Cleanroom Gloves: 5 Tips to Choose the Right Pair

by Frank MacDonald on September 18, 2013

Comments (0)

Every square inch of the human body has an average of 32 million bacteria on it so we take cleanroom process seriously. Today on the blog, we discuss cleanroom gloves: the definition of cleanroom processing, the importance of it and how to choose the right pair.


What are Cleanroom Gloves?

Cleanroom gloves are gloves that have been washed and packaged in a sterile environment. Cleanroom gloves are used in applications where it is critical to minimize contamination from dust and particles such as pharmaceutical, electronic assembly and automotive paint line. Superior has its own Class 100 Cleanroom Laundry, so many of the products we manufacture can be cleanroom processed at your request.


Why do People Need Cleanroom Gloves?

Buyers and consumers want to be certain that product contamination from handling, packaging and finishing processes do not harm their high-end products. We know they worry about the transfer of biohazards to medicines, medical devices and food. They are concerned with affecting finishes before and after painting, powder-coating and other surface processes. They are also concerned with the buildup of static electricity on electrical circuits and components.

In general, today there is much less concern with particulate contamination as most of the processes where particles would have an impact are now done in isolation and by machine.

The main concerns are:

  • body oils
  • bio-hazards
  • other environmental concerns that can harm products from electronics to pharmaceuticals to sealed pack foods.


How to Choose the Right Cleanroom Gloves:

Choosing the right cleanroom gloves is just like choosing gloves for any other industry. You need to consider:

  • Are there other hazards like chemical, heat or cut?
  • The fit and feel of the glove — how much dexterity you will need
  • What is your price point?
  • The level of cleanliness you need



How Superior Glove Cleanroom Processes our Gloves:

Cleanroom gloves from Superior are free from silicone, plasticizers and pigments and are manufactured in an ISO 9002 facility.

After washing, they are inspected and packed on stainless-steel tables, then heat-sealed in poly bags and double packed.


A Final Tip:

Buyers and users often focus a great deal on how the gloves will  protect the sensitive cleanroom environment from contamination by workers. Don’t forget that workers themselves may also need protection from acids, chemicals, sharp materials or other hazards in the environment. Don’t forget to consider a glove’s protective properties for the wearer.
