VINYL GLOVES / VINYL EXAM GLOVES
If you’re looking for cheap disposable gloves, disposable vinyl gloves are your answer. They’re highly affordable, and come in many sizes and colors. Furthermore, these gloves are latex-free, accelerator free and unlikely to cause allergies
What are Vinyl Gloves Used for?
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) gloves are often utilized by medical professionals for minor hospital procedures with minimal exposure risk. Cooks, waiters, bakers and others employed in the food industry are also big users of these synthetic gloves. Pet owners keep them on hand for light grooming, and caregivers find them to be very practical for when dealing with unclean substances. Vinyl gloves are also commonly used for cleaning purposes.
Gloves can get used up quite quickly in most offices, and can be a significant expense. For this reason, disposable vinyl gloves are quite popular in doctors’ and dentists’ offices, since they’re the most cost-efficient option where frequent glove changes are mandatory. Instead of splurging on expensive latex gloves, healthcare facilities stay economical by stocking up on vinyl gloves. However, in the American Journal of Infection Control, Rego & Roley state that, “careful consideration to the degree of barrier effectiveness should be given before glove selection when the potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens or biohazard risks is a concern (1999).” This is because vinyl gloves are significantly more likely to break down during use, which can lead to harmful exposure.
Are Vinyl Gloves Safe for Food?
Quality vinyl exam gloves, such as Ambitex Powder-Free Vinyl Exam Gloves, are often used for food preparation. However, much like aluminum and other types of plastic products used with food, many people prefer BPA-free gloves to ensure complete safety.
