What are Nitrile Coated Work Gloves?
Summary: Nitrile coated work gloves save workers from discomfort associated with cold weather and allow them to work free and easy with additional protection from cuts, abrasions and chemicals.
If you’ve had to try to grab a screw or a nail in the dead of winter, then you’ll appreciate how it feels to not have the dexterity to complete basic tasks. Coated gloves are ideal for technicians handling small parts who need protection from sheet metal, petroleum products, and a harsh winter.
If you aren’t sure if nitrile coated work gloves are for you, keep reading because it might be that a different coated glove fits your application perfectly. We have decades of experience supplying coated gloves to industrial manufacturing centers, warehouses, and research centers that require hand protection.
Are nitrile coated gloves safe?
Yes, nitrile coated gloves are safe and provide an extra layer of protection against cold, punctures, abrasions and other hazardous factors. Nitrile coated gloves are a type of work glove with a synthetic rubber coating for added grip and protection. Unlike natural latex, nitrile is a 100% synthetic material that wont inflame allergies.
Warehouse workers benefit from nitrile coated gloves because of their balance between warmth and protection. With the right glove workers will be protected from cold, harmful chemicals and oils, along with advanced grip that makes handling precise instruments easy.
The nitrile coating withstands oil and other petroleum products without degradation. Also, the nitrile barrier protects your skin by not allowing harmful chemicals to seep through. These gloves do not break down easily and can be washed in cold water and hung dry to use time and time again.
The main benefits of nitrile coated gloves are listed below:
- Reduce hand fatigue
- Protection from cuts, punctures, chemicals, hazards
- Versatile; Balances Protection, Dexterity, and Grip.
- Ideal for handling tools, machinery and tasks involving your hands.
- Comfortable for all-day wear
Nitrile has high puncture and broad chemical resistance. It offers greater tactile feedback, grip, and abrasion resistance, even when wet. Nitrile is 3x more puncture resistant than latex rubber!
Nitrile coating provide excellent resistance to punctures, cuts, snags, abrasions, oils, and fuels. Micro foam coated gloves are a good choice for working in “wet” environments. The microfoam coating acts similar to a sponge and provides extra gripping power.
What are latex coated gloves?
Natural Rubber Textured Latex Palm Coatings offer good grip. Latex coating provides abrasion resistance and is great for handling building materials. Latex has very high elasticity and grip compared to other glove materials, and withstands extreme temperature and tearing. Latex coated gloves are great for a number of tasks including general maintenance, shipping, receiving, assembling, and concrete/brick/lumber handling.
- High elasticity and grip.
- Great tear resistance.
- Poor resistance against most hydrocarbon and organic solvents (i.e. gasoline).
- Can cause allergic reactions.
What are polyurethane coated gloves?
Nothing beats a firm grip on work. Palm Coated Gloves (AKA Dipped Gloves) are designed to protect your hands from cuts and abrasions and offer extra grip. Most coated gloves are made of engineered knit fibers for the glove part. The glove “shell” is then dipped in various coatings to make that great gripping texture and protection! Coatings provide additional protection while resisting punctures and abrasions and offering improved grip while working.
- Grips well without being “sticky”.
- Breathable and dexterous.
- Resists oil, solvents, gasoline, fats, greases, and oxidation.
- Poor resistance to hot water.
