Genuine Joe GJO15363 5-Mil Light Powder Industrial Nitrile Gloves, Extra Large, Light Blue (Pack of 100)
Size:X-Large | Unit Count:100 The Genuine Joe GJO15363 5-mil light powder industrial nitrile gloves are disposable, are light blue in color, and are suitable for a variety of single-use applications. The gloves are lightly powdered for slipping onto the hands. Nitrile provides better elasticity than vinyl, better puncture resistance than latex or vinyl, and better abrasion resistance than chloroprene, and it reduces the likelihood of allergic reaction. The material is 5 mils (5 thousandths of an inch) thick for strength. The gloves have a textured surface for improved grip in wet or dry conditions compared to gloves with a smooth texture. The length of the gloves can cover and help protect the wrists.Disposable and limited-use gloves are used in medical, forensic, scientific, food service, and industrial applications. Disposable gloves are commonly made from flexible materials such as latex, nitrile, chloroprene, and vinyl. While most disposable gloves are designed for use on either hand, some can be purchased in hand-specific models. They are offered powdered or powder-free; silicone or silicone-free; chlorinated or non-chlorinated; coated or uncoated; with a standard- or extended-length cuff; sterile or non-sterile; and with textured or smooth fingers, fingertips, and palms. A glove’s abrasion, cut, and puncture resistance are defined by glove material and thickness, and may be improved with the use of exterior coatings. Abrasion resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from contact with rough surfaces. Cut resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from blades and sharp instruments. Puncture resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from objects such as needles. Chemical resistance means the glove helps protect the hand from certain chemicals, and varies by glove material.
