloves fit the hand more easily, which can make them feel natural and comfortable.
Cost: Nitrile gloves are generally more expensive than latex gloves due to their durability and strength.
The choice between latex and nitrile gloves will depend on your specific application and individual preferences.
