Latex Coated Gloves

Types of Latex-Coated Gloves

According to the type of the latex surface itself and thus the manufacturing process, latex coated gloves can have crinkled latex surfaces, sandy, foamy, or smooth.

When it comes to choices, you will be also able to choose the lining material of the gloves itself. Choose whatever feels best on your skin.

Common options are cotton, polycotton, polyester, nylon, or acrylic lining. All of these materials can be woven into different glove shells with different properties such as machine knit (form-fitting and seamless, jersey (economical and comforting), and canvas (resilient and tough).

Lastly, when choosing the appropriate pair of latex-coated gloves you can also choose the coverage option (to which extent the gloves are coated).

Usually, they can be fully coated (protecting the entire hand), palm coated (covering the palm), fingertip coated (appropriate for handling small parts), and three-quarter coated (coating extending to the backs of fingers allowing liquid resistance and coverage on the back of the hand).

The details for the different latex coated gloves introduce :

1) Crinkle latex coated gloves

Taking a closer look at the palm surface of these types of gloves, you will notice a crinkled and uneven surface hence their name. With a specific chemical process which makes the latex crinkle, crinkle latex-coated gloves are given a few vital properties which are the key to proper protection in some industries.

This type of gloves will not only have exceptional grip in dry conditions but also more importantly in wet conditions as well. Additionally, the crinkled surface equals increased resilience in terms of cuts and tears.

Most commonly, this particular type of gloves is used in rough construction industries and conditions when dealing with wood, stone, concrete blocks, scrap metals, and boxes. To reduce the chemical remain and good feeling, then latex coated gloves also can be washed before the package.

Crinkle latex gloves can be coated on different liners. here we introduce some popular designs:

  • 10 gauge 5 yarn polyester glove, this is a very common design in the market, which is suitable for medium or high-quality work, as this kind of liner supplies a very comfortable touch feeling for all-day
  • 13 gauge or 15 gauge polyester latex crinkle gloves, this is the most popular in the market as it lightweight and cheap price, these gloves are a good function of resistance to puncture.  Also, the liner can use nylon instead of polyester, nylon has a longer lifetime and is more breathable than polyester, the same, the price will be higher
  • 10 gauge 2 yarn polycotton, which is also a very common design in the market for its economic price (as polycotton is a recycled material. polycotton which means cotton and polyester mixed blending)  ), polycotton glove is a very comfortable glove that doesn’t compromise functionality. The glove is durable and puncture-resistant.

According to the coated position, latex gloves can be palm-coated (also the most common one ), half-coated, and fully coated.

2) Sandy latex coated gloves

The second type that we are about to explain is the sandy latex coated gloves. Hence the gripping capabilities type is spectacular especially when it comes to working in wet or oily conditions. The sandy finish is achieved with a special procedure and salt-alike substance used in the manufacturing process.

Because of their extraordinary grip, these are the most regularly seen and used type of gloves. Furthermore, besides the gripping function, this type is quite comfortable, and flexible, and allows the skin to breathe.

Sandy latex-coated gloves can be coated with different liners, different gauge polyester, and nylon, as well as with acrylic for winter. No matter which kind of gloves, the sandy latex gloves can supper a good feeling in your work.

According to the coated position, sandy latex gloves can be palm coated (also the most common one ), half coated, thumb coated, and also as the 2nd layer of latex together with the half or fully coated gloves.

3) Foam latex coated gloves

This type of glove is chosen when priorities are flexibility, breathability, and ultimately the comfort of the person wearing it. The sponge foam latex coating provides not only a lightweight and strong grip but also durability and resilience.

They are prone to tears and abrasions, which is the most important thing when it comes to protecting the hands from injuries. Hence of their ergonomics and comfort, they are commonly used during light engineering tasks and general handling.

The biggest advantage of the foam latex glove is it can keep a flexible feeling even in cold climates.

Foam latex-coated gloves can be coated with different liners, different gauge polyester, nylon, as well as acrylic for winter.

According to the coated position, foam latex gloves can be palm-coated (also the most common one ), or half-coated.

4) Smooth latex coated gloves

As the name itself says, the texture seen and felt on these gloves is smooth. This texture is achieved without any special chemical processes. The lack of structure makes this type resistant to abrasion, perforation, and snags while at the same time providing you with excellent puncture resistance, flexible grip, and much-needed tactile sensitivity.

For the position, smooth latex coated gloves are coated.

Of course, there are many other types of latex-coated gloves in the market. The above types are the most common in the market.

Compared with other coated glove materials, what are the characteristics of the latex coat glove?

Why Choose Latex Coated Gloves?

Latex (natural rubber) hence its nature has high elasticity which will allow you to have an outstanding grip while working. This type of glove is particularly good for biohazard and inorganic chemical protection such as alcohols and some ketones but cannot resist organic solvents such as oils, grease, gasoline, and hydrocarbon derivatives. Additionally, this natural rubber is prone to extreme temperatures and common tears.

Besides their durability, they are the first choice to many people in numerous industries (construction, maintenance, automotive industry, gardening, medicine, agriculture) hence the reel second skin feel and high sensitivity when wearing them.
