If you’re getting tired of the constant handwashing (and maybe even dealing with dry skin from all that soap and hot water) to protect yourself from the coronavirus, you may wonder if you could get the same protection by wearing disposable gloves. After checking the CDC guidelines and consulting two infectious-disease experts, we can confidently tell you: Don’t worry about it. The CDC does not currently recommend gloves for running errands or going to the grocery store. (Right now, it’s recommended to wear them only while caring for someone who is sick with COVID-19 or while using cleaning products.) And the experts we spoke to warned that gloves can have the unfortunate side effect of providing a false sense of security.
“People think of disposable gloves as magic bullets, and they are not. They are another source of contamination,” says Ravina Kullar, an infectious-disease specialist, epidemiologist, and spokesperson for the Infectious Diseases Society of America. “You are in essence just transporting all the bacteria and viruses you have touched from one surface to another [via your gloves] and may potentially be prone to touch your face more often.” Without gloves, she says, you’re likely going to be more aware of washing your hands or using hand sanitizer after touching a potentially contaminated surface. Aaron E. Glatt, chair of medicine at Mount Sinai South Nassau and also an IDSA spokesperson, agrees that in most cases, “you’re actually better off washing your hands,” as people wearing gloves will often touch many different surfaces, including their faces, before switching out their gloves.
The protective coveralls must first of all be sewn in a way that makes them comfortable and prevents them from interfering with the work of the person wearing it. The cut and size must allow sufficient freedom of movement. There are also numerous important details: stitching reinforcements, tight-fitting hood as well as well-fitting holes for feet, hands and the hood.
Protective coveralls were created to ensure a high level of protection during work activities. They cover or replace personal clothing and their main purpose is to protect the worker from chemical, biological, mechanical, thermal, electromagnetic and electrical hazards. Coveralls often win against other elements of protective clothing thanks to their design, which provides additional protection against uncontrolled loss of parts of clothing by workers performing particularly dangerous work.
Protective coveralls for short-duration use, often referred to as “disposable protective coveralls”, were designed to protect people, processes and products. These products protect workers against chemical compounds, asbestos, dust and fibres, chemicals used in the agriculture and heavy industry as well as paints and varnishes. They protect demanding production processes and products, e.g. in cleanrooms or in the production of pharmaceuticals, as well as foodstuffs against contamination by staff. In addition, this clothing protects against contact with concentrated organic compounds and inorganic acids and bases as well as salt solutions. Furthermore, penetration tests using blood and virus simulants have shown that the specialised material used to manufacture disposable coveralls protects the wearer from other people’s body fluids and pathogens.
Key advantages of disposable protective coveralls:
1.Very light material which does not restrict the freedom of movement
2.Guaranteed 100% cleanliness (new coveralls every time)
3.Excellent protective properties
4.Long service life
5.No washing, maintenance or repair costs
6.Low purchase costs
7.Small size and low weight (minimum place needed for storage)
8.Simple disposal process
We should also keep in mind that not all coveralls, which are manufactured in accordance with European standards, offer the same protection. Their degree of impermeability to particles and substances as well as their durability and comfort of wear can vary greatly from model to model.
Two Chinese main manufacturing base are located in Linyi City and Zhangjiagang City. 80% disposable pe glove are exported from these places.In Linyi City, there are also some manufacturers of pe film that is raw material for pe gloves.
Pe film can be used in many other industries and agriculture. Some local pe glove factories use recycled pe film to make disposable pe gloves in order to competition in the market. How to distinguish recycled pe glove? You can check its color and tensible strength. Color is dark and strength is low. That kind of pe glove is 100% used recycled pe film.
In Zhangjiagang City, there are a lot of small pe glove factories. Now, some bosses also use recycled pe film to make gloves. If you have no good friend to introduce, you will get bad quality of disposable pe gloves. In all, 80% local disposable pe glove factories are only doing foreign trade business, so their quality is better than in Linyi city.
