Blue Disposable Gloves
The range of colored glove options we see on the market now is a relatively new development in personal protective equipment (PPE). Historically, latex gloves were off-white, nitrile gloves were blue and other options like vinyl gloves and TPE gloves were clear. Today, there are many color options available. These colors have taken on new meanings that allow users to coordinate and complete jobs in style while staying protected.
Uses for Blue Disposable Gloves
The color blue used to indicate a latex-free glove option for users. As latex has been largely phased out of use due to the prevalence of allergies, this color has taken on new meanings.
Blue gloves are still the preferred option for medical professionals for a number of reasons. Blue medical gloves generally have a lighter blue color that allows users to see dirty spots or contamination and any tears that may occur. The blue color is also soothing and non-threatening to patients who may be intimidated or anxious.
In the medical field and beyond, the practice of layering darker gloves under lighter-colored gloves allows users to easily identify tears that could expose them to hazardous materials. Blue gloves are a great option for a top layer over black or other dark-colored gloves for double-gloving.
Across other applications, blue gloves can be used to indicate specific uses or glove features. This can help keep glove use standardized and prevent cross-contamination. Blue gloves can also be used to coordinate with scrubs and uniforms.
