Coated Gloves

Providing excellent grip, dexterity and overall comfort, coated gloves offer one of the best, most cost-effective solutions for hand protection. Magid offers one of the largest selections of coated gloves for a wide variety of general purpose applications.

Types of Coating Material:

  • Polyurethane (PU) – When used as a coating, polyurethane delivers excellent grip, puncture and abrasion resistance while providing protection against oils, fats, and greases. Because it is soft and flexible and can be applied in very thin coats, polyurethane allows for excellent dexterity and tactile sensitivity. Polyurethane coated gloves are not recommended for use with hot water.  
  • Nitrile (NBR) – Nitrile rubber offers excellent resistance to punctures, snags, abrasions and cuts while delivering good protection against oils, greases, animal fats, bases and many solvents. As a glove coating, nitrile rubber can be applied in a standard form or it can be foamed allowing it to act as a sponge. When in contact with oily surfaces, foam nitrile will soak up the oil and provide improved grip. Compared to natural rubber, nitrile offers better puncture resistance and better protection to oils and acids and is an excellent alternative for individuals with latex allergies. Nitrile coated gloves are not recommended for use with ketones and some organic solvents.  
  • Natural Rubber Latex – Flexible and waterproof, natural rubber latex glove coatings provide excellent grip, resistance to tears and extreme temperatures and provide protection against alcohols and some ketones. Latex coated gloves are not recommended for use with hydrocarbon and organic solvents, including gasoline. Caution: products containing natural rubber latex may cause allergic reactions in some individuals.  
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) – One of the most cost-effective glove coatings available, PVC (also often referred to as vinyl or simply plastic) offers good abrasion protection, flexibility in cold temperatures and excellent resistance to resins and glues. PVC also holds up well in the presence of water and most aqueous solutions, detergents, and diluted bases and acids. Compared with other coatings, PVC can be more susceptible to punctures, cuts, and snags and has limited resistance to organic solvents.  

Types of Coverage:

  • Fingertip Coated: High-density, form-fitting, fingertip-coated machine knit gloves deliver exceptional grip, dexterity and sensitivity in the handling of small parts. With minimal coating across the glove surface, breathability is maximized offering enhanced comfort.
  • Dotted: Nitrile or PVC coating is applied to the surface of a machine knit shell in a dot, crisscross, “M” or other pattern to produce an economically-priced, general purpose work glove with increased abrasion resistance, durability and improved grip. Because the coating is not continuous, the glove material breathes and can better wick moisture away from the hand to keep it cool and comfortable.
  • Palm coated: Well suited for a host of general purpose applications, including material handling and assembly work, palm coated work gloves are made with knit shells of varying weights and are available with coatings that cover the palm and front of the hand to the fingertips, enhancing grip in both dry and wet conditions. Most glove coatings extend to the back of the fingertips for added protection.
  • Three-Quarter (¾) coated: A three-quarter pattern extends the coverage found in a palm coated glove to the back of the hand with additional protection to the fingers and knuckle area. The uncoated area from the top of the back of the hand through the wrist allows the hand to breathe generally offering greater comfort than a fully coated glove.
  • Fully coated: For applications with more abrasion hazards or where wet part parts and materials may be encountered, a fully coated glove offers enhanced grip and more complete protection across the entire hand. Glove construction options include fully coated machine knit liners as well as laminated and impregnated cut-and-sewn liners and leather gloves.

Additional Selection Considerations:

  • Liner Constructions – Most general purpose, coated glove liners are machine knit from cotton, nylon, polyester or blends of some or all of these. Selecting between these constructions can be a matter of personal preference balancing comfort and cost. Coated gloves are also available in cut resistant materials offering enhanced cut protection. These gloves can be found in the cut resistant section of this catalog.  
  • Glove Cuffs – Cuff options include knit wrist, safety, gauntlet and slip on. Where knit wrist cuffs help keep the glove firmly in place on the hand, safety and gauntlet cuffs provide additional protection to the wrist and arm and can be removed easily and quickly. Slip on styles allow for easy donning and removal.  
  • Protection from Liquids - General purpose, coated knit gloves are well suited for use in dry conditions or conditions where liquids may be present in residual or trace amounts and where an enhanced grip is desired. Please note that these types of coated gloves are not liquid or chemical proof and should not be used in applications where the hand may be immersed or where it comes into contact with significant volumes of liquid. For these types of applications, chemical and liquid resistant gloves should be utilized. These gloves can be found in the corresponding section of this catalog.
