Nitrile gloves are preferred over latex because of their chemical resistance, their tendency to visibly rip when punctured, and to prevent possible latex allergies. NItrile gloves are an excellent general use glove; good for solvents, oils, greases, and some acids and bases. Because Nitrile is latex-free, they are an ideal alternative to natural rubber latex especially for latex-allergies.
