The Kimberly-Clark Nitrile-XTRA nitrile powder-free disposable glove is purple, allowing for differentiation from other gloves. The glove meets National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code 1999 for emergency medical gloves and is suitable for medical and laboratory examination applications. This glove has a palm thickness of 4.7 mils and a finger thickness of 5.9 mils and is 12" long from the tip of the middle finger to the edge of the beaded wrist cuff, which is 3.5 mils thick. Nitrile provides better elasticity than vinyl, better puncture resistance than latex or vinyl, better abrasion resistance than chloroprene, and reduces the likelihood of allergic reaction. The glove has textured fingertips for improved grip compared to a glove with a smooth texture. This powder-free glove leaves no residue, reducing the risk of contamination , and is ambidextrous.
