Gloves are protective equipment whose purpose is to cover and protect the operator’s hands.
Gloves have a wide variety of industrial applications: handling, thermal protection, protection against the cold, dielectric and chemical materials, cuts, etc.
The properties of gloves are related to the materials they are made of. The material used depends on the work to be carried out: thick leather gloves for handling; thick fabric or kevlar gloves for work in an environment where the temperature is high; latex, PVC, nitrile gloves for laboratories and the chemical industry; metal mesh gloves to avoid cuts, etc.
Before choosing protection gloves, it is important to make sure that they are resistant to the products to be handled, that they are adapted to the task to be performed, that they are comfortable and that they are certified by the appropriate standard.
