Pick the Best Coated Gloves for Auto Manufacturing

by Julie on March 16, 2017

Superior Glove’s Key Industry Manager Derek Coughlin recently sat down with our content marketer Matt Burtney to discuss the best coated gloves for auto manufacturing. In this lightning-round discussion, Derek explains the benefits of three palm-coating favorites in the automotive industry: polyurethane, foam nitrile and micropore nitrile.

Featured glove: TenActiv™ Polyurethane Palm Coating with Reinforced Thumb

Polyurethane is a favorite because it’s relatively inexpensive, doesn’t inhibit dexterity and has a low-particulate shed. It has a high level of comfort, it’s lightweight and flexible and has a great grip in dry conditions.

Why Derek loves this coating: “This is the number one palm coating out there. Really the claim to fame for polyurethane is the dexterity. It’s not very good in oil but any dry applications — it’s excellent for dexterity and grip.”


Foam Nitrile

Featured glove: TenActiv™ 18-Gauge Cut-Resistant Glove with Foam Nitrile Palms

Foam nitrile acts like a sponge. Liquids are soaked into the glove, keeping its surface dry which considerably improves grip. Foam nitrile is great for auto manufacturing because of its excellent breathability and dexterity and good abrasion resistance.

Why Derek loves this coating: “This coating will actually absorb the oil into the glove and get the grip on the part so that it doesn’t slip out of your hand. The problem with the foam nitrile is that it tends to wear a bit quicker because of the air in the foam. But it is very good in oil.”


Micropore Nitrile

Featured glove: Dexterity® Kevlar® Gloves with Micropore Nitrile Grip

Micropore is infused with millions of tiny bubbles to increase grip by creating a suction to displace liquids. Micropore nitrile has a high abrasion resistance and a lower soak through rate than foam nitrile.

Why Derek loves this coating: “Micropore nitrile alleviates the wear point on the glove but also gives better grip in oil than even the foam nitrile. If you look under a microscope the micropore finish looks like suction cups. It gives a good grip on the any of the parts you have so you’re not slipping out of your hands.”
