The question of nitrile gloves and silver has been discussed
previously on the DistList.  It is my understanding that the colour
is not so important as whether the gloves have an additional coating
or not.  This coating helps to seal in the chlorides from
manufacture, at least this is what I was told by my supplier.  I use
Ansell Nitratex  for this reason, please let me know if you would
like a pair.  I would be very interested to read your results.
