The process of producing latex gloves is not complicated. It can be said that it is very interesting. Starting from the collection of natural raw materials, it has gone through a series of extraordinary processes, including the following 3 most important stages:
This process starts with rubber trees that are mainly grown in Southeast Asian countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia. Farmers use a method called "extraction" to extract milky white latex from mature trees. This is usually done in the early morning. Then, the farmers will boil the milky white latex to make it more concentrated, which makes its consistency similar to syrup. Rubber trees can generally be harvested for 5 years.
After the farmers collect the latex, it will be sent to the factory for production. This stage includes several steps: preparing latex, cleaning hand molds, latex dipping, vulcanized rubber, glove extraction, cuff curling, powdering, chlorinated or polymer coated gloves, and removing gloves.
Quality control stage:
In order to ensure the quality of the gloves, the manufacturer will conduct tests. The method for testing gloves comes from the standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Generally, the method of pinhole penetration is used to test: first fill the glove with one liter of water, and then tie the mouth of the glove together to check for leakage.
There is also an AQL standard, to the effect that a batch of gloves is designated for testing. If one of the batches of gloves does not meet the standard, then the entire batch of gloves is judged to be unqualified. The results of these tests determine whether the grade of the glove is industrial or medical.
At present, the gloves produced by KIEYYUEL factory have included civilian and medical grades, and customers are welcome to consult.
Once the gloves pass the test, a supply chain will be formed from production to packaging and transportation, and large quantities will be supplied to countries or regions with more severe epidemics overseas. As the overseas epidemic continues to heat up, at present, disposable gloves have become in short supply. KIEYYUEL products have been exported to more than 70 countries and regions and have more than 10 international logistics stations to provide assistance for global epidemic prevention.
