Premium protection and comfortable wear
Nitrile gloves are good all-around medical gloves. They are recommended for a wide range of uses, including chemotherapy, patient care, handling bodily fluids, and cleaning. Nitrile gloves are a safe choice in situations with a high risk of infection or cross-contamination, as Nitrile is a strong material that still allows for fine tactile sensitivity.
Excellent touch sensitivity and grip
Latex gloves are a good choice for medical and protective use. The gloves fit like a second skin and allow free movement of fingers with a high level of touch sensitivity and good grip. Latex gloves are particularly suited for patient care, also when cross-contamination is a concern.
The economical alternative
Vinyl gloves are an economical alternative to latex and nitrile gloves. Smooth vinyl gloves are a good choice for personal hygiene tasks such as bed bathing and applying skin care because the smooth surface of a vinyl glove feels more gentle and comfortable on the skin. Vinyl gloves are also easy to don and doff while being comfortable to wear due to a high level of stretch and flexibility in the material.
Active protection against infections
The first glove in the world to offer high levels of antimicrobial protection while being non-leaching, ABENA Antimicrobial Gloves are setting the standard for the global healthcare and infection prevention industry.
Each year, ABENA supplies more than 4 billion gloves to European markets. The majority of these gloves are used in the healthcare sector.
