Fine Touch Disposables supplies powder free nitrile, latex and vinyl disposable gloves. Low powder latex gloves are also available. These nitrile, latex and vinyl gloves are manufactured in factories that are regularly audited to ISO 13485, the international standard for the production of medical devices and tested by an independent laboratory to the European standard EN455, that regulates single use medical gloves distributed in the EU. They have been registered on the New Zealand Medsafe database WAND as a Class 1 medical device. These nitrile, latex and vinyl disposable gloves also comply with Commission Regulation EU 10/2011 for plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. They are sold in cartons of 1000 gloves (internal packaging of 10 dispenser boxes of 100 gloves in each).
Fine Touch also supplies lightweight, blue PE (polyethylene) gloves, with an embossed surface for a better grip. These looser fitting gloves are easy to put on and take off and best suited for situations where the wearer needs to change gloves often while performing tasks that do not require high levels of barrier protection and dexterity such as in food handling.
On the job glove barrier performance depends on the disposable glove material and the task at hand. Some considerations to think about when selecting the best disposable glove for a particular work environment are barrier protection, allergens, strength, durability, elasticity, fit, comfort and resistance to punctures and chemicals.
