General information

Sterile, disposable, anatomically-shaped medical gloves with the thumb positioned towards the palmer surface of the index finger, as opposed to laying flat; intended for use in surgery or any sterile medical procedure.



One pair of slightly-powdered gloves: 1 right-handed, 1 left-handed.




Powder: maize starch

Physical properties:





Minimum force at break for surgical gloves: before accelerated ageing 10.5N, after accelerated ageing 7.5N.


Straight-sleeved with reinforced hem (rolled or ending in a reinforced band).


Moulded manufacture.


Suppleness: Closely fits the morphology of the hand, minimally impairing the wearer’s sense of touch. The shape of the glove accurately accommodates the anatomy of the hand; the thumb is offset from the palm and set forward of the index finger.

Slightly powdered:

The interior surfaces of the gloves must be finely coated with powder for ease of wearing.


Low-residual protein level (EN 455-3)


Recommended wall thickness:


- Finger area: 0.38mm


- Centre palm area: 0.24-0.30mm/25mm, 0.26mm from cuff end
