Ambi-dex 4-mil Black Nitrile milking gloves have a matte-type texture for improved gripping qualities and is lightly powdered for comfort. Thin strong Nitrile reduces stress on the muscles of the hands and acts like a support stocking stimulating but not tiring the hands the longer the glove is worn. Nitrile is more abrasion and puncture-resistant than vinyl or latex but it has the advantage of disintegrating immediately if a puncture does occur alerting the operator that the glove must be replaced.
The "Once Under" method advocated by veterinarians includes a vigorous circular rub of each teat after pre-dipping which can be hard on bare hands. Nitrile gloves protect hands reduce fatigue and help to prevent cracked dry skin. Black Ambi-dex gloves are worn once then thrown away. Gloves fit right or left hands and are powder free.
