The type of material you select for your gloves will vary according to your task. For example, if you are dealing with oil based substances, you should not use latex gloves.
Sometimes the glove that is used to protect can become the hazard itself. Latex can cause an allergic reaction in some users and latex allergies can develop over time. In such cases, switching to nitrile or synthetic gloves can solve this problem.

Types Of Disposable Gloves
Nitrile gloves are made from synthetic rubber which is non-latex and protein free, so they are suitable for users with allergies to natural rubber proteins. They offer good resistance against oil, grease and a wide range of toxic chemicals and solvents. Nitrile gloves have puncture and abrasion resistant properties. Their elasticity is good, but not as good as the elasticity of natural rubber.
Vinyl gloves are ideal for users who are allergic to natural rubber latex protein. Vinyl gloves offer good resistance against oil, ozone, grease, acid and bases and provide a relaxed and comfortable fit that feels like a second skin. Vinyl gloves are generally very affordable and more cost-effective than latex and synthetic gloves.
Latex gloves offer the best barrier protection in areas of potential risk. The physical properties of the material provide excellent flexibility and protection yet still give a high degree of sensitivity. They are also very comfortable to wear. Latex outperforms other glove materials in terms of elasticity and tensile strength.
Soft vinyl gloves offer excellent levels of comfort, fit and flexibility. They are latex free, have anti-static properties and are designed for medical procedures. They are high quality and dependable.
