Black Nitrile’s Durability, Comfort Is a Great Fit for Food Processing

Do you work in food processing or a commercial kitchen? Are you tired of hand fatigue from disposable gloves that don’t fit as well as they should? Do you want more durability and less concern about rips and punctures?

The solution may be found in one of two gloves1st Choice 5 mil Black Nitrile (1BN) or Premium 6-mil Black Nitrile (1PBN).

When it comes to working with food at the most basic levels, from chopping ingredients to assembling meals, vinyl gloves get the job done. Avoiding cross-contamination is central to any food operation, so frequent glove changes go with the territory. Vinyl’s value-first price points make that possible.

Many end-users whose food-related work is a bit more demanding, however, prefer a 3-mil nitrile glove, like X3 Industrial Blue Nitrile (X3) or X3 Industrial Black Nitrile (BX3). They deliver better fit and comfort as well as the added strength of nitrile.

But if you’re in a food-processing facility or a commercial kitchen, gloves are likely to be worn longer and be exposed to more demanding conditions. Enter 1BN and 1PBN.

Both 1st Choice black nitrile gloves are typically associated with automotive and other industrial applications rather than with food. The 5- or 6-mil thickness is great for working with tools and machinery, and their durability is widely appreciated by the pros who choose them.

These sturdy gloves offer not only tremendous fit, feel, and comfort, but they require fewer changes over the course of a shift. They can stand up to the rigors of a production line and even do double-duty for servicing the equipment.

For day-to-day food service at the restaurant level, vinyl gloves remain the most affordable option; we recommend X3 Clear Vinyl (GPX3) for preparing and plating food.

But for food production lines, packaging facilities, and busy commercial kitchens, 1st Choice black nitrile gloves are hard to beat.
