It's what you can't see that delivers Quality
Not all exam gloves are created equal.
High performance and proven quality is critical in an environment where a breach caused by a tear can lead to occupationally acquired infection.1 HALYARD* Nitrile Exam Gloves provide optimal protection and performance when you need it most.
Beware of fillers
Nitrile is a man-made rubber, made from synthetic polymers including
butadiene and acrylonitrile. Butadiene creates flexibility and tear resistance, whilst acrylonitrile enhances chemical resistance. Poor quality or low cost nitrile gloves, often use ‘fillers’ to reduce costs, such as clay, calcium carbonate and silica. Fillers possess poor strength and flexibility properties, resulting in gloves that can tear easily and provide low chemical resistance. 2
