Nitrile is the most cost-effective, versatile glove for general lab and industrial applications. While not as elastic as latex, fit and dexterity are continuously improving along with superb resistance to petroleum based oils and fuels. Also provides excellent resistance to puncture, and is easier to spot tears prior to handling dangerous materials. Also tolerates higher temps than latex and prevents latex induced allergies.View our Best-Selling Nitrile Gloves

Latex is the ideal choice for medical or precision applications that require a high level of form-fitting, tactile sensitivity, and effective protection against bloodborne pathogens. If you have concerns about allergies or need protection against harsh chemicals, consider nitrile gloves as an alternative.View our Best-Selling Latex Gloves
Latex gloves are a smart choice due to their form-fitting characteristics, elasticity, and effective protection for various tasks.
Neoprene gloves offer the same rigorous fit and dexterity as latex for highly precise applications, including medical procedures, but with reduced allergy risks. They also withstand many acids, peroxides, toxic chemicals, and corrosive materials. However, neoprene does not hold up well against certain aromatic hydrocarbons and comes at a higher cost compared to nitrile and latex.View our Best-Selling Neoprene Gloves
