Vinyl is a synthetic, non-biodegradable, protein-free material made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and plasticizers. Since vinyl gloves are synthetic and non-biodegradable, they have a longer shelf-life than latex gloves, which often start to break down over time.
The drawbacks of vinyl are it offers little protection from chemicals and micro-organisms, but makes these gloves perfect for handling non-hazardous materials and chemicals. Vinyl is also not very form fitting compared to latex or nitrile, giving the wearer limited dexterity and a higher chance that the glove will catch and tear. These are best used for food service and other applications where product protection is necessary but doesn’t require much dexterity or tactile precision. While they may be less durable, they are a less expensive option.
