Vinyl gloves are a type of disposable glove. They are a synthetic glove material made from PVC. Vinyl is less elastic than nitrile and latex, giving it a looser fit and smooth, comfortable feel. They are often used in the manufacturing industry.
Most of our Vinyl gloves are available in powdered and powder free varieties. Powdered gloves are covered with a light dusting of a basic corn starch powder which helps to aid donning of the glove and also helps to absorb perspiration. Some users find this to be beneficial and increase comfort during prolonged usage. In clinical environments, powder free gloves may be preferable to minimise the risk of cross contamination occurring through natural dispersion of the powder.
