Have you ever heard the term “information overload”? It’s the anxiety you feel when trying to understand a topic but there is too much information available. It’s not uncommon to feel that way when choosing between glove coatings.
The aim of this blog is to give you everything that you need to know about coatings so that you can pick the perfect pair, regardless of the job.
A coating is a great addition to a glove because it increases grip and provides better abrasion, cut, puncture or chemical protection. But each palm coating has its strong suits and weak spots. The goal of this blog is to showcase different glove coatings, so the next time you’re choosing a coated glove, you’ll know exactly what to use.

Nitrile is popular as an alternative to latex for people with allergies. Great for industries like assembly, automotive and metal fabrication.
ZedCoat™ is a nitrile glove coating, but this one is available only by Superior Glove. Great for automotive, aerospace and glass industries, ZedCoat™ has very high abrasion resistance and grip.
Nitrile can be foamed through mechanical mixing to create a coating that acts like a sponge. Liquids are soaked up, keeping the coating dry to considerably improve grip. Foam nitrile is great for industries like automotive, construction and small parts handling.
Infused with millions of tiny bubbles, micropore nitrile increases grip by creating a suction to displace liquids. Great for industries where good grip is needed like automotive, manufacturing and metal fabrication.
Neoprene is a synthetic rubber made by the polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene has good chemical stability and has good heat-resistant properties. This coating is generally used on gloves for chemical-resistant and fire-retardant applications.
Polyurethane is a fan favorite because it’s relatively inexpensive, doesn’t inhibit dexterity and has a low-particulate shed. This glove coating is perfect for industries like aerospace, detailed assembly and inspection.
Latex gets a bad rap because of the allergies associated with this coating. But latex is great in industries like masonry, landscaping and construction because of its excellent grip and durability.
The short-form for polyvinyl chloride, PVC is the world’s third-most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer. Great for industries like furniture making, petrochemical industry and wood working.
Are you feeling oddly confident and relaxed? That’s not surprising. The number one cure for information overload is to simplify and clarify the contents. Congratulations on becoming a glove coating pro!
