Latex prices are increasing virtually on a day to day basis. Examination gloves are an essential part of any health business so Gloveman decided it was time to introduce a nitrile glove that can do the exactly the same job as a latex one.

Online PR News – 28-April-2011 – – Essentially when examining a patient or animal you need to be confident that the glove you use conforms to the necessary standards. You have to be assured that you will prevent the spread of infection and also to be satisfied you will not contract any infection, parasite or bacteria. Latex gloves are generally preferred by most users, but increased latex prices have put a strain on buyers. However, a new Nitrile glove is available from Gloveman Supplies Ltd.
Manufactured from nitrile butadiene, thus reducing the risk of hypersensitivity and allergic reactions, the gloves are available in different sizes, and are fully tested to comply with Medical Devices Directives 93/42/EEC and European Standards parts 1,2 and 3, EN374. The gloves have been specifically designed for medical procedures, offering high quality and are totally safe for use.
Amongst other testing the nitrile gloves are visually inspected for holes and minor defects, plus random samples are filled with 1000ml of water and thoroughly examined for leaks. Added to this they are tested to AQL 1.5 (Acceptable Quality Level) freedom from holes, ensuring safety with spills from chemicals, fluids and bloods.
The gloves are mildly chlorinated and thoroughly washed, are low in residue thus reducing the risk of contact dermatitis. They offer a typical break force is at 9 Newtons, but moreover the gloves are textured for improved wet grip, have beaded cuffs for added strength and easy donning, and are flexible for improved feel and fit, reducing fatigue during extended wear.
