This type of glove offers breathability and flexibility. The use of high performance fibres make some gloves capable of protecting hands against cuts.
A textile glove, usually knitted, is dipped into a polymer suspension. A thin layer of polymer is deposited on the textile substrate. This process offers better resistance to abrasion, cuts, perforation and tears while providing good dexterity.
Technical textiles are more and more common in the protection industry. They can be light, resistant, waterproof... Textile solutions are infinite and tend to be combined with nanotechnologies or biotechnologies to make them « smart ».
This manufacturing process allows for a more complex construction using, for example, different materials otherwise non compatible. Cut and sew gloves can be coated with a polymer for improved mechanical performances and impermeability to liquids.
These gloves are composed of a knitted glove combined with a leather or fabric palm ( with anti-slip grip for example). This gives you the best of both worlds: the breathability and flexibility of knitted fabric and the mechanical resistance of leather or fabric.
