Nitrile GlovesNitrile gloves are a type of personal protective equipment (PPE) made from synthetic rubber that is typically used by individuals that require reliable and consistent hand protection. They are highly resistant to punctures, tears, and abrasions but flexible enough to be used in a number of health related fields that require precision and control. Nitrile gloves are often used by individuals that are susceptible to latex allergies and are manufactured in either blue or purple colors to distinguish them from latex.
