A new formulation for making a polyvinyl chloride (PVC, usually referred
as vinyl in glove industry) glove has been disclosed in this invention.
The resulting glove shows the following superior barrier integrity
characteristics by comparing with current vinyl gloves in the market:
Much lower in use failure rate Improved puncture strength and tensile
strength Better chemical resistance The invention provides formulations
to make compounds and methods to make such gloves. The new formulations
and procedures could be easily realized economically under common vinyl
glove production lines. Depending on the desired applications, both
powdered and powder free gloves could be produced in the same formula.
