What Are 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.
- 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
Latex Palm 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.
Nitrile Palm Coated Gloves
Nitrile Palm Coating has high puncture and chemical resistance. It offers greater tactile feedback, grip, and abrasion resistance, even when wet. 3x more puncture resistant than rubber latex! Nitrile coating provide excellent resistance to punctures, cuts, snags, abrasions, oils, and fuels.
- Synthetic version of latex.
- 3x more puncture resistant than latex rubber.
- Stands up well to oil, organic solvents, and fuels.
Nitrile Micro Foam Coated Gloves
Nitrile 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.
- Additional foam coating acts like a sponge, increasing gripping power.
- Good tactile sensitivity and dexterity.
Polyurethane Palm Coated Gloves
Great for small parts handling. Non-allergenic. Good stretch, strength, and softness. Low particulate shed. Great for protection from cuts from sheet metal, steel & glass. Resistant to oils, solvents and grease. They are not designed to protect from excessive heat or cold or from harsh chemicals.
- Grips well without being “sticky”.
- Breathable and dexterous.
- Resists oil, solvents, gasoline, fats, greases, and oxidation.
- Poor resistance to hot water.
Coated gloves are an excellent choice for any application where extra protection is required. They provide you with full dexterity with an extra layer of protection against heat and skin irritants, including chemicals, germs and dyes, while preventing cuts, abrasions and other hazards. They also help keep your work environment clean, hygienic and safe for all. There are three primary factors that you should consider before choosing gloves for your specific environment: protection, dexterity and grip. Palm-coated gloves provide all of these benefits, including cut-resistant and puncture-resistant models, which make them a popular pick in a range of applications.
We offer three unique types of coated gloves. If you need a solid option for safe material handling in wet and dry commercial construction work, we highly recommend latex palm coated gloves. These puncture-resistant latex gloves feature an uncoated back for extra comfort and flexibility. Polyurethane palm coated gloves are always an excellent option for those who need exceptional grip. They provide good protection from oils, greases and solvents, but most styles are not appropriate for protecting hands from excessive temperatures or harsh chemicals. Shop gloves by top brands such as Liberty Glove & Safety, Atlas Glove, and HexArmor.
If you are looking for something that is exceptionally puncture-resistant and safe for people with latex allergies, then our nitrile coated gloves are an excellent option. These gloves are three times more puncture-resistant than gloves with latex coatings, and are excellent for preventing cuts, snags, oils and irritation. This type of glove is commonly used in aerospace, assembly, manufacturing, component handling, shipping and receiving, small parts handling and more. Harmony Lab & Safety Supplies is happy to help you order bulk coated gloves in large and small quantities alike, and our helpful customer service team is always on hand to guide you towards the right styles for your needs.
