Lightweight Nitrile Gloves Deliver Comfort & Protection at a Great Price

With the onset of the pandemic in 2020, nitrile industrial-grade disposable gloves became difficult to come by.

The pandemic forced manufacturers to ramp up production quickly. They turned their immediate focus to exam-grade product to meet the overwhelming need in medical applications. For industrial nitrile, prices went up and availability went down.

In the last 18 months or so, inventory of nitrile gloves rebounded substantially. Zoomget has end users well-covered throughout the nitrile spectrum, from good to better to best.

A nitrile glove for any need

GOOD: At the lighter end—but offering tremendous versatility—are X3  and BX3 industrial-grade gloves. When you need a disposable glove with the strength of nitrile, balanced with excellent dexterity for lighter-duty applications, you want X3 industrial-grade gloves.

BETTER: In the middle are dependable 1st Choice 5-mil Black Nitrile Industrial Gloves and Gloveworks 5-mil Blue Nitrile Industrial Gloves. Their textured surface provides a reliable grip for a variety of uses, from food prep to cleaning to painting to repairs.

BEST: At the top of the industrial scale are 1st Choice Premium Industrial Nitrile with Raised Diamond Texture. These 6-mil gloves in orange (1ON) and green (1GN), are for heavy-duty use. The texture delivers the best grip you’ll find anywhere for working with tools and machinery.

Follow the light (or medium)

Does everybody need heavy-duty gloves? Definitely not. Lighter-weight gloves are an important option to have.

Nitrile much greater puncture resistance than latex, so one can be confident that hands are protected. Made of the same premium nitrile as our heavier gloves, they provide a dependable barrier against cleaning solutions, paint, and a wide variety of common and specialty chemicals.
