Vinyl Gloves

Disposable Vinyl gloves are made from a synthetic, non-biodegradable, protein-free material, consisting of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and plasticizers. Since vinyl gloves are synthetic and non-biodegradable, they have a longer shelf life than latex gloves, which often start to break down over time. Vinyl gloves are a popular choice for the food industry and situations where high levels of durability and protection are less of a priority. While they may be less durable, and a looser fit compared to other gloves, they are the least expensive option. They are good for short-term, low-risk tasks when non-hazardous materials are being handled. Vinyl gloves have anti-static properties and are lightly powdered, which makes them easier to put on.

Bastion Vinyl powder-free gloves can be dispensed from walls using our Standard Glove Dispensers or, for ultimate control, our Progenics Cuff-First Dispensing System using larger square boxes with openings at the base to allow gloves to be pulled out (this combination of special box and dispenser reduces possible cross-contamination of germs).

The drawbacks of vinyl gloves is that they offer little protection from chemicals and micro-organisms, they are however well suited for handling non-hazardous materials and chemicals. Vinyl is also not very form-fitting compared to latex or nitrile, giving the wearer limited dexterity and a higher chance that the glove will catch and tear. These are best used for food service and other applications where product protection is necessary but does not require much dexterity or tactile precision. All Bastion vinyl gloves are fully compliant to international standards.
