When cleaning, we are in contact with strong chemicals, even unknowingly. These are effective in cleaning, but can be harmful to our skin and nails. Regular contact of the skin with strong washing agents may cause it to dry and crack. Nails may also be weakened — when exposed to detergents, nails become overdried or even stained, and nail polish chips. To meet our customers’ needs, we have created a range of cleaning gloves to protect their hands and nails.

Which cleaning gloves to choose?
People who deal with cleaning are not only exposed to viruses and bacteria, but can also have problems caused by household chemicals. To protect yourself from this hazard, wear appropriate gloves suitable for the working conditions in this industry. When choosing protective gloves, it is important to note their size and thickness, but also the high standards that our products meet See what products are available in our range.
IDEAL GLOVES FOR THE CLEANING SECTOR SHOULD HAVE FOUR KEY FEATURES:
comfort at work in wet and greasy conditions,
easy donning on wet hands,
the highest strength and barrier.
In the medical industry, the raw material used to make the gloves is particularly important, as many procedures require instruments that can mechanically damage the material. There are several types of raw materials used to manufacture gloves:
- Latex gloves:
The most popular medical gloves are made of natural rubber. This durable and flexible material provides excellent protection against blood-borne pathogens and some hazardous chemicals. According to many users, these gloves are more comfortable than those made of nitrile or vinyl. Currently, 90% of the global latex production is in Asia. They are manufactured in a variety of colours to suit the needs and likes of the staff, and the style of the place where they are used.
Latex gloves provide:
- flexibility and softness,
- strength and comfortable use,
- excellent touch sensitivity, gloves feel like a “second skin”.
The latex from which gloves are made is a natural raw material, but still carries the risk of type I allergy.
- Nitrile gloves:
Nitrile, also known as acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), is a material made of organic chemical compounds. The production process of this raw material was modified so that it can compete with natural rubber. Nitrile gloves are an ideal alternative to gloves made of natural rubber.
- do not contain latex proteins – they are safe for persons allergic to latex,
- their content of chemical vulcanisation accelerators is limited to a minimum,
- have good barrier properties for chemicals.
Minimised content of chemical accelerators significantly reduces the risk of type IV allergy.
- Vinyl gloves:
These very durable medical gloves are made from plasticised polyvinyl chloride, the popular PVC. Vinyl provides good protection against chemicals, as well as against contamination with bodily fluids (including blood). Vinyl belongs to the group of PVC materials. Thanks to its properties, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) has various applications in different industries. Vinyl gloves are skin-friendly for users prone to type I and IV allergies
- Plastic gloves:
Gloves made of polyethylene provide a basic protection during low-risk work. They are a temporary barrier rather than effective protection means. Most of these gloves are approved for contact with food (PZH certification).
