1、Different materials

  Latex gloves, also called rubber gloves, are made of latex naturally formed by the sap of the rubber tree. Nitrile gloves are made of banana as the main raw material, combined with acrylonitrile and butadiene two chemical components, belongs to organic compounds.

2、Different qualities

  Latex gloves will be slightly inferior to nitrile gloves in terms of toughness, abrasion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, and grease resistance, but are stronger than nitrile gloves in terms of acid and alkali resistance. Nitrile gloves are harder materials, in addition to the above characteristics, but also has anti-static, long-term wear will not lead to skin allergies.

3、Maintenance method

  The use of nitrile gloves need to pay attention to avoid sharp clothing, but also do not pull or wear, otherwise it is easy to cause damage to the glove, shorten the life of the glove. Latex gloves are less breathable and should not be worn for a long time, otherwise it is easy to sweat leading to the accumulation of sweat in the glove.
