Latex Disposable Gloves Facts
8 – 17% of all US health care workers have Latex allergies with users of Latex gloves in other industries experiencing similar reactions.
If you wear latex gloves everyday, then you have a high risk of eventually developing a latex allergy or dermatitis.
High allergy rates mean if you use Latex gloves in your industry you will more than likely need to run two types of gloves for the same task.
Latex gloves can be difficult to don without powder, and the powder adds to the skin irritation and allergy problems.
Latex gloves are made almost entirely from natural rubber (the rubber they make car tyres from), a raw commodity that is subject to large price movements.
Moderate chemical and puncture resistance is associated with Latex gloves meaning their principle market is the medical industry.
High levels of bio degradability and no issues with incineration for glove disposal.
Worldwide sales of Latex gloves have been on a steady decline for the last six years.
Summary – The best application for latex gloves is medical with proven protection from bio hazards like bacteria and viruses, however the need for a second glove alongside remains inescapable because of allergies.
