Silver Disposable Gloves
Quality Performance in a Nitrile Silver Disposable Glove
Among the many colors now available in the disposable glove marketplace is the silver disposable glove from Halyard Health. These gloves provide excellent fit and feel compared to latex. The new nitrile formulation provides excellent tactile sensitivity, without sacrificing any of nitrile’s barrier properties or durability.
Acceptable Quality Level (AQL)
They also have an Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) of 1.0. That means they are significantly less likely to have critical defects than exam gloves that just meet the ASTM 2.5 AQL requirement.
A Silver Disposable Glove Alternative to Latex
Latex allergy is a concern within the healthcare industry. Halyard Health has created a silver disposable glove not made using natural rubber latex with the protection, comfort, and sensitivity of latex, at a comparable value. If you want to standardize on one exam glove for virtually all your needs, facility-wide, nitrile is an obvious choice. The Halyard patented proprietary technology boosts the tensile strength of nitrile—the force required to break through the glove—to increase its already superior barrier protection qualities.
The Tactile Sensitivity of Latex
The process also allows a reduction in glove thickness, which means that less force is required
to stretch the material. That provides a nitrile glove with the dexterity and tactile sensitivity of natural rubber latex.
