Disposable Latex Gloves Made To Last

Latex gloves are soft and stretchy disposable gloves made from natural latex rubber. They are a popular choice for tasks that require a soft, tactile touch and effortless dexterity. While nitrile gloves are a popular non-latex alternative, many professionals still prefer the natural feel of latex for its superior touch sensitivity.

  • Forget you're wearing them with a natural feel and remarkable touch sensitivity.
  • Try different thicknesses and cuff lengths for light and heavy-duty tasks.
  • Find a snug and comfortable fit that delivers tactile precision for delicate tasks.
  • Safe to use with certain chemicals and solvents.

How to Buy Latex Gloves

Choosing the right size and type of latex glove is the key to getting the best fit with the right level of protection. Are you looking for an especially tough and heavy-duty glove, or is touch sensitivity for delicate tasks a higher priority? Our high-quality disposable gloves are durable and puncture-resistant even when thin, so consider the task at hand and look for your perfect balance.

Consider these options when choosing your glove:

  • Medical or Industrial grade: Medical grade gloves are regulated by the FDA with strict quality testing and assurance for safety in medical exams and surgical settings. Industrial-grade gloves are suitable for most other tasks.  
  • Glove Size: Measure your hand to find your correct glove size for a snug and comfortable fit. UniSafe Gloves provide options for small, medium, large, and extra-large latex gloves.
  • Glove Thickness: UniSafe Gloves offers latex gloves ranging from light (5 mil) for tasks that demand high tactile sensitivity to heavy-duty latex gloves (15 mil) for more demanding roles.
  • Glove Texture: Gloves can have a textured surface for a firmer grip or a smooth surface for a more natural feel.
  • Cuff Length: Standard cuffs (9-9.5 inches) are for everyday tasks, and extended cuff lengths (12 inches) are better for added wrist and forearm protection in high-risk situations.
  • Powdered or Powder-Free: Powdered gloves, coated with cornstarch, facilitate easier donning but aren't suitable for medical use due to potential airborne contamination. For powder-free gloves, the manufacturing powder is removed. There are different ways to make gloves without powder. One way, called offline chlorination, is an older method but makes better gloves that are easier to wear and can handle chemicals a bit better. Our Diamondback gloves are one of the few on the market that use this method, getting a special treatment not once, but twice. Another way, called online chlorination, is faster and cheaper, but those gloves can feel tackier and might be trickier to don especially with wet hands..
  • Color: Blue gloves are more visible, so it can be easier to identify punctures or contaminants, especially in delicate tasks. White gloves are a favorite in medical and clinical settings for their clean, professional appearance, while natural-colored latex gloves leave out the added dyes for a traditional look

Latex Glove FAQs

What are Latex Gloves?

Latex rubber gloves are a type of disposable glove made from natural rubber latex. These protective hand coverings are designed for one-time-use in many kinds of light and heavy-duty tasks.

What are Latex Gloves Made of?

Latex gloves are made from natural rubber latex, a milky sap from the rubber tree. This material provides the gloves with their characteristic elasticity and soft, snug fit.

What is the Powder in Latex Gloves?

The powder on our gloves is cornstarch. This powder makes the gloves easier to don and doff, especially when hands are moist. However, due to potential aerosolization of contaminates latex powdered gloves are not for medical use.

Are Latex Gloves Food Safe?

Yes, many latex gloves are food-safe. They provide a hygienic barrier, ensuring safe food preparation. However, consider if allergies are a concern, decide if it's safer to choose a disposable glove that is not made from natural latex rubber, such as nitrile or vinyl.

Do Latex Gloves Leave Fingerprints?

These gloves can reduce the transfer of fingerprints, but they may not entirely eliminate them. They are often used in forensic and crime scene investigations to prevent contamination.

Are Latex Gloves Chemical Resistant?

Latex gloves offer varying levels of resistance to different chemicals. Refer to our chemical resistance guide for information on specific chemical resistance for our gloves.

Can You Use Latex Gloves to Dye Hair?

Hair dyes often contain chemicals like ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, and other components. Latex gloves have a "Good" resistance to hydrogen peroxide and an "Excellent" resistance to ammonia. You can use these protective gloves during hair dyeing to keep your hands free from direct contact with these chemicals. However, always check the specific chemicals in the dye and cross-reference with your specific glove's resistance for maximum safety.

Do Latex Gloves Expire?

Yes, latex disposable gloves have a shelf life. Over time, the material can degrade, reducing its effectiveness and safety. It's crucial to check the expiration date and store them in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.
