- Powder-Free Nitrile Exam Gloves with Low Dermatitis Potential are
- Created from newly patented LOW DERMA™
- accelerator-free nitrile technology, delivering
- improved stretch and chemical permeation resistance,
- Excellent tactile sensitivity and softness, and
- Reduced risk of glove-related allergic contact dermatitis.
Thiamine, thiazoles and carbonates accelerate allergic reactions. Cross-link technology optimizes the safety level of glove by removing chemical accelerators. This stand alone ability eliminates sulfur and other bonding chemicals without impeding elasticity.
Extraordinary Hand Protection
Accelerator-free nitrile technology improves stretch and chemical permeation resistance. Tactile response and softness associated with chemical accelerators no longer risk of glove-related allergic contact dermatitis.
Packed 300 gloves to a box, Scion700 is a space-saving, reduced-packaging option that takes up less room on your shelf, reduces reorder frequency, and is better for the environment.

Most Frequent Questions and Answers about Contact Dermatitis
Occupationally related contact dermatitis is a skin condition that can develop from frequent and repeated use of hand hygiene products, exposure to chemicals and glove use. Contact dermatitis is classified as either irritant or allergic.
Chemical accelerators are used in the glove manufacturing process to “accelerate” the linkage of rubber molecules in natural rubber latex or synthetic rubber latex, such as nitrile and vinyl. The chemicals transform the liquid rubber into a thin, strong and elastic glove film, and stabilizes the material.
These sulfur-based chemical accelerators (dithiocarbamates, thiurams and mercaptobenzothiazoles (MBT)) cause the majority of skin dermatitis reactions.
Each person is unique. Some individuals know within a few hours, while others require an extended trial of several days or even weeks to know if accelerator-free gloves will resolve their hand dermatitis. Additional samples are available for individuals needing a longer period of time to evaluate the glove.These sulfur-based chemical accelerators (dithiocarbamates, thiurams and mercaptobenzothiazoles (MBT) cause the majority of skin dermatitis reactions.
Yes. Although 90% of glove allergies are caused by accelerators, other substances sometimes used in the manufacture of gloves, such as lanolin, polyoxypropyleneglycol (a coagulant,) dyes (organic or inorganic,) quaternary ammonium compounds, and preservatives, can cause an allergic reaction.
Yes. According to NIOSH, “because the prognosis of occupational irritant and allergic dermatitis is poor, prevention is imperative. This fact is emphasized by one study showing that 75% of patients with occupational contact dermatitis developed chronic skin disease.” (3) With thousands of potentially harmful chemicals being introduced into the workplace each year, it is important to reduce your exposure wherever possible.
