Nitrile gloves alone have a lower coefficient of friction, making them easier to put on and remove.  However, during the disposable glove manufacturing process, finishes are applied, allowing glove users to wear and remove with ease, creating a seamless experience as they change gloves.  When the finish is applied to nitrile gloves it provides the following features and benefits:

  • Powder makes gloves easier to pull on by absorbing excess moisture on the hands, but most powdered gloves are no longer available because of concerns about contamination of wounds or damage to paint or varnish jobs.
  • Polymer coating, with a slicker finish, makes the gloves easier to slip onto the hands.
  • Chlorination reduces the tackiness of the material and makes it softer.
