Latex gloves from Franz Mensch:
Latex gloves are disposable gloves made of latex. Latex is a natural raw material obtained from tropical rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis). Latex is #1 when it comes to fit and stretch. No other material fits your hand as perfectly as a latex glove. Thanks to its exceptional elasticity, it follows your every movement and provides maximum tactile sensitivity. Latex gloves are food safe and suitable for working with food. Powder-free latex gloves are particularly recommended here, as no powder could contaminate the food.
Advantages of latex gloves
- excellent fit, like a second skin

Black latex gloves: the trend color
The black latex gloves Diablo are among the best-selling latex gloves at Franz Mensch. The deep black color is particularly modern and trendy in the areas of cuisine, street food, bars, restaurants, catering, cosmetics, hairdressers, piercing studios or tattoo studios.
Topic latex allergy: Which gloves are compatible?
Unfortunately, the latex proteins contained in latex gloves can cause allergies or skin irritations. At Franz Mensch, we try to keep this protein content as low as possible. Latex gloves from Franz Mensch are comparatively low in allergens. Regular tests show this. The reason: Only high-quality machines are used in production, which thoroughly wash out the proteins. This so-called chlorination (washing out the latex in chlorine liquid) lowers the protein content and thus improves tolerance. The protein content of latex gloves is therefore an important indicator for latex-sensitive users. Many latex gloves from Franz Mensch are subjected to a double chlorination process. This reduces the protein content to below 50 µg per gram of glove (measured by the modified Lowry/HPLC method). Nevertheless, latex allergy sufferers should switch to alternatives such as nitrile gloves.
When are latex gloves the right choice?
Disposable latex gloves are universally applicable. Provided latex allergies are not an issue, powder-free latex gloves can be used in all hygiene areas:
- Clinic, hospital and all other medical areas, for example the latex gloves Med Grip
- Nursing homes, homes for the elderly
- Food production, processing of all kinds of food
- Industry, precision mechanics, clean room, high-tech production
- Gastronomy, Kitchen, Hotel, Catering
- Cleaning work
Nitrile vs. latex: Which disposable gloves are better?
Due to latex allergies, there is a strong tendency towards nitrile gloves. Also, compared to latex, nitrile is more resistant to chemicals and overall more resistant to mechanical stress. Nitrile gloves are also very stretchy and fit well. New developments from Franz Mensch such as the Safe Super Stretch nitrile gloves are even more stretchable than latex.
