Nitrile gloves are the perfect compromise between latex and vinyl. Nitrile is made from an allergy-safe compound that feels a lot like latex, but it's much stronger and more comfortable to wear. Glove components comply with the provisions of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act that allow repeated use in direct contact with food. Nitrile is perfect for demanding applications, especially cleaning, dishwashing and auto work. They are 100 percent allergen-free because they are 100 percent latex-free and 100 percent silicone-free. Powder-free construction means the gloves go through an extra process of chlorinating the gloves, making it easier to take the gloves on or off. Gloves measure approximately 9-1/2" long and offer a 4.1 mil finger thickness, 3.7 mil palm thickness and 2.9 mil cuff thickness.
