Chlorination is a process of washing and rinsing whereby the stickiness of the latex is removed by modifying the rubber surface. This produces a smooth non-tacky surface on the gloves, which can be donned without the aid of dusting powder. The chlorination process also reduces the amount of extractable protein in the gloves
Gloves tJ,at are commonly used in the healthcare industry such as hospitals and clinics mainly to serve as barrier protection against
dangerous substances or transmission of viruses, bacteria or germs.
Sometimes these gloves are also used in the manufacturing industry such as food or high technology sectors
Gloves that are made for general use in households
Gloves made from natural rubber or synthetic rubber
Nitrile gloves are made from nitrile rubber, which is a synthetic rubber copolymer of acrylonitrile and butadiene. Nitrile gloves do not contain latex protein and therefore do not affect users with latex allergies
Polymer coated gloves are designed to reduce sensitivity to latex by coating the inside of the gloves with a layer of polymer that foons as a barrier to prevent the skin from coming into contact with the latex. It is

less expensive compared to Nitrile Gloves
Powder free gloves may contain up to 2 mg of powder in each glove and still meet Ibe FDA standards. These gloves are designed for more
stringent conditions whereby airborne particles can be an irritant in areas such as gynaecology, urology. dentislry, neonatal units, cardiothoracic respiratory medicine, operating theatres and laboratories whereby sensitive equipment is used
Manufactured specifically for use in surgery whereby the gloves are thinner Iban the standard gloves for added feel when perfooning surgery
Vinyl gloves are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a type of synthetic rubber. As Ibe level of protection is much lower than latex or nitrile, they are noonally used for cleaning food preparations and other industrial applications
