Nitrile coated, neoprene rubber surgical gloves

Sterile, powder-free1 nitrile coated, neoprene rubber surgical gloves are manufactured with zinc oxide as an alternative to chemical accelerators that have been known to cause skin sensitivities.2

Product Description

Surgical gloves are traditionally manufactured using chemical accelerators to help stabilize the raw material during the curing process in order to form an elastic surgical glove film. The chemical accelerators commonly used during traditional manufacturing of surgical gloves are DPG, MBTs, Thiurams, and Carbamates.2

Cardinal Health™ Protexis® Neoprene Essential Surgical Gloves use a specific formulation of zinc oxide during the curing process as an alternative to the four classes of chemical accelerators that are known to lead to type IV allergies.2

  • Smooth finish for tactile sensitivity
  • Nitrile coating for strength, protection and easy donnability
  • Interlocking, beaded cuff design helps to prevent roll-down
  • Proprietary hand mold with an independent thumb design allows for an anatomical fit and natural movement
  • Thickness scale: Thin3
