Latex-Free Single-Use Nitrile Gloves | 101

Whether industrial applications involve harsh chemicals or medical applications with exposure to bloodborne pathogens, a glove’s primary purpose is to protect the wearer’s hands from infection or contamination. Single-use nitrile gloves are perhaps the most popular disposable glove style today and are commonly worn in healthcare, food and beverage, cleanroom, tattoo, spas, security/law enforcement, automotive, janitorial, plumbing, paint shop and chemical manufacturing.


Nitrile is more durable, better suited for extended-duration use and provide a wide spectrum of protection in a variety of work settings. Offered in different thicknesses, nitrile conforms to hands for a uniform, more comfortable fit and have a longer shelf life than natural latex rubber.

  • Nitrile has many features that make it extremely versatile.
  • Flexible, tactile and semi elastic.
  • Conforms to hands as the nitrile warms from body heat for better dexterity.
  • Powder-free for no residue.
  • Latex-free for less allergic reactions
  • Chlorinated for easier glove changes.
  • Nitrile is recommended use on a wide variety of chemicals

With so many options, selecting the proper disposable nitrile glove to complete the task at hand can be challenging. Too thin of a glove results in permeation or tearing and too thick of a glove can reduce tactile sensitivity or create hand fatigue. MDS offers customers a wide variety of single-use industrial and medical grade nitrile gloves in different colors, lengths, thickness, textures and we’re proud to also offer a vast selection of sustainable nitrile gloves that are GreenCircle certified biodegradable.
