Latex Palm-Coated Gloves

Latex is used as a barrier material for gloves or glove coatings, and it is often just assumed to be another name for rubber. That is not the case however, because the process by which latex is created is markedly different than that of natural rubber. The key to latex is the fact that it can be derived from natural or synthetic sources, and is the product of a stable dispersion of tiny particles over liquid, which gave rise to the word itself as a means to distinguish it from its predecessor. Many plants, in addition to the Hevea Brasiliensis tree contain the same kind of milky sap with similar properties, mainly the way they coagulate upon exposure to air. In fact, more than 12,000 plant species yield such substances, although few are suitable for commercial use. Synthetic latex is made with monomers that are emulsified with other materials. Latex has very high elasticity and outstanding grip compared to other glove materials, and withstands extreme temperature and tear resistance.
