Natural Rubber Latex (latex) and synthetic (for example Nitrile Butadiene Rubber)glove manufacturing is a long and complex operation. In developing and manufacturing protective gloves, the main objective is to create gloves that optimise barrier characteristics as well as flexibility, comfort and grip, while minimising adverse effects such as allergic reactions.

This movie shows the process of latex glove manufacture, from raw latex being harvested from the Hevea brasiliensis tree to the final product being dispatched to your distributor.
