Plasticzer (PVC gloves)
Polyvinyl chloride, better known as PVC, is a thermoplastic polymer that is used to coat the outside of gloves in order to provide protection from chemicals, punctures, cuts and abrasion. This variety of protective gloves are used in a number of job fields to protect from various potential hazards. The types of PVC gloves include safety gloves, medical gloves, lab gloves and industrial gloves.
PVC safety gloves are worn by warehouse workers, farmers, agriculturists, construction workers and commercial fisherman to protect their hands from the cold weather, possible puncture wounds and abrasions. This type of PVC gloves are foam lined, single dipped and are cinched at the wrist, for extra insulation against the elements. These gloves are distinguishable in that they also have a liquid resistant coating to keep them flexible when used in sub-zero temperatures.
Medical gloves are another variety of gloves that may be PVC coated. The PVC coating provides extra protection from blood-borne pathogens and other bodily fluids, due to its intense strength and puncture resistance. They are also latex-free, making them perfect for people with sensitive skin. What distinguishes this kind of PVC gloves from the others is that they are ultra-thin, providing fingertip sensitivity, for working with needles and other fine instruments.
