  • Detail

The H1N1 flu epidemic has made latex gloves popular, and the price of rubber latex has risen

since last winter, the sales momentum of latex gloves, which used to be calm, has suddenly increased. According to the analysis of international authorities in the rubber industry, this is related to the global spread of influenza A (H1N1)

so far, thousands of people have died of influenza A (HIN1) in the world. Generally, it is similar to the temperature of the aircraft nose that the climate around the world is abnormal this year. In addition, winter is coming. The World Health Organization predicts that from the second half of this year to the spring of next year, the number of global patients with influenza A (HIN1) will continue to increase. Medical experts believe that the best way to prevent the spread of influenza is to strengthen personal protection and avoid contact with the virus, and wearing latex gloves is the most effective way to prevent hands from contacting the pathogen at present. Therefore, the demand for latex gloves in the international market will continue to rise. It is understood that since the second half of this year, the number of international orders received by latex glove manufacturers in Jiangsu and Shandong provinces has increased significantly. It is expected that the export volume of latex gloves in China will show a restorative growth trend in the next few years

the epidemic has made latex gloves popular

gloves made of natural rubber glue are widely used in industry, medicine and other fields because they are cheap, can protect hands from acid and alkali or other chemical substances, and in clinical practice, can prevent medical staff from microbial and viral infection

according to medical experts, it doesn't matter if people touch money or get infected with viruses and microorganisms after wearing latex gloves. In order to prevent influenza A (HIN1), many families in the United States purchase disposable latex gloves in large quantities. However, Mexico, which has been seriously affected by influenza A (H1NI), is an exception. As it is a major rubber producer and latex glove producer in the world, which eliminates the need to manually mix before construction, the number of imported medical latex gloves has not increased rapidly. In addition, although low-cost disposable plastic gloves have been developed abroad in recent years, officials of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently published an article on the FDA official website saying that in terms of protective performance, latex gloves made of natural rubber glue still have the best protective effect, and gloves made of other materials are not as good as latex gloves. The release of this statement has aggravated the tension in the supply of latex gloves in the international market

it is noteworthy that since latex glove factories in Malaysia are organized to produce according to the American latex glove quality standard (ISO13485), latex gloves produced in this country can be directly sold in the U.S. market without additional approval. At present, the country has become the largest supplier of medical latex gloves and ordinary latex gloves in developed countries such as the United States, European Union countries and Japan, and the substrate conversion rate has more than doubled. Facing the growing market demand for latex gloves, top glove, the largest latex glove manufacturer in Malaysia, plans to add 355 latex glove production lines during the year and increase its annual output of latex gloves by 70%. Thailand, Vietnam and other Southeast Asian rubber producing countries also have similar plans to expand the production of latex gloves
