Nitrile Grip Gloves

Nitrile Grip Gloves

Did you know that there are 110,000 lost time cases due to hand injuries every single year--and that 70% of workers who experience hand injuries aren’t wearing gloves? 

The truth is, a good pair of work gloves offers more than just comfort. Work gloves give you the protection you need to get the job done right and focus on keeping your customers happy. 

Here’s why nitrile coated gloves are a great choice for work gloves and how you can choose the perfect glove for the task at hand. 

The Importance of Work Gloves for Safety

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of work gloves. If you want your team to focus on the job instead of the hazards of the job, 

First and foremost, work gloves provide a layer of protection. The type of protection depends on the glove, but it includes everything from sharp hazards to biohazards to harsh chemicals. 

Second, gloves help improve your grip while working. That’s especially important when doing fine work and any sort of work where your hands may get wet. Oh, and when it’s time to move heavy objects, work gloves can give you a better grip so that you don’t have to strain (or risk dropping something heavy). 

Third, work gloves can also provide temperature insulation, which is incredibly important when working in extreme weather conditions or any work conditions involving major temperature shifts. 

Oh, and did we mention that PPE is a legal requirement for employers? Under standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employers are legally obligated to provide personal protective equipment to employees that is appropriate for their work tasks so that employees are always able to perform their jobs safely. 

Why Nitrile is a Great Choice for Work Gloves

For workers who need a hardy work glove, nitrile is an outstanding choice for durability. It’s often the number one choice for industrial workers for that reason. 

Also known as acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber, nitrile is a synthetic copolymer made by bonding acrylonitrile and butadiene molecules into a tough substance which can later be used to shape gloves. 

When You Need Durability, Reach for Nitrile Gloves

When industrial workers need work gloves that can get the job done, they reach for nitrile--and your team should too. 

For one thing, nitrile gloves are highly puncture resistant, up to three times more puncture resistant than latex. Nitrile also offers far greater chemical resistance than latex, offering good resistance to: 

  • Weak acids
  • Weak caustics
  • Fuels
  • Vegetable oils
  • Grease
  • Household detergents
  • Some solvents

However, it doesn’t perform well against: 

  • Strong acids
  • Ketones
  • Alcohols
  • Aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Esters
  • Ethers
  • Amines

The net result is a solid glove that can perform well against many standard chemical hazards. 

How Nitrile Coated Work Gloves Keep Your Hands Safe

There are work gloves, and then there are work gloves. Nitrile coated work gloves fall in the latter category. 

These are gloves that have been treated for even more durability and toughness so that they can hold up to even the hardest jobs. The glove benefits from a nitrile coat that provides nitrile’s natural durability, but you also get the protection from a different glove material that nitrile might not otherwise provide. 

Basically, nitrile coated work gloves give you a little bit of everything for an all-around reliable pair of work gloves. 

How to Choose a Great Pair of Nitrile Coated Gloves

For workers who need work gloves that can get the job done, it’s time to make the switch to nitrile coated work gloves. The trick is choosing the right pair of gloves to meet the task at hand. 

As with any other glove, it comes down to three factors: 

  1. Size
  2. Fit
  3. Thickness

First, the right safety glove is one that fits your hand without too much wiggle room. Otherwise, you’ll have to deal with slippage, which compromises your grip and the efficacy of the glove. 

Second, once you find the right glove size, pay attention to how the glove is designed to fit, as a bad fit can eliminate the benefit of a glove that’s the right size. Nitrile, in particular, isn’t as flexible as latex, so you should look for a glove with a close, stretchy fit and a loose cuff. This makes it easy to take your gloves on and off while ensuring the glove stays in place while you work. 

Third, check the glove thickness. The thicker the glove, the more durable it is, but the less tactile sensitivity it provides. Industrial workers need the thickest gloves (6 mil and up). Remember, glove thickness isn’t universal across the whole gloves. Thickness ratings are based on thickness in the fingers, where you’ll need the most protection.
