3 Signs You Need Palm-Coated Work Gloves

by Frank MacDonald on April 12, 2016

Palm-coated work gloves are a cost-effective alternative to leather, but they have a few more benefits. This blog looks at some of those benefits and provides glove suggestions.

Palm-lined gloves provide a better barrier between you and your work.


1. You Need Good Grip in Slippery Situations:

It’s a problem as old as time: having good grip when you’re working in wet and oily conditions. Any mechanic or roughneck can confirm this.

The odds are against you when you’re up against oils and greases. The good news is that palm-coated gloves can noticeably improve your grip. When choosing a glove coating for these conditions, choose micropore nitrile. This style of nitrile glove has millions of tiny pores in the coating that create a suction on wet surfaces.

Try a glove like our award-winning Dexterity® 13-Gauge Kevlar® Gloves with Micropore Nitrile Grip.

Side note: Not all palm-coated work gloves displace oil. For example, you’ll look like Bambi on ice if you’re wearing polyurethane-coated gloves when working with oils. But when you need better grip in dry conditions, polyurethane-coated gloves are a life saver!


2. You’re Tired of Getting Jabbed and Stabbed:

He’s going to wish he’d worn palm-coated gloves.

Why is it that something as small as a splinter can feel like you’ve met with the wrong end of a porcupine? If you’re regularly facing puncture risks like splinters or glass shards, palm coatings will improve your day.

Look for a nitrile or latex palm coating to provide a good barrier between your hand and the pointy offender, like our Emerald CX® 10-Gauge ANSI A6 Cut-Resistant Glove with Nitrile Palm.

Side note: For threats from hypodermic needles or similar thin, sharp risks, you’ll need a glove made with Punkban™. Learn more about the different puncture ratings here.


3. You Want Some Flexibility Plus Protection:

We mentioned in the side note above that polyurethane isn’t great for oils and greases, but when you need protection and flexibility, polyurethane is your best option.
The coating protects your palms and the thumb crotch area, which are at a higher risk of cuts. And, with three open fingertips on each hand, you can work on a wide range of projects without taking off or changing gloves.

The TenActiv™ 15-Gauge Cut-Resistant Gloves with Grey Polyurethane Palms has great flexibility and dexterity and the TenActiv™ yarn provides a cool feeling against the skin.

Side note: These gloves aren’t for handling chemicals or any other task where the first few fingertips are at serious risk of injury.

So there you have it, three great reasons to celebrate palm coatings. Ready to try some out yourself? Click the button to get your sample!
