Nitrile gloves offer better tactile sensitivity comfort dexterity and puncture resistance than both rubber and vinyl. These powder-free gloves are made stronger through a manufacturing process called fusion bonding. Fusion bonding integrates synthetic polymers into the material to create a multi-layered glove for enhanced protection. Gloves measure 4.4 mil (.0044") thick in the palm 4.7 mil (.0047) thick in the fingers and 9.5" in length.
