  • A glove is a type of garment which covers the hand of a human. Gloves have separate sheaths or openings for each finger and the thumb; if there is an opening but no covering sheath for each finger they are called "fingerless gloves". Fingerless gloves with one large opening rather than individual openings for each fingers are sometimes called gauntlets. Gloves which cover the entire hand but do not have separate finger openings or sheaths are called mittens. Mittens are warmer than gloves made of the same material because the extra air inside creates added insulation, and because fingers maintain their warmth better when they are touching.
  • The manufacturing of gloves consists of the following steps: Harvesting of Latex, Addition of preservative, Pre-Centrifugation, Centrifugation, Compounding, Dipping & Coagulation, Pre-vulcanisation leaching, Vulcanisation, Stripping, Post-vulcanisation leaching, Lubrication, Chlorination, Checking and Packaging.
  • Pre powdered gloves are manufactured from high quality Natural Rubber Latex. High quality of these gloves is ensured by in-process control which covers all aspects of manufacturing. Manufacturing and packing is done under clean and hygienic environment which ensures low Bio-burden on the gloves. In-line leaching process is used to reduce content of soluble proteins. Thiurams are avoided for lower allergic potential. These gloves are lightly powdered with USP grade absorbable corn starch. 
  • Varieties of Surgical Gloves are designed specially for different type of applications. For orthopedic surgeries these Surgical Gloves are designed thicker for increased durability and are ideal for trauma surgery or in any vigorous procedure, where there is risk of barriers breach. Microsurgery needs very thinner Surgical Gloves with remarkable durability for performing operations safely and comfortably, which do the suppliers provide.
  • American Capital Strategies Ltd. (Nasdaq: ACAS) announced that it has invested $65 million in BarrierSafe Solutions International, which now owns Microflex Corporation and FoodHandler Inc., two leading companies in the development and marketing of disposable gloves and related products in a variety of end use markets. 
  • The US market for disposable latex examination gloves will continue to grow in the next six years according to Frost & Sullivan. It expects health care providers to shift from powdered to powder-free, and to synthetic and new polymer gloves. The market will grow to about $1200 million by 2006, with 25,500m units distributed, from $1000 million and 20,300m units in 1999. Of the 1999 figure, $854 million was for natural rubber latex examination gloves with current synthetics drawing about $160 million. 
  • Glove usage increased from 1.4 billion in 1988 to 8.3 billion in 1993 . This has also created further increase in the volume of medical gloves imported to US from 3.9 billion pieces in 1989 to 20.8 billion pieces and 32.69 billion pieces in 1996 and 2003 respectively . In US, the percentage of surgical gloves imported in 2003 was 11.3% of the total glove imported.
