For our powdered gloves, extractable protein level is less than 200 microgram/gram, while powder level is below 120 milligram/glove. As for our powder-free gloves, extractable protein level is less than 50 microgram/gram, while powder level is below 2 milligram/glove.

 

 

Q:

Why is latex glove a better choice of protection?

A:

Latex, being the main raw material in rubber gloves manufacturing, is the gold standard for durability. It demonstrates superior elasticity, strength and barrier protection. It out performs vinyl as well as any synthetic rubber in terms of maintaining barrier integrity in routine and high risks procedures. Research shows that latex gloves provide up to 9 times more protection during normal use than non-latex gloves.
