Punch Water in the Face: Guide to Water-Resistant Gloves

by Joe Geng on November 4, 2015

Comments (0)

Water-resistant gloves are tough to find. They’re necessary when handling wet and slippery materials like glass or sheet metal. You need a glove that’s going to keep your hand dry and safe from any potential hazards.

Hands Holding Water
When customers need water resistant or any liquid resistant gloves, these are the questions they ask:


1. “I Need a Glove that Will Withstand a Small Amount of Water or Oil.”

If you’re looking for gloves that will protect you from random splotches and splashes, it’s best to look for a glove that’s had a water-resistant treatment applied to it Oilbloc™ or Waterstop™. Our Endura® Kevlar lined Waterstop™/Oilbloc™ gloves are ideal for oil and water repellent. The 378GOBKL gloves are great because oil won’t soak through.

2. “I’m Tired of my Hands Getting Soaking Wet.”

If you’ve found yourself saying this before, ideally, you’ll want a glove that was not only treated on the outside with a waterproofing spray, but that also has a special waterproof membrane sandwiched in between the inner and outer parts of the glove.

You likely work in a cold environment. If this is you, you’ll  want to check out our Endura® Fully Winter-Lined Fitter Gloves.They’re made with WaterTite™, so they’re waterproof. As a bonus, they’re also Thinsulate™ lined, so your hands won’t get cold.

3. “I’m Going Fishing in the North Atlantic.”

If you’re in this boat – pun intended – and immersing your hands in the water on a regular basis, you’ll want to choose a glove with a waterproof (not just water-resistant!) outer lining, such as nitrile. The most important factor is making sure the outer lining of the glove will stay flexible in any condition that you’re working in.

Sometimes nitrile or PVC glove will tend to get stiff in cold weather. To combat this, you’ll want to choose a glove that was specially formulated for cold weather.

That’s where the North Sea Winter Nitrile Coated Glove comes in. This winter nitrile glove offers puncture resistance and abrasion resistance. It’s specially formulated to stay flexible in colder temperatures.
