Latex Gloves

Suitable for: Incidental contact
Latex safety gloves are good for handling water-based and biological materials, but they are not appropriate for handling organic solvents. They offer little chemical protection and detecting puncture holes is difficult. Use of latex gloves may also trigger allergic reactions.

Nitrile Gloves

Suitable for: Incidental contact and extended contact
Great general-use gloves, nitrile safety gloves work well for handling solvents, greases oils and some bases and acids. Tears and breaks are easy to detect, and nitrile safety gloves are a good alternative for people with latex allergies.
