I am new to the forum and would love some feedback for those who have some time to respond. As I get into the industry as a supplier, I’ve learned that different disposable gloves are ideal for different tasks in the processing environment.
For example, those who do trimming tend to like the black nitrile gloves, but it’s seemingly more about the balance of strength and comfort since they wear the glove for extended periods of time. For extractions and distillates; however, I am finding that a thinner (less expensive disposable) is ideal so long as the finish on the gloves resists sticking to the product.
Question #1 - Are my observations accurate?
Question #2 - Are there other factors that are considered when choosing the right disposable glove for the job? (For example: Does exam-grade vs general purpose matter? What about the purity of the glove? Would you prefer a product that has limited chemicals within the glove? Did you know some gloves have fewer chemicals than others, or why this is important? Is it important to you?)
Any and all feedback would be awesome, as 100% of my job is disposable gloves and we are breaking into this market nicely thus far, but the more I learn the better I can focus my key products at tradeshows. We also have a new “green glove” which I’m trying to decide is right for this market or not.
Thanks in advance for your time and advice. You can reach me directly at [email protected] if you prefer.
