Superior barrier protection
The barrier properties of NR Latex make this the ideal glove for applications where the glove user is likely to be in contact with blood borne pathogens and other body fluids.
This superior level of barrier protection extends to the barrier permeation of viruses. Glove Plus Lightly Powdered latex gloves have been tested to, and passed, ISO 16044b:2003 “Resistance of Materials used in Protective Clothing to Penetration by Blood-Borne Pathogens” (viral testing).
Does this glove have any other benefits?
Powder free latex is manufactured to a watertight AQL of 0.65 for ‘pinholes’ which ensures a lower instance of tearing and product failure.
These gloves incorporate a rolled (beaded) cuff which reinforced the cuff area to prevent tearing when putting the glove on and also allows for a secure fit to garments, helping prevent liquids entering the wrist area of the glove.
The component materials in Glove Plus powder free latex comply with 27CFR 177. 2006 which means that these gloves are safe for use with food.
What about allergies?
Being made of Natural Rubber Latex (NRL), this glove is not suitable for individuals who are sensitised to the residual water soluble proteins present in all NR Latex gloves.
