I’m Betsy, a Do-It-Yourself mom and co-owner of a family woodworking business. I like to say my children were born into wood dust but they made it gold. When I found out I was expecting my first child, Sarah, my husband and I had just quit our day jobs to take his home-shop business full time – I was terrified that our new family member would be born into a struggling household.

Medical Gloves Defined

Exam-grade gloves, often referred to as medical gloves, were originally designed for non-surgical medical procedures. They differ from industrial-grade gloves due to one factor: rigorous factory-level testing. This testing is based on acceptable quality limits (AQL) set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. An AQL limit sets a standard for how many gloves within a batch can fail testing. A low AQL (meaning a small number of defective gloves) for exam-grade gloves is necessary to ensure the glove is of a high enough quality that it can provide the proper barrier protection against extreme risks.

#NotWithoutGloves: The Danger of Dry Cleaning Chemicals

We host our annual #NotWithoutGloves social media contest for several reasons: to have a bit of fun with our followers and to highlight the need for disposable glove use. While many contest submissions focus on dirty jobs and rank substances no one chooses to touch without gloves, there are more dangerous substances that require disposable gloves – chemicals. Workers in the dry cleaning industry need to be particularly careful as they come into frequent contact with a harsh chemical called perchloroethylene.

Hazards in the Automotive Industry: Auto Shop Chemicals

Randy Bigness worked as an auto mechanic for years without much concern for his health. He was frequently fatigued, but he figured most mechanics got tired from working hard. Getting sick often also seemed like a common consequence of the profession he was in. It wasn’t until he started to develop more severe infections and his body started refusing antibiotics for treatment that he thought something else might be wrong.

Is Safety Part of Your Uniform?

You wake up to the sound of your blaring alarm. Its 5 am and the June sun blares into your bedroom through the window. You pull yourself through the motions of the morning: taking a hot shower and dressing for the upcoming work day. The clothing you pull over your body is made from woven flame-retardant fibers and is highly resistant to abrasion and tearing.

The Best Nitrile Glove For Safety

Workplace safety affects all industries from the food service industry to protection against biological agents in the medical industry. Accidents and injuries in the workplace can be reduced greatly by having the proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

Disposable gloves are an essential part of a PPE program when it comes to protecting workers hands while they work with harmful chemicals. AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile glove can handle all your toughest safety needs.

Best Nitrile Glove For Safety

AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile glove is our newest glove. It is a premium heavy-duty glove that provides the toughest protection. When it comes to safety, this is the best disposable glove to choose for your workplace for three reasons: resistance, texture, and visibility.

Green Nitrile Resistance

The AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile glove features excellent resistance against common chemicals, like pesticides, and many other specialty chemicals, such as iodine, brake fluid or butane. Nitrile butadiene rubber is more resistant than natural rubber latex to chemicals, oils and acids, and has superior strength.

The AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile is three times more puncture-resistant than latex. The green nitrile glove has a 8-9 mil thickness, with benefits of more texture.

Green Nitrile Texture

The AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile glove features a raised diamond texture for maximum grip and enhanced dexterity. There are more than 3,000 raised diamonds per glove that allow more liquid to pass through the channels, enabling greater surface area. The aggressive raised texture on the front and the back of the glove enables greater surface contact, providing a safer way to get the job done.

Green Nitrile Visibility

The Gloveworks Heavy Duty Green Nitrile is the perfect glove for dark or dimly lit working environments, like an automotive garage. With its bright green color, this high visibility glove leads to higher compliance as it is easier for safety directors to see from a distance. Workers are less likely to be injured, making the AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile an excellent part of any PPE.

All of these features make this glove ideal for a variety of industrial applications, including automotive, manufacturing, and chemical industries. Better performance, better protection, better safety. Add AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile to your line-up and order now!

AMMEX Gloveworks HD Black Nitrile Powder Free Industrial Gloves: GWBN

AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile Powder Free Industrial Gloves: GWGN

AMMEX Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile Powder Free Industrial gloves are the most recent addition to the AMMEX HD Nitrile Glove lineup.

Like the Gloveworks HD Orange Nitrile and Gloveworks HD Black Nitrile, the Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile has the aggressive raised diamond texture, with 60 percent more surface area, in order to provide a firm, consistent grip. The diamonds channel away liquids, so even when the glove is wet, you can still hold on tight. In addition, the raised diamond texture on the outside provides a reverse texture on the inside that helps air to circulate, keeping hands drier than non-textured nitrile, latex, or vinyl gloves.

The texture of the AMMEX Gloveworks Green Nitrile glove is one benefit, but the glove color and glove thickness just add to this glove’s uniqueness. The high-visibility green color really demands to be seen, so you won’t lose sight of your co-workers’ hands, and they won’t lose sight of yours. This is a major safety feature when you are working with heavy machinery or in dimly lit areas.

AMMEX Gloveworks Green Nitrile gloves boast an 8-mil thickness, which means they’re durable and resistant to punctures, tears, and rips – in fact, three times more resistant than latex or vinyl. Just like our orange and black nitrile disposable gloves, the Gloveworks HD Green Nitrile gloves will protect you against solvents, grease, pesticides, cleaning solutions, and many specialty chemicals.

Top Rated Nitrile Gloves

Once you’ve tried the AMMEX lineup of Gloveworks HD Nitrile Powder Free Industrial gloves in orange, black, or green, you won’t want to wear anything else. No other disposable glove measures up to their level of safety and comfort, and the diamond texture is in a class by itself.
