The difference between Nitrile and PVC gloves


Nitrile gloves and PVC gloves are two types of gloves that are commonly used in the work and medical fields. Although they are all gloves used to protect people's hands from chemicals, bacteria, etc. But there are some differences between them in terms of material, performance and scope of application.
1. Material difference
The material used in nitrile gloves is a kind of artificial rubber. This artificial rubber is mainly synthesized from acrylonitrile and butadiene. It is a key material for organic synthesis and pharmaceutical intermediates.
PVC gloves are made of polyvinyl chloride. Made by special process. Allergen-free, powder-free, low dust generation, low ion content. Does not contain plasticizers, esters, silicone oil and other ingredients. Has strong chemical resistance. Good flexibility and touch. It is convenient and comfortable to wear, has anti-static performance, and can be used in a dust-free environment.
2. Different characteristics
The main properties of nitrile gloves are puncture resistance, oil resistance and solvent resistance. It is processed through powder-free. Easy to wear. It can effectively avoid skin allergies caused by powder. And it's made of 100% nitrile latex. Does not contain protein. Effectively avoid protein allergy. Hemp finish. The slipping of the appliance during use is avoided. High tensile strength avoids tearing while wearing.
PVC gloves are resistant to weak acids and alkalis. Low ion content. Good flexibility and touch. Suitable for semiconductor, liquid crystal and hard disk production processes. PVC gloves have excellent puncture resistance. Suitable for use in industrial fields. Especially if you need to handle sharp objects.
3. Different uses
Nitrile gloves are mainly used in medical, pharmaceutical and food processing, washing and cleaning fields.
PVC gloves are suitable for clean room, hard disk manufacturing, precision optics, optical electronics, LCD/DVD liquid crystal manufacturing, biomedicine, precision instruments, PCB printing and other industries. Widely used in health inspection, food industry, chemical industry, electronics industry, pharmaceutical industry, paint industry, printing and dyeing industry, agriculture, forestry, animal husbandry and other industries for labor protection and family hygiene.
Although there are differences in their materials and performance. But they all have excellent properties. Can meet the needs of different fields. when choosing gloves. The most suitable gloves should be selected according to the specific usage scenarios and needs.
