Material Guide

Synthetic Rubber: Nitrile

Nitrile gloves are produced using acrylonitrile-butadiene elastic and contain no latex proteins. These gloves are perfect for latex-sensitive people. 

Our well-known product, nitrile gloves protect the wearer from most solvents and oils, and are great for cut and puncture protection. In any case, they are not suggested for utilization in ketones and a couple of natural solvents. (For subtle elements, allude to Summit Glove Chemical Resistant Glove Guide) 

Gloves produced using nitrile are accessible in four distinctive mil thicknesses as able to use both hands examination sort, and under control particular styles, both lined and unlined. Nitrile examination gloves are utilized as a part of medicinal applications by First Responders, restorative work force and research facility staff, and for constrained sprinkle assurance in chemicals. Heavier nitrile gloves are routinely utilized as a part of assembling, cleaning and the sustenance handling industry.

Polyurethane (PU) Coated

Polyurethane coating on fine gauge knit gloves offers superior dexterity and performs well in alcohols, grease, animal fats, acids and bases, but is not recommended for use in organic solvents. (Excellent parts handling and assembly glove.)

Foamed Nitrile

Porous nitrile coating absorbs oils better than flat coating. Provides excellent grip in oily or greasy applications while maintaining the cut, slash and abrasion resistance of a flat nitrile coating. The foamed nitrile coating absorbs oil and grease to ensure a firm grip.

Natural Rubber Latex

The most established fluid proof glove material, characteristic elastic exceeds expectations at ensuring the wearer from gentle acids, alcohols, bases and most weakened arrangements of chemicals. 

Tough characteristic elastic gloves are usually utilized as a part of mechanical applications, for cleaning, and in food processing and handling. They offer an abnormal state of assurance against cuts, however are not suggested for utilization in oils. Our examination latex gloves are offered in varied thicknesses for high sensitivity or additional protection. 

Note: Gloves made of natural elastic latex can result in hypersensitive responses in a few people. On the off chance that responses happen, suspend utilize instantly, and counsel a doctor. Pick an engineered elastic, for example, nitrile or vinyl, as a substitute.

Polyester/Cotton Blends

Varied combinations of yarn blends increase machine knit strength and durability, while still allowing for worker dexterity. Often coated with rubber, nitrile or other substances to improve grip and longevity. Can be used in unsupported gloves for lining, and for insulating properties.

KEVLAR®

One of the strongest of all fibers, this aramid offers excellent cut protection and heat insulation, but offers little protection from abrasion.

UHMWPE

A highly cut resistant fiber yarn offering maximum cut protection and a high level of flexibility. Our polyurethane coated UHMWPE knit gloves are ideal for assembly operations and sharp parts handling.

Synthetic Rubber: Neoprene

Neoprene offers prevalent assurance against oils, acids, solvents and burning chemicals, however is to some degree less viable against scraped area and cuts than either regular elastic or nitrile. 

Offered in backed, unsupported, lined or unlined styled for utilization in applications, for example, manufacturing, chemical handling of and cleaning. Natural rubber gloves for improved chemical resistance.

Wool

A natural fibre which is subtle, soft and comfortable. Wool has excellent heat insulation and has natural flame resistance. Wool also provides good dexterity when used as a liner in conjunction with materials.

Cotton

A natural fibre that is exceptionally subtle, soft and comfortable. Cotton also excels in absorbing perspiration and is breathable. It insulates well, making it ideal to use in heat resistant products.

Acrylic

A synthetic fiber that helps provide insulation from cold temperatures and is quick drying.

Polyester

A durable, synthetic fiber that is resistant to abrasion and tearing with low moisture absorbency that resists shrinkage during laundering.

Nylon

Nylon is a synthetic, low linting, high tensile strength fiber that offers excellent dexterity and tactile sensitivity.
