What are powder-free latex gloves?

Latex gloves are made from natural rubber latex found in some trees and plants. Freshly harvested natural rubber comes in liquid form and then turns rubbery. Due to its accessibility and availability, latex is used in many industries and for many applications such as making latex gloves. Compared to synthetic rubber, latex doesn’t contain any chemicals.

Disposable latex gloves are the most popular type of disposable used on the market. This is because of their superior elasticity, durability, and comfortability. 

Powder-free latex gloves don’t contain any powder coating like cornstarch. The powder coating is typically applied to the latex gloves to make them easier to don and remove. Latex gloves should fit perfectly. However, due to their elasticity and rubbery texture, wearing and removing them can be a bit difficult. Latex gloves can also tear in the process. Hence, some people prefer powdered latex gloves. 

Despite the benefits of powdered gloves, powder-free latex gloves are still a more popular and most commonly used type of latex gloves. This is because the powder coating can cause irritation. Also, powdered latex gloves can leave a residue that can affect your tasks.

Benefits of Powder-Free Latex Gloves

Powder-free latex gloves are the most commonly used type of disposable gloves across multiple industries. This is because of the benefits of powder-free disposable gloves. Here are a few:

Reduce Risks of Allergic Reactions

Powder-free latex gloves are created to reduce the risks of developing latex allergic reactions due to consistent or regular use of latex gloves. The powder coating in the surgical gloves is made from powdered starch which can stimulate an allergic reaction. In addition, the powder can transfer to the airways and skin.

Enhanced Grip And Dexterity

Because of the absence of powdered starch, powder-free latex gloves allow the wearer to grip, hold, and use tools and equipment without problems. The powder coating makes disposable gloves slippery which is hazardous and dangerous when holding or using any tools, equipment, and glass objects. By wearing latex powder-free disposable gloves, you and your employees will not encounter any problems with gripping objects and hand movement.

Durable And Long-Lasting

Latex disposable gloves are very elastic which adds to their durability and strength. When worn properly, high-quality powder-free latex gloves can last for hours. However, you should always check the integrity of your disposable gloves. If you and your employees are wearing low-quality surgical gloves, there is a possibility that they can tear easily. This can lead to contamination or the spread of diseases and viruses. Always order your latex powder-free gloves from a reputable store like Gloves.com to ensure you are getting high-quality and durable powder-free latex gloves every time. 

Lowers Contamination Risks

Powdered disposable gloves are coated with a powdered coating making them easy to don and remove. However, this powder coating can transfer to your nose, the tools you are holding, the equipment you are using, the food you are cooking, and the liquids you are handling. This is unacceptable in health, food, automotive, and other industries. Therefore, it is required to wear powder-free disposable gloves in these industries, especially the healthcare and food handling industries, to avoid and reduce contamination risks.

They might not be as affordable as latex gloves but if you have latex allergies or sensitive skin, these types of disposable gloves will do the trick.
