Hi,

 

I'm wondering if any of you is facing similar issues. We are getting information from our suppliers that it is more and more difficult to get food grade nitrile gloves (we use blue ones). 

 

Latex is definitely out of question but, also about vinyl gloves i have read some cons. 

 

Anyone having a good recommendation for alternatives of nitrile gloves?

 

Thanks a lot!

We have been using a hybrid synthetic of nitrile and vinyl. Very durable and cheaper than full nitrile.

Butyl and neoprene gloves are the best alternatives.

Latex and nitryl gloves are used extensively in health care, and its single use nature created a shortage in the product but we have not experienced any shortage so far. We order gloves from Al Bayadar
