Gloves can be categorized in two forms
In this article you will get to read about non-reusable gloves, which are used for plenty of purposes. They are available in various sizes.
Use correct glove size to avoid issues - too small can cause unnecessary hand fatigue and too tight can cause rashes. Size is measured around your knuckles in inches
Besides determining the glove size, you have to also know the materials used. Main materials used in manufacturing disposable wear include latex, nitrile and vinyl.
Rubber Latex - Disposable hand protections made from natural rubber latex is the original throwaway material, whose elasticity cannot be duplicated even by scientists. Moreover, it is inexpensive and so a dominant player in disposable glove sector. The quality and performance of the latex disposable gloves have consistently become high. It fits appropriately providing excellent finger dexterity, so it is used by surgeons. People allergic to latex can use another option. Gloves avert epoxies and solvents infecting your skin. Latex gloves keep your hands completely dry. They are also good for keeping your sweat or blood from getting on the hands. Thus your work surface remains hygienic.
Nitrile Latex - Nitrile is a synthetic option from which throwaway gloves are manufactured. Disposable nitrile gloves are easy to put on and take off. They are more resistant to tears and punctures. It splits when punctured and this allows instant awareness to possible bio-hazard contamination. Disposable work gloves can be worn under other gloves for extra protection and water-proofing. It is a trusted protective gear in industrial sector and an alternative for people allergic to latex.
Vinyl - Vinyl gloves are trusted mainly applied in food industries. They can be used when used near any heat source. Vinyl is neither a strong stuff nor an elastic material. These characteristics are displayed in its fitting (loose fit) and performance under challenging environment (tears easily). Non-reusable gloves are the best in handling food because they protect it from getting contaminated. Changing hand wears regularly reduces the hazards of cross contamination that leads to food-borne illnesses.

A white cotton glove and cotton jersey gloves are used for daily tasks and generally protects your hands from getting dirty and flaked. Padded cotton gloves shield your hands from slivers, dirt, vibrations, sharp edges as well as low level heat. Cotton work mitts are used in parts handling, food processing, warehousing, assembly, automotive sector, light heat application, metal stampings, electronic applications, meat packing, bakeries, air conditioning manufacturing, and light heat applications.
