Superior dexterity, comfort, and fit are the standout traits of latex gloves. They offer the highest elasticity, resilience, flexibility, and tactile sensitivity. However, it is important to note that aside from latex allergies, potential reactions range from skin irritation to anaphylaxis, a possibly life-threatening condition. Therefore, more organizations are opting for nitrile to avoid this risk. A number of states have banned its use in food contact. Washing gloves in a chlorinated solution during manufacturing can reduce latex proteins. They are manufactured in industrial and exam grades.
