Blue Disposable Gloves

Blue Disposable Gloves Versus Traditional Ivory-Cream

Latex, which was the first generation disposable glove, is a natural light ivory-cream color. Later, with advent of latex allergies and sensitivities, nitrile gloves were developed as an alternative. When nitrile gloves first came to the market, it was necessary to differentiate between the nitrile and latex, an important helpful practice for those with latex allergies. Now, My Glove Depot offers a blue disposable gloves in latex or nitrile, in a variety of thicknesses, textures and sizes.

Now Part of a Rainbow of Colors

In today’s market, blue disposable gloves made from nitrile are offered in a wide range of colors. With their high chemical resistance, conforming fit, and high puncture resistance nitrile gloves are a staple for a variety of applications in different colors. Still, blue is the most common.

Other Reasons Color is Important

Automotive technicians, for example, are fond of black nitrile disposable gloves as the color is suitable for rough, dirty tasks where the black color may conceal dirt, grease and grime. Although the color does not alter the usefulness of the glove, the black color is preferred by workers and leads to higher compliance rates.

Color Coding for Compliance

In some operations additional compliance is mandated beyond that of a worker’s preference. A system of rules and guidelines known as the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), is meant regulate safety in food production and processing. To prevent cross contamination, some factories, restaurants and kitchens will use color coding for various employment positions.

For instance, people who come in contact with vegetables might wear green disposable gloves, and those who handle seafood would wear blue disposable gloves, dairy will wear indigo, and black for meat. This practice is also followed for cutting boards, knives and other equipment, so adopting the practice for blue disposable gloves and other colors is fairly easy and straightforward.
