What are polychloroprene gloves?

Polychloroprene gloves are made of a synthetic material, yet possess the stretch, fit and feel of natural latex. They are made of resilient chloroprene (a colourless liquid organic compound which is used in the synthesis of polychloroprene and certain other rubbers) allowing for the increased dexterity and sensitivity necessary for delicate procedures. They are more puncture resistant than vinyl or latex, yet more comfortable than regular nitrile or vinyl gloves.  

Originally produced by DuPont, Neoprene is a brand name of polychloroprene.
