These gloves are designed with beaded tops to improve resistance to tears and to protect the user from exposure to chemicals and other dangerous substances. Its natural latex base also means resilience and comfort are virtually guaranteed.

Moreover, many of the gloves are medical grade quality. They are designed to provide the best possible protection while maintaining tactile sensitivity for delicate procedures. The gloves also have tapered fingertips. Tough, comfortable and reliable, you won’t find a better glove on the market.

MicroFlex also offers a pair of black gloves formulated without latex, for customers who have harsh latex allergies. These gloves go above and beyond both FDA and ISO 9000 standards.
