Nitrile Finger Cots

In general, finger cots are made of latex. However, latex finger cots may not be suitable for every user because of a syndrome called latex allergy.

Latex allergy is an allergic reaction to latex protein in the natural latex. One may get latex allergy when his skin, mucous membrane like eye, mouth, vagina or rectum come in contact with latex protein.

Beside its advantage over latex finger cots on the latex allergy, nitrile finger cots have the following benefits:-

i. They have permanent ESD properties. They do not use antistatic surface coating materials.

ii. They are sulphur free and thus may not cause damage to metals like gold, silver and copper.

iii. They conform to the contour of the finger and exert less pressure on the finger as compared with latex finger cots.

iv. They achieve cleanroom cleanliness without using chlorine or surface antistatic materials.

Nitrile finger cots are ideal for pharmaceuticals and electronic manufacturing.

Finger Cot Protection

Banyan Latex Finger Cots are made of pure natural rubber latex. They are made super thin, about 2 - 4 mil, for excellent sensitivity.

Banyan Latex Finger Cots are rolled. Some are lightly powdered while others are powder free.

The main function of the finger cot is protection. They are used for blisters, abrasion and cuts. It could be used for lightly bandaged fingers for protection from moisture and dirt for short period of time as air circulation is reduced with the finger cots on.

Finger cots can be used to protect fingers from contamination and infection.

A piece of warning to potential users of latex finger cots: as latex finger cots contain natural rubber, it may cause allergy reactions to users.

Endau Rompin National Park

I went to the Endau Rompin National Park recently.

As it is only accessible by using four wheel drive, one must own one, borrow from a friend or hire from the National Park office at Kahang, about 20 km from Kluang town.

Among the attractions which intrigue me are the giant bird, hornbill, pitcher plant and waterfalls.

There are some 253 types of birds recorded and 179 species of butterflies which can be found here.

I opted to stay in a chalet next to the Visitor Centre. The compound is surrounded by ancient tropical rainforest where sound of cicada could be heard the whole day. The only drawback here is that there are mosquitoes. Much to my great shock was that there are banners warning the people especially the aborigines on the danger of malaria.

The aborigines are staying in a village called Kampung Peta. The visitors may try the blowpipe and buy handicraft including the famous "asli puzzle". There is one sundry shop in the village.

There is a jetty in the Kampung Peta where one may travel by boat to Kuala Jasin. This is the reference point to many intresting places like Janing Barat and waterfalls. Visitor may camp at Kuala Jasin.

Wild elephant could be spotted near the Visitor Complex. A photo outside the Visitor Complex office showed a tiger straying at the other side of the river. Hence it is advisible to hire a guide to bring you around as he knows the way to avoid these animals.

Finger Cot

I come across the finger cot when a friend brought a sample and showed to me. He explained to me that in manufacturing industry where sensitive item like CD,DVD, LCD need to be handled with care and free of skin salt, finger cots are essential items.

The finger cot has to be thrown away once taken off your finger; you have to wear new finger cots.

There are many types of finger cots in the market. There are cotton finger cot, nitrile finger cot, nylon finger cot and latex finger cot.

Latex finger cot are comfortable, flexible and long lasting.

Since latex has to be tapped from rubber tree, the source of latex is limited to tropical countries like Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Malaysia nowadays is the importer of latex as opposed to latex exporter previously.
Some may feel sad learning about this fact. However, economically Malaysia still gains because of natural rubber dipped products and rubber wood furnitures.

Johor Old Temple

The last 14 of February 2009 was a Valentine's Day. It also coincided with an auspicios day of the Johor Old Temple whereby the images of the deities were transferred out of the temple and put to chingay procession.

I happened to be on the spot just in front of the Johor Old Temple. There were many worshippers carrying joysticks waiting for the images of the 5 deities being transferred out of the temple.

After hearing the sound of whistle and shout inside the temple, the first image of deity was transferred out. The worshippers and audience clapped their hands and shouted in exitement. It followed by the images of the other 4 deities.

One specific act performed by the carriers of the images of deities was that the images of deities riding on the sedan chairs were swung left and right many times along the procession to the Resting Temple about 3 km away.

This tradition has been conducted since 100 years ago.

As the Johor Old Temple witnesses the growth of Johor Bahru, the celebration is very meaningful to Johor Bahru Chinese until they claim that the Chinese New Year is not over until the Chingay Procession.
