The latest innovations in nitrile-based glove coatings have created a game-changing double-dip that takes the best of traditional palm coatings and rolls them into one unique glove treatment without sacrificing dexterity or tactile sensitivity.
What's new in coated work gloves? For a long time, the answer to that question has been, not much! There have been many innovations in the work gloves themselves, including far higher cut levels and coreless technology that makes hand protection lighter and less irritating. But the coatings we use to increase grip as well as abrasion and liquid resistance have remained pretty consistent.
Traditional Glove Coatings Coated gloves are made by taking a machine-knit base glove and dipping it into the desired coating. Dipping ranges from a partial dip that covers the palm and fronts of the fingers, to a ¾ dip, to a fully dipped glove. Most coated gloves are single dipped, meaning they’re dipped only once. Some are double-dipped, meaning the glove is dipped, allowed to dry, and then dipped again to provide a thicker coating.
For years, your choices in glove coatings have been polyurethane, nitrile, sandy nitrile, foam nitrile, or latex. And each of these comes with benefits and drawbacks.
Polyurethane Benefits: The lightest, softest, and most flexible of the coating choices, polyurethane offers the best dexterity and tactile sensitivity—making it a popular choice for comfort and grip. Ideal for dry grip and ease of handling small parts, it's also good in lighter oil conditions.
Drawbacks: This lighter coating tends to have less abrasion resistance than some others and can lose effective grip in heavy oil applications.
Nitrile Benefits: Nitrile creates a tough coating that provides excellent abrasion and puncture resistance that stands up well to oil.
Drawbacks: A tough coating makes for less dexterity and tactile sensitivity, so it’s harder to do jobs that require handling small parts.
Anti Puncture Gloves
Sandy Nitrile Benefits: The sandy texture creates a non-slip grip that's good for heavy oils and liquids. Perfect for abrasion, puncture, cut, and snag resistance, this is a common choice for the oil and gas and heavy metal stamping industries.
