Price of Rubber Pushed Up by Cartel

The Wall Street Journal produced an interesting article about the current situation of rubber production in Southeast Asia.  The cartel that controls the majority of the worlds rubber supply are clamping down on supply to increase prices.  The increase in rubber price is the direct reason for the rising cost of latex gloves, the article estimates 60% of the cost of latex gloves comes from latex prices.  Click here to view the full article.

The rising cost of latex is just one of the major reasons to make the transition to nitrile gloves.  The Nitrile 4G Ultrathin series is a series of nitrile gloves that are made with less nitrile but is comparably just as strong as other latex or nirtile gloves.  Nitrile 4G series features the standard cuff measuring 9.5” length, and the long cuff measuring 12” in length.
