Microflex Diamond Grip Disposable Latex Gloves, Provides Dependable Protection & Reliable Grip, For Mechanics, Industrial Workers, Research and Healthcare Professionals, Powder Free, X-Large, Box/100
The Microflex Diamond Grip disposable, chlorinated, powder-free, standard length latex glove has textured fingers and is thicker at the fingertips. It has a palm thickness of 6.3 mils and a finger thickness of 7.9 mils, and is 9.6″ long from the tip of the middle finger to the edge of the beaded wrist cuff, which is 5.1 mils thick. It is suitable for automotive, emergency medical services, healthcare, industrial safety, laboratory, and law enforcement applications. Latex provides better elasticity than nitrile, chloroprene, or vinyl, and better puncture resistance than vinyl. The glove is textured along the length of the fingers for improved grip compared to a glove with textured fingertips. It has been washed in a diluted chlorine-based solution to help reduce tackiness, providing lower surface friction than a non-chlorinated glove and allowing quick donning in wet environments. This powder-free glove leaves no residue, helping to reduce the likelihood of spreading latex allergens and bacteria compared to a powdered glove. The color of this ambidextrous glove is off-white. Tensile strength, measured in megapascals (MPa), is the amount of force required to rip a glove; the higher the number, the stronger the glove material. This glove has a tensile strength of 27 MPa before aging and 23 MPa after aging. Elongation measures how much a glove can be stretched before it breaks. It is expressed as a percent of the original length of the glove at the moment of breakage, and the higher the percent, the more the glove can stretch. This glove has an elongation of 750% before aging and 600% after aging. Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quality specification for the defect rate in surgical and exam gloves. The FDA requires an AQL of 1.5 for surgical gloves and 2.5 for exam gloves. This glove has an AQL of 1.5, which means the defect level from a large sample of the gloves will not exceed 1.5%. Microflex examination gloves meet or exceed applicable standards imposed by ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), and the FDA.
