Hi all, I have just spent about 30 minutes with google trying to find a source for GripSafe by SemperGuard gloves. No luck just confusion. I want this particular brand as it was suggested on PCC.  I have gone through so many different brands that are baggy and loose.  Can anyone help me with a source for these particular gloves?  Thanks a bunch.

After some searching, I came to the conclusion that the gloves are made by Sempermed and are called "semperguard nitrile gloves".

I found that they are possibly available at (the only thing is that the discription does not say gripsafe anywhere):

Hope this helps. I myself do not use gloves, so I cannot give you a definite answer as to where 'my source' would be.

Hi crafts4joy,  Thank you for taking the time to look this up for me.  I appreciate it. 

I came across this page last night myself before posting here and was considering purchasing them.  I wondered if they were now calling them nitrile gloves. I've never used the nitrile gloves so I  don't know what they are like. 

But most importantly what concerned me about them is that they are described as having "textured fingertips".  I'm not sure if that would defeat my intention for using them.  The only way for me to tell may be to just purchase some and see. 

If anyone has used them did you like them?

Again thanks for crafts4joy for your assistance.

Nitrile gloves are available without textured fingertips, though you can turn textured ones inside out and they work sort of OK. Nitrile gloves are safest to use for health reasons because they are more hypoallergenic, but they don't fit nearly as snugly as latex and are a bear to put on because they have so little stretch. They always seem to bag, no matter what I do. You can purchase them at pharmacies. You can cut the fingers off gloves to use as individual cotlets. I purchase un-powdered gloves when I use full gloves and use corn starch on my hands as a lubricant.

Hi Anita,

Thanks for taking the time to give me some input.  I will use your suggestion about the corn starch.  One thing I am trying to avoid with the gloves is the bagging.  I wished the gloves I previously used were not discontinued.  They were perfect.  It took me some time to find them because the ones I used before them bagged.  Since I've used up my stash of them, every glove I've tried since then also is baggy and for me this defeats the purpose of why I used them. 

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Bummer. There must be some kind of law of nature that those things we like best are the things that get discontinued! (like PC clay formulas)

I hear ya!  Bummer is right.  I've stock piled discontinued clay colors.  However, just like the gloves they to will eventually run out .
