Powder-Free Surgical Gloves

The total absence of powder makes Elastyplus ideal for use in ophthalmology, neonatal, obstetrics/gynecology, urology, respiratory therapy and laboratory/pharmacy or any area where powder is a concern. This product is also free of vulcanizing chemicals commonly associated with Type IV allergic reactions. The use of a bisque-finish glove former during manufacturing creates a subtle texture surface for a more secure grip. Hydrophobic material repels fluids to prevent hydration and eliminate glove swelling and sagging.
