Latex gloves normally fit closely and offer an extremely good sense of touch. They are very flexible and therefore also tearresistant. For aseptic areas some items are offered in a sterile version, in pairs and hand specific (= left/right). For cleanroom applications a minimum length of 11"– 12" should be used, because the gloves then cover the knitted cuffs of the cleanroom garments. It is also important to have plastic packaging suitable for cleanrooms – in particular for the sterile versions. Using a paper packing for gloves, as in those used for medical applications, brings a higher risk of contamination purely from opening the paper packing.
