What is Chloroprene?

Chloroprene, a natural rubber latex like synthetic material which provides the strength, comfort and sensation like Latex and has ability of expansion and contraction like Nitrile. The Chloroprene glove is one of the most comfortable, easy to use and most flexible glove so far. Chloroprene glove is the most important medical product which will give you the required comfort and durability. This is miracle of science and art, designed for the best experience and engineered for best performance ever.

Following are some of the most valuable features of Chloroprene, also known as Neoprene (Polychloroprene)

  • Tried and tested Durability in all situations
  • Easy to use, comfortable and expandable for all sizes
  • Great softness experience for increased comfort

Comfort and Fit

Chloroprene is the best glove for the providing the comfort and fit needed. These are designed keeping in view the use of disposable gloves, improved expansion and very excellent fit so that you put on the gloves, be relaxed & comfortable to work. Chloroprene is far more better than gloves made from Natural Rubber or Nitrile. Its chemical qualities allow the best fit because of the Lower modulus, which is the most important aspect to measure the quality, comfort and performance. The Lower modulus allows coziness and aptness, the softer it is the more elastic the glove hence improving the performance and reducing the hand tiredness.

Strength and Durability

Gloves need to be soft and comfortable yet these should be strong and durable because their most important purpose is safety. Chloroprene are tested under extreme conditions and these passed all test tremendously. Glove’s strength is measured by two test, first elongation and second Tensile strength. Tensile strength measure the ability of the glove to bear force, its unit is pounds per square inch, a glove is tested till its breaking point. The elongation test measures the ability of a glove to stretch in percentage. Chloroprene gloves was far more better than Nitrile but it was marginally lower than Natural Rubber which is also a positive point because it have more strength than Natural Rubber.

Barrier Resistance

Strength of Glove come with additional needed performance character, the barrier resistance. A good glove should provide comfort, strength and barrier resistance and again chloroprene has won in this area from Natural Rubber and Nitrile Gloves. Chloroprene gloves are end product of very extensive R&D due to which these gloves provide protection from toxic chemicals, abrasive and corrosive substances, all kind of infections and harmful materials. Chloroprene gloves are passed by third part testing laboratories to EN and ASTM standards. Chloroprene gloves are far more better in flexibility, strength, safety and in overall performance than both Natural Rubber and Nitrile, these are the best choice for those who value safety, comfort and good quality material.
