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.

The Best Black Nitrile Glove for Workplace Safety

The Best Black Nitrile Glove for Workplace Safety

Selecting a disposable glove for workplace safety can be a complicated and intimidating process. The best disposable glove for job safety protects the user’s hands from harsh chemicals and solvents, and is selected based on how long and in what tasks the glove will be used. Furthermore, worker compliance in using personal protection equipment is often just as dependent on comfort and glove performance as it is on the protection provided by the glove. If a glove does not provide the right fit, feel, or grip, workers will often remove a glove in its entirety, exposing them to hazards. Workplace safety starts by making the correct glove selection and balancing performance, protection, comfort, and user satisfaction.

The Gloveworks Heavy Duty Black Nitrile Glove is a heavy-duty, latex-free, nitrile glove that can be used in the toughest of applications but still has the dexterity of a lighter-weight glove.  It is powder-free, so there is no interference with adhesives or coatings.

Top JanSan Industry Growth Opportunities


Safety continues to be a major concern in the JanSan industry. Whether it’s protection from harsh chemicals, avoiding cross-contamination, or preventing the spread of infection – gloves are an essential tool for safety in the JanSan industry. Consider these recent reports highlighting the top JanSan industry growth opportunities.

Many facilities across all sectors – Healthcare, industrial, education, government, commercial, domestic, hospitality, and food service – rely on the products and services that the JanSan industry provides. The JanSan industry in the U.S. is projected to have annual growth of 33% reaching $2.0 billion by 2022.  In fact, the JanSan industry has the second-highest revenue growth potential of all sectors, indicating the market is ripe for expansion. The forecasted growth for the JanSan industry is positive with two sectors fueling the demand – Real Estate, and Healthcare.

Top SanJan Industry Growth Opportunities


  1. Commercial Real Estate:  After years of sluggish growth, office space is being leased at the fastest clip since the great recession, according to a recent report by Reis Inc. Employers added 15.3 million square feet of office space in the fourth quarter, more than any other quarter since the third quarter of 2007, according to real-estate research service Reis Inc. This news should prove positive for the professional cleaning industry.  Higher occupancy translates to more building space that needs to be cleaned, and more cleaning tools, equipment, and chemicals will need to be purchased.

  2. Infection Prevention in Healthcare:  The growing demand for infection prevention products and services is forecasted to positively impact the JanSan sector. According to a new study, “Infection Prevention Products & Services,” by Market to Market, the demand for infection prevention products and services is forecasted to expand 6.7% percent annually to $16.7 billion in 2020. The study also reveals that increasing pressures on hospitals and other healthcare facilities to decrease rates of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) will boost revenues generated by infection prevention supplies, equipment, and services.

With the potential for vinyl, nitrile and latex glove sales, distributors do not want to miss out on the many sales opportunities in the JanSan industry. Workers use cleaning chemicals and other tools to perform their jobs, while the most important tool – personal protection equipment – is often ignored resulting in illness, injury, and fatalities.

3 Smart Sales Tips for JanSan Safety

  1. Stay current on Trends
    Trends, such as increased health and safety, energy and labor savings, and sustainability, have fueled the cleaning industry and will continue to do so for years to come. Manufacturers in the JanSan industry will continue to invest in research and development and product innovation to stay on the cutting-edge.  This is a great outlook for distributors who will have a steady stream of new products that provide customers with innovative solutions to do their work safer and more efficiently. The needs are virtually endless and so is the income stream for those that stay informed and take action.
  2. Understand what matters
    Find out what’s really important to your customers.  Do you really understand your customer’s unique needs?  Curiosity is a powerful trait. The most successful  businesspeople will tell you that curiosity is one of the best qualities a salesperson can have. Curious salespeople ask probing questions and take a genuine interest in learning about their clients. if you stop selling and start asking, you’ll find out what motivates them to make decisions, and, by listening, you’ve now built a trusting relationship. It’s a win-win-win.
  3. Promote Solutions
    How do you add value?  Smart distributors understand this key fact – you don’t sell products – you sell solutions.  When describing the JanSan products that you sell, be specific about the problems that they solve for your customers in each sector in JanSan – education, government, healthcare, hospitality, food service, commercial and domestic.  Sure, you sell disposable latex, nitrile vinyl, and poly gloves, but what do you really sell?  Emphasize the solutions your products provide –
  • Healthcare: “We help hospitals reduce the spread of infections.”
  • Education:We help schools reduce student absenteeism.”
  • Industrial:  “We help facilities increase productivity.”
  • Foodservice: “We help restaurants reduce cross contamination.”

