The Protexis Latex hydrogel surgical glove is a sterile latex, powder-free surgical glove with hydrogel coating designed to make the glove easy to don and easy to wear. hydrogel, also known as acrylic hydrogel polymer, is a hydrophilic coating chemically bonded to the interior of the glove, which enhances donning lubricity. The gloves are made with low-protein latex and are a translucent yellow color, which offers contrast to a colored under-glove when double-gloving. An interlocking, beaded cuff design helps reduce roll-down.
