Nitrile Gloves contain Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR), a synthetic material made by combining monomers such as butadiene and acrylonitrile in a big vat. Acrylonitrile is a volatile synthetic liquid with a strong smell. Butadiene is a colorless gas and organic compound that can easily become liquid.
When the two combine, they cause a chemical reaction known as polymerization, creating liquid nitrile. Glove manufacturers then filter the nitrile and combine it with an antioxidant and coagulating agents to transform the liquid into a more stable material.