Disposable Glove Growth Opportunities in the JanSan Industry


With regard to disposable glove revenue, the janitorial-sanitation industry has one of the lowest figures, but that does not mean it is not a target market for distributors. In fact, the Jan-san industry has the second-highest revenue growth potential of all sectors, indicating the market is ripe for expansion.

Jan-san employees use gloves for various reasons, including protection from harsh chemicals and pathogens. Additionally, they use an average of 15 pairs per day, which is on par with the usage rates in the medical, dental and food processing industries.

With the potential for vinyl, nitrile and latex glove sales, distributors do not want to miss out on the many sales opportunities in the jan-san industry.

The Right Janitorial Gloves for the Job: Part IV JanSan


Workers in the janitorial and sanitation industry need the protection of disposable gloves to guard against various health and safety risks.  The primary hazard these employees encounter is the very chemicals they use to clean. According to the Hawaii Department of Health, six out of every 100 professional janitors suffer chemical-related injuries, which include burns to the skin. Various harmful chemicals can be found in glass, metal and other cleaners, including hydrofluoric acid, nitrilotriacetate, and phosphoric acid.

The second hazard is contact with bloodborne pathogens. According to the California Department of Industrial Relations, this risk includes on-the-job transmission of germs. Transmission can occur if janitorial staff members come into contact with infected bodily fluids on soiled surfaces, sanitary napkins or tissues.

Considering these risks, janitorial employees need a barrier to protect themselves. Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Dunn and Bradstreet and AMMEX Corporation showed disposable glove revenue in the janitorial industry reached nearly $200 million in 2012 while experiencing 30 percent average annual growth, indicating the need for comprehensive protection.

Furthermore, janitorial staff members need to switch gloves between tasks. If they are cleaning toilets in a facility, for instance, they should don a new pair of gloves before they clean sinks to avoid transferring pathogens and chemicals from the toilets to the sinks. Janitorial employees use many harmful chemicals, which is one reason they should wear gloves while they work.

With these considerations in mind, here are some of the glove materials typically used in the janitorial industry:

Vinyl
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), or vinyl, gloves are the most commonly used janitorial gloves in SanJan applications. These gloves are an inexpensive alternative to latex and nitrile gloves.

Vinyl gloves can be purchased in powdered or powder-free and exam- or industrial-grade variations. This gives janitorial staff members options to find the right level of protection for their work environments. Exam-grade gloves, for example, are for applications involving exposure to bodily fluids and go through special testing at the factory level that is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

With regard to chemical resistance, vinyl gloves are recommended for protection against various substances. They can withstand hydrofluoric, phosphoric and 10 percent concentrated nitric acid, among other chemicals typically present in janitorial applications. Always confirm by conducting chemical resistance on-site testing of any glove before use.

For guarding against bacteria, there are antimicrobial vinyl gloves. These products have additional protection in the glove material to prevent the growth of microorganisms by disrupting cell walls.

 “Vinyl gloves can withstand hydrofluoric, phosphoric and 10 percent concentrated nitric acids, among other chemicals typically present in janitorial applications.”

 Nitrile and latex
These two glove materials are also used for janitorial applications.

Nitrile gloves provide superior chemical resistance, standing up to harmful solvents such as 38 percent concentrated hydrochloric acid, 2-butoxyethanol and sodium hypochlorite. As always, perform on-site chemical resistance testing of any glove before use. These latex-free gloves are made from a durable synthetic rubber that is extremely puncture and tear resistant and perfect for heavier duty tasks.

Natural rubber latex gloves also stand up to many of the chemicals that are present in the janitorial industry and provide tear and puncture resistance. These attributes are perfect for addressing the specific needs of this industry, but latex gloves are not as widely used because many people have latex allergies due to the rubber’s proteins. Additionally, repeated exposure to the material can lead someone to develop a latex allergy. Reactions can range from dermatitis to anaphylaxis.

With these considerations in mind, vinyl gloves are the most cost-effective option for janitorial employees.  If you sell to janitorial industries but do not yet sell gloves, become an AMMEX distributor today to maximize this opportunity for growth.”
