Looking for an Alternative to Leather Work Gloves? Try Zedcoat!

by Joe Geng on September 8, 2016

Comments (0)

Maybe it’s for ethical reasons or maybe it’s a pricing issue, but a lot of people are looking for alternatives to leather gloves. Don’t get me wrong, we love leather gloves (our company was built on leather work gloves) but leather can be expensive, hot and bulky.

If you’re looking for an alternative to leather, you should consider choosing one of the options from our  ZedCoat™ series.

We’ve put together some FAQs (frequently asked questions) to give you more insight into what sets ZedCoat™ apart from other palm coatings.


What is ZedCoat™?

ZedCoat™ is a flat nitrile palm coating created in-house by our Superior Glove engineers. The first thing you’ll notice about these gloves is the vibrant green color, the second thing you’ll notice is the protection they offer against abrasion hazards – our S13TANT model has an abrasion resistance 46% higher than the next leading palm coated glove. They are also touchscreen compatible.

What makes ZedCoat™ special?

ZedCoat™ is a great alternative for its strong abrasion resistance. The This coating also offers nearly on-par grip with foam nitrile in wet and oily conditions, but unlike our other palm dips, ZedCoat™ has no soak through meaning you’ll have dry, happy hands.

Will ZedCoat™ peel?

No, the glove’s shell has gone through a process called Factoring™, which enhances adhesion and removes the risk of the coating delaminating from the shell, even when the glove has been laundered or worn for extended periods of time.



What applications are best for ZedCoat™?

ZedCoat™ can be used anywhere where good grip or high abrasion resistance are needed. Currently offered on Kevlar® (S13TANT) and TenActiv™ (S18KGNT and S18TAFGNT) shells, these gloves are perfect for the construction, automotive, metal fabrication and oilfield work industries to name a few.
