Powdered latex glove fact and beginning:
Powdered latex gloves have been present since the beginning of the glove industry and have gone through extensive developments in reducing their weight to the standard premium 5-gram gloves that we know today. This development has not been an easy one. In the year 1995 to the early 2000’s powdered latex gloves used to be manufactured in 7 grams size Medium weight. The journey of 7grams size Medium weight to the 5grams low weight today has killed manufacturers a many. It has not been an easy one because I have been a witness to it. The struggle to adapt to the changing market needs to be competitive, low weight and low cost gloves eventually brought out the best in glove quality – the texture and feel of the gloves. The overall glove quality improved -from its aesthetic feel to its practical usage at a lower cost and the powdered latex gloves came out a winner.
The result- There was no match to the powdered latex gloves.
Also, the corn starch powdering makes the glove food-grade friendly. It is very versatile and will not harm if ingested.

How to Store the powdered latex gloves?
Latex gloves must be stored away from sunlight in a cool dry place. Proper storage ensures the shelf life of the gloves is prolonged for 3 to 5 years. Direct exposure to sunlight, heat or moisture can lead to discoloration in the gloves and degradation of physical strength properties hence proper storage is crucial in maintaining the good shelf life of the gloves.
Examination latex gloves are not sterilized by special procedures of gamma radiation or Ethylene oxide treatment before use. The gloves, therefore, are not suitable for surgical uses.
