Nitrile Gloves

Disposable Nitrile gloves offer excellent snag, puncture, cut and abrasion resistance making them a great choice when body protection is paramount. Nitrile is close to latex in fit, feel, dexterity and durability, however is more resistant to oils, fats, solvents and chemicals.

Nitrile gloves are suitable for use in the following industry types:

• chemical industry
• tattooists
• veterinarians
• laboratories (excluding surgical)
• photo-chemical industry
• agricultural or pesticides applications
• meat processing
• medical applications

As they are made from nitrile butadiene, a synthetic rubber, Nitrile gloves are resistant to oil, fuel, greases, chemicals and solvents (excluding ketonic/acetone solvents). They do not contain latex so there is no risk of a reaction from anyone who is allergic to latex. They have a longer shelf life compared to latex gloves and are three times more resistant to punctures than latex (however once the glove is punctured it will tear completely).

They are most effective in breaking up electrostatic charges and contribute fewer particles that contaminate the work environment, so they are suitable for use in clean-rooms. Because Nitrile gloves tolerate higher temperatures than latex, they are a good fit for automotive applications.

Nitrile gloves can be dispensed from our Standard Glove Dispensers.

All Bastion nitrile gloves are fully compliant to international standards.
