Kimberly-Clark Professional introduces new nitrile gloves


The new gloves are ideal for research and production facilities, life sciences and non-sterile drug manufacturing applications

For improved comfort for extended use and high tactile sensitivity without compromising worker safety, Kimberly-Clark Professional has introduced Kimtech Opal Nitrile Gloves.

The powder-free gloves are manufactured without vulcanisation accelerators 1 or added sulphur and donot contain natural rubber latex - reducing the risk of Type I and Type IV glove-associated skin reactions as well as protecting the application. The gloves also feature a patented technology to protect the skin, known as Low Derma Technology*.

  • Ideal for research and production facilities, life sciences and non-sterile drug manufacturing applications, these innovative gloves:
  • Feature a thin nitrile polymer and tip thickness of just 0.07 mm to deliver excellent tensile strength while being able to withstand rigorous process use
  • Are soft, comfortable and easy to don, making them suitable for extended use
  • Have beaded cuffs and textured fingertips to enable excellent handling of wet and dry materials

Precision-manufactured to reduce contamination risk and ensure high levels of regulatory compliance, the ambidextrous gloves have been extensively tested under stringent conditions. Certifications include:

  • PPE Cat III, according to EU Regulation 2016/425
  • EN ISO 374-1 Type B (KPT), against chemical splashes
  • EN ISO 374-5, against microorganism and virus penetration
