Nitrile, latex, rubber, vinyl or plastic gloves are most commonly used in medical settings or laboratories. They’re usually form-fitting to allow for movability, but offer protection from biohazards, chemicals, solvents, and other harmful substances. However, because the material is so thin and flexible, these gloves offer no puncture or heat resistance. They’re not ideal when using sharp tools or flames, or when working with abrasive surfaces. Some gloves available in bulk packages.
