PVC Palm-Coated Gloves
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), a synthetic thermoplastic polymer of vinyl chloride, is a very inexpensive material, making it one of the more common coatings for coated work gloves. It offers good abrasion resistance, though it may be susceptible to punctures, cuts, and snags. And while it is flexible, it does not provide the tactile sensitivity associated with most rubber products. Main Characteristics:PVC coating offers similar wear and abrasion resistance to nitrile, but has one major added benefit - many types of glue will not adhere to it. This makes gloves with PVC palm coating ideal for wood working and many other glue-related jobs. Also great for automotive assembly and trim applications, as glue won't stick to the PVC palm surface. Another benefit of PVC in work gloves is the fact that it stays flexible at lower temperatures, hence it makes a great choice for a palm-coated winter glove.
