Safely Buy Nitrile Gloves ( Gloves - non Rx ) from Canada Prescriptions Plus.


Nitrile gloves are non-latex medical examination gloves used to protect your hands from coming into contact with potentially dangerous substances.

Nitrile is a natural rubber that offers protection against a wide range of chemicals and bacteria. As an alternative to latex gloves, Nitrile exam gloves also offer an effective choice for those with latex allergies. These gloves are also thinner than latex examination gloves but have proven to show greater resistance to puncture.

How do I know if my nitrile gloves fit right?

Nitrile examination gloves should not be too loose or overstretched. If the gloves are too small, the material will be put under stress and can become less protective. Gloves that are too large can make it hard to achieve optimal dexterity and could be more easily damaged.

How do you avoid contamination when removing nitrile gloves?

When you remove your gloves, use your gloved hand to remove the other glove and then peel away the remaining glove using the inside of the cuff. Dispose of the gloves and thoroughly wash your hands.
