Adam Karapetyan, founder of Wholesale Nitrile Gloves, is serious about combatting COVID-19. He uses his company to supply people with nitrile gloves so that they can stay safer during the pandemic. The gloves, which can decrease the transmission of the virus, are manufactured by his company and satisfy a growing need in America’s war against the virus.
Long before COVID-19 dominated the world, Nitrile was in use. The material comes from rubber trees and is processed in such a way that it becomes a uniquely strong chemical. For the past fifteen years, medical professionals, food workers, tattoo artists and even mechanics have used nitrile gloves to protect their hands and health.
Research has backed up their effectiveness through several studies. In one, nitrile beat vinyl and tied with latex. The results were significant: vinyl gloves failed 12-61% of the time while the results were better for latex (0-4%) and nitrile (1-3%).
Manufacturers have been making nitrile gloves for years and know that they are popular for good reason. Nitrile gloves resist chemicals well. They are also extremely soft and very clean. Their exceptional properties mean they can also be used in the electronics industry. They resist punctures. Lastly, they are free of latex, which is good news for allergy sufferers.
All products evolve over time, and this has been the case for nitril gloves, resulting in even more advantages and media attention. Their price is similar to that of latex gloves, and they are comfortable even when worn for long periods of time. Objects are easily picked up, and perhaps best of all, because heat is not trapped against the skin, the wearer’s hands do not sweat.
“The gloves have proven time and time again to be superior to those made by other materials. However, the pandemic and the demand for them have inevitably led to their price increasing and availability decreasing,” Adam states. With relatively few domestic manufacturers of the gloves yet so many advantages, Adam saw an opportunity. He created his company, Wholesale Nitrile Gloves, to fill the demand.
“Everyone knows these days that personal protective equipment or PPP is a reality in everyone’s lives. After researching nitrile gloves and discovering they are a high-quality alternative to latex, I worked to acquire and distribute high-quality personal protective equipment. My sales then went through the roof. Now I use my multi-state distribution network to help my customers get gloves.”
In past year, Adam has used his business to provide personal protective wear that is of a high quality and reasonably priced.
“Each day, I help protect lives. By wearing nitrile gloves, people can be safer at work and at home. While gloves are just one defense and not the only defense, they are an important part of combatting the pandemic.”
