Great for general hand protection, vinyl gloves are a household and training staple!


Looking for general purpose medical and/or training use gloves? Surecare offers quality soft, supple beaded-cuff examination gloves for single use in non-sterile environments.

Sold in a dispenser-ready box that holds 100 gloves, they are also available by the case. The case contains 1,000 gloves packaged as 10 boxes. 

100% latex and powder-free exam gloves comply with US ASTM standards.  That means you can use them to refill your OSHA required first aid kits!
The smooth finish gloves, made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), are manufactured with sensitive individuals in mind as they contain no protein. Why are protein and powder free gloves recommended for sensitive persons? This answer from the CDC:
      Proteins responsible for latex allergies are attached to glove powder. When powdered gloves are worn, more latex protein reaches the skin. Also, when gloves are put on or removed, particles of latex protein powder become aerosolized and can be inhaled, contacting mucous membranes. As a result, allergic health care personnel and patients can experience symptoms related to cutaneous, respiratory, and conjunctival exposure. Health care personnel can become sensitized to latex proteins after repeated exposure. Work areas where only powder-free, low-allergen (i.e. reduced-protein) gloves are used show low or undetectable amounts of allergy-causing proteins.

Whether teaching a CPR/AED and First Aid class, coloring your hair, or working in food preparation, vinyl gloves work well for general hand protection. Shop our store and stock up today!
