I was looking for long sleeve latex gloves, one of the critical components needed to build the famous Korean "phone booth" for Covid-19 test. After search online and contacted many stores, distributors and even gloves factories, and realise that long sleeve gloves is in short supplies and expensive.
What I found plenty is the normal type which is elbow length. What I did was to cut off one of the pair at a point between wrist and thumb. Then both gloves were attached to a PVC band.

Caution:
Before put to use, please check the gloves for manufacturing date and test the gloves for leaking/holes, damage and lost of elasticity.

Cut the glove at a point as show on the photo.

Step 2: Cut a Band Out of a 4.5 Inch PVC Duct

The width is approximately 1 inch.

Step 3: Apply Double Sided Tape Along the PVC Band

This is to prevent the glove from slip away from PVC band.
