How To Distinguish Latex Gloves, PVC Gloves and Nitrile Gloves?

Jan. 22, 2021

This is the Latex Glove Exporter to introduce the difference between latex gloves, pvc gloves and nitrile gloves

Material difference

Latex gloves are also rubber gloves. Latex is a natural material derived from rubber tree sap. Natural latex is a biosynthetic product.

Nitrile is a rubber, mainly synthesized from acrylonitrile and butadiene.

PVC gloves are made of PVC paste resin, plasticizer, stabilizer, viscosity reducer, PU, and demineralized water as the main raw materials, through a special process.

Classification difference

Latex Glovesare divided into powder-normal type and powder-free purification type, smooth and pitted surface slip resistance.

The nitrile glove model is divided into non-slip palm numb surface and hand tip numb surface non-slip, overall numb surface non-slip, generally no powder.

The surface of the PVC gloves is flat, no color difference, no impurities, no taste, uniform color and uniform quality.


 Latex gloves and Nitrile Gloves are both degradable, easy to handle, and environmentally friendly.

 PVC is non-degradable, pollutes the environment, and is not conducive to environmental protection.


Latex gloves contain protein and are not suitable for people with allergies.

Nitrile gloves do not contain protein, amino compounds and other harmful substances, and rarely cause allergies. Suitable for all people.

PVC gloves do not contain allergens and are suitable for all people.


Latex gloves are soft and wear-resistant, and have better elasticity than nitrile gloves and PVC gloves. The elasticity of PVC gloves is the lowest among the three.

Puncture resistance

The toughness and abrasion resistance of latex gloves are slightly inferior to those of nitrile gloves.

The puncture resistance of nitrile gloves is three to five times higher than latex, providing a natural protective barrier for people who need to use sharp tools.

The toughness and abrasion resistance of PVC gloves are the lowest. Much lower than latex and eye-catching gloves.
