Latex offers the perfect combination of strength, elasticity, slip resistance and comfort. Because of their significant thickness and durability, latex exam gloves perform well in high-risk, heavy-duty situations. They are supple and fit comfortably like a second skin. However, latex exam gloves are made from natural latex rubber, a protein-based compound known to cause allergic reactions and irritations in some people.
Note: Latex deteriorates over time and especially quickly if not stored properly. Keep latex gloves in a cool, dark location such as in a cabinet under the counter near the floor. We recommend you only keep a 6 month supply of latex gloves on hand to minimize your risk of deterioration.
