Nytraguard® Nitrile Gloves
Nytraguard® is the Readigloves® brand name for nitrile examination gloves. Nitrile is the quickly becoming the material of choice for many healthcare workers as it has a similar performance to latex for many tasks, but is more durable and benefits from being free of any latex proteins, which can cause Type l allergy problems for some individuals.
Nytraguard® gloves are made from a synthetic polymer - acrylonitrile butadiene - that is typically stronger and more durable than traditional latex gloves.
Cyraguard® Latex Gloves
Cyraguard® is the Readigloves® brand name for latex examination gloves. Latex is the traditional material used to produce examination gloves, manufactured from natural rubber latex (NRL) extracted from rubber trees. Latex gloves offer high performance thanks to the highly elastic properties of NRL.
Vinoguard® Vinyl Gloves
Vinoguard® is the Readigloves® brand name for vinyl gloves. Vinyl is a synthetic polymer, more commonly known as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), with added plasticisers, to make the rigid polymer flexible and suitable for use as a glove.
Vinyl gloves are latex free but can still cause dermatitis in wearers, due to the chemicals they contain. Vinyl gloves are of lower performance than both nitrile and latex but do offer a low cost option for low risk tasks.
