Protexis Neoprene Surgical Gloves

Protexis Neoprene Surgical Gloves are an alternative when natural rubber latex surgical gloves are not an option. They are designed to be softer and thinner than previous Cardinal Health Neoprene Surgical Gloves, while maintaining physical property performance.

A unique synthetic!

With advances in manufacturing and coating technologies, powder is no longer required as a donning lubricant. Powderfree surgical gloves provide the protection and performance needed without the irritant effects of powder.
