Powder-free gloves occupy most of the market share because they are the best choice for applications in many industries.
For example, powder-free disposable gloves are very suitable for the automotive maintenance industry. If you wear disposable gloves with powder, cornstarch particles will be dispersed into the air, and even affect the airtightness of the car windshield, becoming a potential source of pollution. In the case of paint, packaging and sealing applications, these particles will form fish eyes, which makes powder-free disposable gloves a better choice for these applications.
Another advantage of powder-free disposable gloves is that they are cleaner than powdered gloves, because the powder of powdered disposable gloves will remain on hands and clothing.
So how are powder-free disposable gloves produced?
Historically, when manufacturing powdered gloves, manufacturers would powder them so that they can be put on and taken off easily. After the gloves are removed, the manufacturers will rinse the gloves. As powder-free gloves become more and more popular, manufacturers have developed new methods to produce gloves without powdering.
One way to remove residual powder from gloves is chlorination. Chlorination is the application of chlorine or hypochlorite and hydrochloric acid solutions. This process weakens the adhesiveness of the natural rubber surface, allowing the gloves to slip off the hands instead of sticking to the skin, making them easy to wear. In addition, chlorination also removes residual powder and reduces latex protein in gloves. Therefore, this process is very common in the application of rubber gloves.
Another way to make powder-free disposable gloves easy to wear is to apply polymer coatings. Manufacturers use different types of polymers, including silicones, acrylic resins, and gels. When the glove is on the hand mold, this coating is applied to the inside of the glove. Because the surface friction of the polymer is smaller than that of the glove material, it can make the glove easier to wear. KIEYYUEL manufacturers use a polymer coating process to make nitrile gloves, which makes nitrile gloves not only easy to wear, but also healthier, hygienic and safe.
