Polycotton Gloves, Nylon gloves, Cotton Gloves

By: Armour Safety  06-Dec-2011

Polycotton gloves are the most common of gloves as they are cheap and comfortable to wear providing basic protection from abrasion, cuts and cold. They provide little or no resistance to wetness, chemicals or heat but they do allow the wearer good sensitivity and dexterity.

If lint from a cotton/polycotton glove is a problem you might want to consider a nylon glove. Often used to protect products from fingermarks rather than protection for the hand.

The cotton interlock glove is a very thin 100% cotton glove, ideal for when "feel" is very important.

The Cotton Terry Loop Pile gloves is a thick cotton glove providing protection in low heat situations.
