  • Natural cellulose fibre that is soft and flexible.
  • Absorbs perspiration, enhancing comfort during prolonged use.
  • Needs to be mixed with polyester, as the combination enhances its durability and performance.
  • Medium mechanical resistance

  • Provides a cushioning effect and flexibility.
  • Offers good resistance to penetration and sparks, making it suitable
    for various industrial applications.
  • Leather has a lack of sensitivity on the fingertips,
    so not ideal for touchscreen applications.

  • Renowned for its heat resistance and strength
  • Lightweight, comfortable, and flame-resistant.
  • High tensile strength for exceptional cut protection.
  • Reactive to UV – not ideal for UV environments as the glove
    will change colour overtime.

Glove materials

These materials are used in crafting the gloves themselves
and are carefully selected to provide maximum protection
and performance in various environments and applications.


  • Outstanding strength, abrasion, and cut resistance.
  • Does not conduct heat, offering comfort in various conditions.
  • Provides chemical resistance
  • 15 times stronger than cross-section steel wire for a similar diameter.
  • No protection against heat, so not ideal for environments where handling of hot components is required.

Glass Fibre

  • Consists of numerous extremely fine fibres of glass.
  • Flexible material offering low to medium-cut protection.
  • Provides value for money while ensuring safety.

Steel Fibre

  • Highly flexible with superior high-cut protection.
  • Touchscreen compatibility for seamless device usage.

PU (Polyurethane)

  • Thin coating with excellent dexterity.
  • Suitable for dry, greasy, or slightly oily conditions, offering breathability and abrasion resistance.
  • The material absorbs water, so not ideal for wet handling.

Nitrile Foam

  • Breathable material with exceptional grip in diverse conditions.
  • Absorbs oil for enhanced grip and abrasion resistance.


  • Liquid-proof coating with superior abrasion and puncture resistance.
  • Ensures excellent grip in dry conditions for enhanced safety.
  • Slippery in oily conditions so not ideal for wet or oily handling.


  • Water-repellent coating with durable grip.
  • Offers protection in both dry and wet conditions, including contact heat resistance.
  • Can cause allergic reactions in people with allergies, nitrile is a smart substitute used in our range of disposable gloves.
