Same Fit and Feel as Latex
The unique polyisoprene formulation the Protexis PI Blue gloves are made from features an identical chemical structure to latex, but without the proteins that cause reactions. This gives healthcare workers an alternative to latex which provides the same fit and feel, so they don’t have to lose the benefits of latex when they lose latex.
Additionally, the gloves also feature a smooth grip as well as a thinner construction – 0.2mm at the fingers – enhancing tactile sensitivity for the wearer to improve dexterity and control.
Unique Neu-Thera Emollient Coating
Alongside their PI formulation, the Protexis PI Blue gloves also feature a unique Neu-Thera emollient coating. This coating, made from glycine, provitamin B5 and gluconolactone, makes the gloves much easier to put on and take off, improving usability.
On top of this, the coating also makes the gloves much more comfortable to wear, moisturising and soothing hands while they are worn, as well as encouraging compliance with hand-washing and surgical hand antisepsis guidelines,
The gloves are supplied powder-free, helping to reduce the chance of powder-related skin irritation occurring as well as limiting post-operative complications associated with granulomas.
