Nitrile disposable gloves are made of synthetic rubber. They contain no latex proteins and offer excellent resistance to wear and tears. Nitrile gloves are more puncture resistant than many other types of rubber gloves and can be used to offer superior resistance to many types of chemicals. They are often considered to be one of the strongest types of disposable glove and are generally safe for people who are allergic to latex. Unlike other disposable gloves, nitrile gloves have low resistance to friction and are very easy to slide on removing the need for powder on the inside like some other types of disposable gloves.
