As mentioned in the previous article, the production of disposable latex gloves is basically completed after a series of processes such as washing hand molds, latex dipping, crimping and unloading. However, due to the material of the gloves, the last step is required before they can be worn. In fact, there are many ways to complete the last step, such as powdering, chlorination, polymer coating or polyurethane finishing.
As the name suggests, when using gloves, the powder can absorb the user's sweat, making it easy to take off. In the past, most of them had powdered hand molds, so the gloves produced had powders. However, with the advancement of technology, the gloves will first be applied with food-grade corn starch to reduce the user's sensitivity. But powdered gloves are not suitable for biological science and chemical processing. Therefore, KIEYYUEL took another approach.
Chlorination is a powder-free treatment method for disposable gloves. We will first clean the gloves with a chlorine solution or hypochlorite solution, and then rinse the gloves to prevent the chemical solution from reacting with the gloves. This process reduces the amount of adhesion of the gloves and also makes the gloves softer.
This process was originally developed for latex gloves. With the advancement of technology, after the advent of nitrile gloves, this process is also suitable for nitrile gloves, such as KIEYYUEL disposable nitrile gloves.
In the market, thanks to the wide application of the new process polymer coating, most of the current disposable gloves are powder-free. These coatings include several polymers: silicone, acrylic, and gel, which can make the gloves easier to wear. At present, this process is generally used for nitrile gloves and latex gloves. KIEYYUEL nitrile gloves and latex gloves have adopted this process.
Polyurethane coated inside the gloves can reduce the adhesion of the powder on the gloves and make the gloves more convenient to take off.
In short, the four major processes of "powdering, chlorination, polymer coating, and polyurethane" can make disposable gloves easier and more comfortable to wear, and can reduce protein irritation to users.
