Features and uses of latex gloves

Latex gloves are individual personal protection equipment that protect individuals in the workplace. They are divided into two main categories: those impregnated with an inner and those called watertight.

Latex gloves have the feature of providing greater ease in work movements meaning they offer greater textile comfort and excellent tear resistance. Therefore this personal protective equipment could be used for jobs such as handling frozen goods, cleaning, etc.

 

With respect to latex-coated gloves, which are made of natural rubber, these give a better grip and adherence to materials. They are suitable for work requiring good resistance to cuts and, at the same time, they have the tact and flexibility for the industrial, agricultural and construction sectors.

 

One popular use for this type of glove is as disposable gloves, in healthcare or in the hospitality industry, or as a multi-use glove for tasks such as light cleaning that generally tend to be less demanding or those in contact with water, such as processes of packing fruit and vegetables.

 

It is important to ensure that these gloves are checked and to make sure that they have no holes at the end of the working day, since as these are more flexible they can be damaged more easily than others and are usually used for very specific jobs.

 

By way of a conclusion, these gloves have a distinct advantage over other types of gloves since they allow greater mobility and better dexterity when working, allowing workers to get the right hand position.

 

In MAFEPE, as designers and manufacturers of gloves, we offer a wide range of latex gloves that fit the needs of each profession.
