Latex gloves are also called rubber gloves. Latex is a natural material derived from rubber tree sap. Natural latex is a biosynthetic product. Due to different tree species, geology, climate and other related conditions, its composition and structure will often vary greatly. In the fresh latex without any substance, the rubber hydrocarbon only accounts for 20%-40% of the total, and the remaining small amount is non-rubber components and water. Non-rubber components include proteins, lipids, sugars and inorganic components. Some of them form a composite structure with rubber particles, and some are dissolved in whey or form non-rubber particles.

Nitrile is a kind of rubber, mainly synthesized by acrylonitrile and butadiene, and is a key material for organic synthesis and pharmaceutical intermediates.

In addition, nitrile gloves have certain antistatic properties because they are free of silicon, and have low surface chemical residues, low ion content, and small particle content. They are suitable for strict cleanroom environments.
