Glove Considerations for Cleanrooms

Posted by

Whether your employees are manufacturing pharmaceutical products, food, or conducting scientific research with sensitive materials, proper cleanroom supplies are imperative to the process. Gloves, in particular, are an integral part of the manufacturing process to ensure a clean final product. This quick article highlights four important factors to take into consideration when choosing gloves for your manufacturing application.

Performance and Functionality

Your employees’ gloves should be lightweight, durable, and comfortable. If dexterity is important, gloves with textured fingertips are a must. Likewise, to ensure secure, complete coverage between hands and arms, gloves should have tapered, bearded cuffs so that they may easily be pulled over the sleeves of employees’ coveralls.

ISO Compliance

Depending on your manufacturing setting and process, there are likely to be several governing directives related to personal protective equipment. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has specific standards, such as  ISO 9001 and ISO 14644-1, that should be considered when searching for the right gloves to complement your manufacturing procedures.

Health and Safety

When it comes to your manufacturing methods, the health and safety of your employees should be paramount. After all, without them, your operation would come to a screeching halt. Your clean room supplies, especially gloves, should be free of harmful chemicals and toxins and composed out of materials that don’t allow for irritation or allergic reactions.

Contamination Control

To ensure the highest standards of clean manufacturing techniques, the gloves you choose should be free of residues, odors, and powders. Depending on your desired manufacturing application, it’s also important to consider the sterility of the gloves to reduce the potential of cross-contamination.
