Glove Coatings 101 šŸ–ļø

Different coatings on work gloves are available depending on what you are exposed to in daily work. Even though some are similar, they are different in important aspects. For example, nitrile and latex are similar but a person with a latex allergy may be able to wear nitrile gloves because they are synthetic. We are going to go over a few coating materials and what they can provide you.

However, all gloves are made differently so this is just an overview of these materials. Be sure to check the product descriptions on the specific product you are interested in before you purchase a pair in a certain category.
