What materials are disposable gloves made of? Is it degradable after disposal?

Disposable products cannot escape the torture of environmental protection, and disposable gloves are no exception. Reliability of material sources and ease of handling are the criteria for everyone to consider.
Common disposable gloves are divided into nitrile gloves, latex gloves, PVC gloves and PE gloves.
The main material of nitrile gloves Nitrile is a petroleum extract, synthesized from acrylonitrile and butadiene. Material Source Petroleum is taken from nature, and ordinary nitrile gloves have a long degradation cycle after being discarded.
GBL has recently developed a biodegradable nitrile glove, which accelerates the degradation process of nitrile gloves by promoting metabolism and enzymatic transformation, and solves the problem of long degradation cycle.
The main material of latex gloves, latex is taken from the sap of the natural rubber tree and is also non-toxic. It can be dissolved in nature very quickly after being discarded, so it is very good from the point of view of degradability.
