Various types of materials are utilized in our gloves to make maximal performance and protection. The decision of material relies upon the need and demanded properties. 


Leather is a natural material and adjusts to the encompassing temperature and environment. There are various types of leather and these various leathers have various advantages relying upon the animal and its origin and conditions. In the event that there is a requirement for a durable glove cow leather is to like. This is the thickest leather and withstands heat yet in addition moisture very well. At the point when a glove that despite everything is durable however will be utilized in dry conditions is required, a glove with pig leather is a decent decision. The pig leather has little holes from the pig’s bristle which permits the air to go through. Goat leather is delicate and flexible yet at the same time very durable. It’s a thinner leather and in this manner a decent alternative when high dexterity of the glove is required. Chow and pig leather can be part into a few layers. The inner layer is called split leather. The split leather has a sporadic and tough surface that protects and gives a decent grasp. It is very permeable and doesn’t withstand moisture well. Grain leather, then again, is the external layer of the leather and it’s more compelling against moisture. Split leather gives preferable protection against heat over grain leather and is regularly utilized in heat protection and welding gloves.


Synthetic leather can have the same look as natural leather and, partly, the same properties. There are two kinds of synthetic leather: Synthetic leather can have a similar look as natural leather and, partly, similar properties. There are two sorts of synthetic leather: Polyurethane(PU) laminated on a very thin polyester or polyamide. This material is thin but still durable with a good grip and a water-repellant surface. It has a grain leather appearance or a surface with a pattern design. Polyurethane(PU) laminated on a very thin polyester or polyamide. This material is thin yet at the same time sturdy with great grasp and water repellant surface. It has a grain leather appearance or a surface with a pattern design. Polyurethane(PU) fiber mixed with polyester or polyamide into a non-woven material. It is soft and durable with high breathability. It has a split leather appearance.


PU (Polyurethane) can be used both as coating on a knitted glove liner and as coating on thin textile materials. It is often used as a leather imitation, then it’s called synthetic leather. PU is a thin and pliable coating which gives good dexterity, good dry- and wet grip and is still flexible at low temperatures.


PVC is a plastic. Gloves in PVC has good durability and a good grip in both dry and wet environments. It protects well against several water soluble chemicals but has a limited protection against organic solvents.


Nitrile is a synthetic rubber. It is very durable and gives good grip in both dry, wet and oily environments. During the production process of foamed nitrile the solvent used evaporates and small holes are formed in the coating. These small holes allows water and vapor to pass through and makes the glove very flexible and comfortable. Nitrile withstands both oil and solvents.


Latex is natural rubber. It has very high elasticity, high durability and very good dry and wet grip. The resistance against alcohol and water soluble chemicals is high. Latex contains a natural protein which can cause allergic reactions for sensitive persons during both production and use.


Neoprene is the brand name for Chloroprene. Chloroprene is a synthetic rubber material with good heat isolation properties. It has also good protection against oil, fat, organic hydrocarbons and acids when it comes to chemical protection.


A natural textile fiber with good durability/strength and high absorption ability. Doesn’t melt when ignites which make cotton suitable as lining material in welding gloves.


A seamless knitted work glove can be coated by different materials like nitrile, PU, latex or PVC. There are different levels of coatings depending on requested properties: Palm dipped, knuckle dipped, fully dipped, fingertip coated and/or dots in the palm area. These different levels of coatings depend on how deep and in which angles the knitted liner has been dipped in the coating bath. A fully dipped glove has coating all the way up to the cuff while a fingertip coated glove has coating only on the fingertips.
