Disposable gloves protect hands and block the transmission of bacteria between the wearer and the items being handled. They are used in maintenance, laundry, healthcare, food service and food processing, and many other industries. Typically they are referred to as rubber gloves, nitrile gloves, or latex gloves. Products differ by palm thickness, material, specific application, glove length, cuff style and other application considerations.
