Kimberly-Clark’s new KC100 lavender nitrile Exam Gloves.
Protection You Can trust – at a More Affordable Everyday Price.
Now you can replace your vinyl exam gloves with the superior protection, performance, and comfort of nitrile. Kimberly-Clark researchers have developed a glove that’s thinner, lighter, and more economical than standard nitrile, yet retains the protective properties required for excellent performance across a wide range of healthcare tasks.
In published, in-use barrier studies, the difference in leakage percentage rates is dramatic. In a simulated use Shaker Test, standard vinyl had a leakage rate of 33%, against only 5.5% for nitrile. And in a Device Manipulation Test, standard vinyl’s leakage rate was 35.5%, versus 7.5% for nitrile.
That’s a 373% higher risk of failure with vinyl gloves than with nitrile.
