When we talk about supported and unsupported gloves, we’re generally referring to chemical-resistant gloves.
Supported gloves have a fabric liner which is dipped in liquids compounds like nitrile, latex or neoprene. The liner could vary from something as simple as cotton-jersey for added puncture resistance and sweat absorption or it could be more intricate like Kevlar® or Dyneema® to create a cut-resistant chemical glove.
Unsupported gloves won’t have a liner and the hand form will be directly dipped into the liquid compound, and there isn’t a liner that supports the compound. Explore our full line-up of chemical-resistant gloves.
