Protexis® PI Blue with Neu-Thera® Surgical Gloves are a synthetic solution that can be worn as a foundational layer when double-gloving. The blue color alerts wearers to breaches in the outer glove1 and the Neu-Thera® Emollient Coating offers donnability as well as moisturizes and soothes hands during glove wear.2
- Synthetic polyisoprene (PI) – not made from natural rubber latex
- Distinct blue color aids in alerting wearers to perforations in the outer glove1
- Neu-Thera® Emollient Coating aids in wet and dry donning, and helps promote skin moisturization2
- Proprietary hand mold with an independent thumb design allows for an anatomical fit and natural movement in the fingers, thumb and palm
- Featuring an interlocking, beaded cuff design that helps to reduce roll-down
