Katermaster explains what to consider when selecting disposable gloves

There are various aspects to consider when choosing an appropriate food service glove. Katermaster outlines a few things to think about when making your decision.

Food Safety / Barrier Protection

The main purpose of a food service glove is to provide effective barrier protection when handling food. Some things to consider are the glove’s tensile strength, elongation/elasticity, and the acceptable quality level (AQL) for pinholes in the glove (the lower the AQL the better).

The NitraOne outperforms a standard vinyl glove on all 3 aspects, and it is also HACCP certified.

Application / Compliance

Is the glove you are using fit for purpose? If you are using a glove for general food service and handling, the glove will need to be changed every 30-60 minutes or whenever you change tasks, so a disposable glove is appropriate. You also want good compliance and performance from your staff, so it is important that the glove is comfortable and unrestrictive, and does not in any way discourage your staff from wearing it.

The NitraOne is the lightest that a nitrile glove has ever been. This makes it extremely soft and comfortable to wear. It is form-fitting and flexible, almost like a second skin, reducing hand fatigue. It is highly sensitive and tactile, allowing your staff to perform tasks with precision and ease. The NitraOne is also protein free, powder free, plasticizer free, with excellent resistance to oil and grease.

Cost Competitiveness

It is also important, being a disposable product, that your glove choice is economical.

With continued experimentation in nitrile formulation, the gap in price between nitrile and vinyl gloves is closing rapidly, allowing NitraOne to be cost competitive with your standard vinyl glove. NitraOne also helps to reduce cost in use. The superior quality helps reduce the wastage that you may currently experience with tearing and puncturing of a lesser quality glove. The NitraOne is also packaged efficiently with 300 gloves per inner box - reducing order frequency, packaging waste, and freight, and optimising storage space.
