What is Vinyl?

Vinyl is a synthetic glove material made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Unlike nitrile gloves, which are also made from synthetic materials, vinyl gloves consist of only PVC monomers, making them more cost-effective. Plasticizers are added to the PVC to make the material flexible, otherwise, the PVC would be rigid as it is when used to form pipe. The PVC material also features excellent tactile sensitivity for working with a textured surface. Vinyl is less elastic than nitrile and latex, giving it a looser fit and smooth, comfortable feel. Vinyl is a common latex-free glove alternative to nitrile and latex gloves when allergies are of concern, including the latex proteins of latex gloves or the petroleum properties of nitrile gloves.

Disposable vinyl gloves are an economical choice for tasks that require changing gloves often, making them a popular glove choice for food service, janitorial, and industrial applications. Vinyl gloves offer the barrier protection you need to deal with non-hazardous materials like food contamination, basic household cleanup, common cleaning chemicals or hair dyes.

How to Select the Best Vinyl Disposable Glove

The first step in selecting the best disposable gloves is to determine how the glove will be used and the purpose of the glove. Vinyl disposable gloves are available in two main categories: industrial grade and exam grade.

Industrial Grade Vinyl Gloves are best suited for light-duty industrial applications that involve contact with household cleaning chemicals, hair dyes, or raw meat. Some common questions to ask:

  • Will this glove be used in industrial applications where you need hand protection from common chemicals or food contamination? If yes, then an industrial grade glove with barrier protection is the best choice.

Exam Grade Vinyl Gloves are best suited for applications that require superb strength, durability and barrier protection against blood borne pathogens. Vinyl is latex-free and helps reduce allergic reactions so those with latex allergies can work comfortably. Some common questions to ask:

  • Will this glove be used in the medical industry, such as healthcare, dental, childcare, where you are at risk for exposure to blood borne pathogens? Do you need a loose fit and feel with the sensitivity of latex gloves? If yes, then a medical grade vinyl exam glove with excellent barrier protection will be a reliable choice.

Now that you have determined how the glove will be used continue to the next section “What is Industrial Grade versus Medical Grade?” to discover the differences between industrial grade and medical grade vinyl gloves and which is right for you.

Advance to the next section, “Vinyl Disposable Glove Texture, Finish, and Donning” to learn about other important features needed to get the job done.

Vinyl Disposable Glove Texture, Finish and Donning

It is essential to select the right texture, finish and donning features needed to get the job done. Texture is a key consideration when a sensitive touch is necessary. The vinyl glove finish is an important feature to facilitate donning and doffing. Depending on the style, vinyl gloves feature either a polymer coating or a powdered finish to make the glove easy to don.

  • Vinyl gloves feature a smooth finish for enhanced sensitivity in the palm and fingertips. This is essential when your job relies on touch such as dental, medical and agricultural fields.
  • Stretch vinyl is more elastic than the standard vinyl material, offering a snug fit and feel similar to that of latex. If you are required to wear gloves for a longer duration, stretch synthetic vinyl is flexible and minimizes the strain on your hands while working.
  • A finish is applied during the manufacturing process to make donning and doffing easier for powder-free vinyl gloves. A polymer coating is added on the inside of the glove to create less surface friction than the glove material, making it easy to don or doff, especially in wet conditions.
  • Powder-free vinyl gloves do not leave behind a messy residue, optimizing a clean finish after you work; for example when working with sticky adhesives or wet paint. Powder free gloves have a chlorinated or polymer finish to make them easier to don or doff. A powdered glove features a powdered finish which absorbs excess moisture on the hands, making it easy to put on, or remove when a fresh pair is required. Additionally, a beaded cuff around the base makes the glove easier to don and prevents ripping or tearing at the wrist.
  • These gloves are so tough this box may turn out to be a lifetime supply. But then again, my next roll of paper towels may be a lifetime supply, since I'm 67. Seriously, these gloves are tough, and though touted as single use, I've been using the same pair in my woodworking workshop for about two weeks so far. The bright orange color is an added safety measure for me
