- Food Services
Industrial grade nitrile gloves are best for applications that necessitate handling harsh chemicals and solvents. Typical industries that use this grade of nitrile glove include automotive, janitorial, and any other industry that involves chemical safety, and even food service. The most important features of this category are the glove’s chemical resistance and high levels of puncture resistance.
- Dental Offices
Exam, or medical grade gloves, are best for use where there is a risk of coming in contact with blood born pathogens or environmental contaminants. This category of nitrile glove is commonly found in hospitals, medical and dental offices, and laboratories. Medical grade gloves are rigorously tested to meet specific guidelines from the FDA. This ensures that these gloves will provide the strength, durability, and barrier for these applications. Due to the fact that they eliminate the potential for any allergies, nitrile gloves are particularly popular in medical and dental offices.
Three different classes of medical-grade gloves:
- Class I:
These devices are considered low risk and have the least regulatory controls.
- Class II:
These devices have a higher risk than Class I and have greater regulatory controls to ensure the device’s safety and effectiveness.
- Class III:
These are the highest risk devices and have the highest level of regulatory control. Class III devices typically must be approved by FDA before they are marketed.
Powder vs Powder-Free Gloves:
Effective January 18, 2017 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the use and sale of powdered surgical and patient examination gloves in the United States. Risks of illness and injury associated with glove powder outweighed its benefits to the user.
