Vinyl Gloves are an excellent choice for food service, salon, janitorial and other light industrial applications. Vinyl is a synthetic material made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It is less elastic than nitrile and latex, giving it a looser fit and a smooth, comfortable feel. It helps prevent allergic reactions to latex protein. Powder-free gloves leave no residue, reducing the risk of contamination, providing a safe solution to those affected by common glove allergies and sensitivities.
