Types of gloves
GO U - section I
Anti Static Gloves:
Gloves made with fibers for the purpose of controlling static generation. Gloves with anti-static properties will not build up a static charge on items handled, but will not remove static from an item. Anti-Static gloves are commonly used in the cleanroom, semi-conductor and photographic and imaging industries. See Static-Dissipative.
Used in precision handling and assembly work. Generally, these gloves undergo a special washing and cleaning process to remove particulate matter so they don't contaminate products and products environment. These gloves are also packed in a cleanroom setting. Certain gloves have different levels (e.g. Class 100) of particulate control. Cleanroom gloves are commonly used in the cleanroom, semi-conductor and pharmaceutical industries.
An economical choice for shielding your fingers. They are generally used alone or over whole-hand gloves on individual fingers to give added protection and are more comfortable and less expensive than double gloving.
Generally worn as an underglove to avoid clamminess, perspiration and other irritations. They eliminate odors and reduce allergic reactions and rashes associated with latex and rubber gloves. Nylon glove liners are the most preferred choice due to their low moisture absorption, comfort and facilitate easier donning of overgloves.
Designed for safer and easier handling of materials. These gloves generally have a raised PVC coating in soft knits to increase grip on slippery surfaces.
Knitted gloves are unique in that they posses a high order of elasticity and recovery. In other words, unlike woven fabric which possesses a low degree of elongation, knitted gloves can be stretched to a considerable length and yet will gradually return to their original shape or conformation. It is this feature and their air permeability arising from it's looped structure that imparts to them desirable and appealing properties from the consumers point of view as:
- A high order of wrinkle resistance. Creases and wrinkles in knitted gloves can be readily smoothed by donning them.
- Ease of care. Knitted gloves and apparel launder without difficulty and generally require no ironing.
- Good drapeability. Knitted gloves conform to the hand without constricting the wearer.
- Comfort. The knitted structure is porous. It allows the skin to breathe freely. It's elasticity permits greater freedom of hand movements.
- Knitted gloves are soft and light in weight.
For many centuries, leather gloves have been used as both fashion accessories, as well as protective working tools. Leather glove pieces, dating back all the way back to 1300 B.C. have been unearthed in Egypt. The leather glove protects the hand and at the same time breathes, thus providing warmth without humidity. It molds to the hand for a custom fit, but moves with the hand for dexterity and comfort. Fine leathers have been used in glove making for centuries. Most leather gloves are made with cowhide, lambskin and pigskin. If care is taken of a high quality leather garment, it should improve with age as well as wear, and last for a very long time.

Nitrile is a soft elastic material with better puncture and abrasion resistance than latex or vinyl disposable gloves.
Nylon fiber gloves are popular for their high strength, durability, low moisture absorption and comfort.
Made from a high-density plastic and an economical choice for short term, low cost use where durability is not required.
(Abbreviation for Polyvinyl Chloride) An economical choice for short term, low cost use where durability is not required.
Static Dissipative Gloves:
Gloves made with fiber for the purpose of eliminating and controlling static. Unlike gloves with anti-static properties that will not build up a static charge on items handled, static dissipative gloves will remove static buildup from an item. Static Dissipative gloves are commonly used in the cleanroom, semi-conductor and photographic and imaging industries. See Anti-Static
The face of the cloth is characterized by small, uniform loops. Tricot gloves have a soft hand, even appearance is tightly constructed and must be sewn together with seams as in cut-and-sewn gloves. Tricot gloves are made in sizes and will not stretch to fit a hand like a knit glove.
