PE (Polyethylen) gloves by Franz Mensch

PE gloves are odorless and tasteless and very inexpensive. Polyethylene (PE) is a versatile thermoplastic material that is available in various densities:

  • LDPE (soft PE) has a low density, is soft and very flexible.
  • MDPE (Medium-PE, medium density) is extremely tear-resistant and puncture resistant.
  • HDPE gloves (hard PE, high density) are very stiff and resistant to abrasion.
  • TPE (thermoplastic elastomers)  is very soft and very tolerant to hewing.
  • CPE (cast polyethylene)is very strong, tear-resistant and particularly skin-friendly.

These disposable gloves are food safe and oil and grease resistant and are therefore particularly popular in the food industry.

The advantages of PE:

  • very cheap
  • odorless and tasteless
  • environmentally friendly and easily combustible

The disadvantages of PE:

PE gloves are only suitable for low-risk areas and are only slightly resistant to chemicals.
