Coated Gloves

Coated gloves are created using a fabric stretched over a mould which is then polymer-dipped. Many different types of material can be used for both the base shell and the polymer dip. Typically, the shell can be made from cotton (low cost, comfortable), nylon (strong, cut resistant), spandex, also known as lycra or elastane (stretchy, comfortable), Kevlar (very strong, heat and cut resistant), polyester (good general properties) glass fibre (cut resistant) and acrylic (warm in cold environments). Some glove shells combine more than one of these fibres.

The dipping material can be nitrile rubber (strong, oil resistant), latex (low cost, grippy), PU (non-allergenic, puncture resistant, grippy without being sticky). Some coated gloves have raised microdots or texturing to provide additional grip.
