Grade I Nitrile Examination Gloves are made of Nitrile Butadiene Rubber. The Grade I gloves are thinner than Grade II and are meant for non-surgical situations. Nitrile gloves are latex-free and are extra strong despite being thin and quite sensitive to touch. Nitrile has a higher puncture resistance than any other glove material. These gloves are suitable for general use because they offer greater protection and are chemical resistant. Nitrile gloves are soft and comfortable to wear and they offer the best fit of the various glove types for the wearer. Nitrile gloves can be used safely for both incidental and extended contact.
