Safety Gloves

Whether you inspecting electronic equipment, cutting meat, welding or changing your spark plugs, you hands are exposed to all types of hazards. We have a variety of safety gloves including butyl and viton gloves, coated work gloves, cold weather gloves, cotton canvas & jersey gloves, cut resistant gloves, disposable gloves & finger cots, drivers gloves, heat resistant gloves, hot mill gloves, inspection gloves, PVA, laminated and cryogenic gloves, latex/rubber gloves, leather palm gloves, linesman gloves, MIG/TIG welding gloves, neoprene gloves, nitrile gloves, PVC gloves, string gloves, anti-vibration gloves and mechanics gloves. There are many sizes, colors and cuffs available for you to make the right choice of safety glove.

Butyl & Viton Gloves

  • Butyl gloves exhibit the highest permeation resistance to gas or water vapors of any glove available today. Ideal for use in ketones (MEK, MIBK, acetone), esters (tricresyl phosphate,amyl acetate, ethyl acetate) and highly corrosive acids. Viton® gloves are made specifically for handling chlorinated and aromatic solvents. They exhibit a high degree of impermeability to these solvents and can be used in or around water and water-based solutions. Viton also has superior resistance to PCBs.

Coated Work Gloves

  • Combining a cotton or man-made knit safety glove with a coating of rubber, PVC, nitrile or vinyl gives the user great comfort and extended wear with added protection against tears and punctures. Coated work gloves are available in gauntlet, knit wrist or straight cuff and crinkle, rough, textured or web coating.

Cold Weather Gloves

  • Cold weather gloves, designed to provide added protection against extreme cold temperatures.

Cotton Canvas & Jersey Gloves

  • Cotton gloves, Canvas gloves, and Jersey Gloves available in knitwrist, band top, gauntlet and safety cuff and either plain or coated palm.

Cut Resistant Gloves

  • Cut-resistant gloves provide protection against sharp objects such as blades, glass and metals. These safety gloves utilize Kevlar®, stainless steel or special coatings to protect the user.

Disposable Gloves & Finger Cots

  • Disposable safety gloves and finger cots provide limited protection against liquids, oils, chemicals and minor injuries while offering the advantage of easy cleanup.

Drivers Gloves

  • Leather drivers gloves use pigskin, goatskin, deerskin or cowhide. Leather is used because it offers abrasion resistance, is flexible, and allows air through its pores.

Heat Resistant Gloves

  • Heat Resistant Gloves are worn for resistance to heat and light flame to 2000° F. Available materials are ceramic, cotton, cowhide, terry cloth, wool, Flextra®, and Kevlar®.

Hot Mill Gloves

  • Hot Mill Gloves are similar to Heat Resistant Gloves but are designed for light duty or residential use for temperatures up to 400°. Materials available are cotton, nitrile, terry cloth and Kevlar®.

Inspection Gloves

  • When cleanliness and tactile feel are important, inspection gloves are the choice. These safety gloves utilize acrylic, cotton, knit, nylon, polyester or polyurethane and available coatings of foam or polyurethane.

Specialty PVA, Laminated & Cryogenic Gloves    

  • Specialty PVA, Laminated & Cryogenic Gloves

Latex/Rubber Gloves

  • Natural rubber safety gloves are widely used because of their snag, puncture, abrasion and cut resistance. They are very comfortable and permit excellent dexterity. They are also an economical alternative to nitrile or neoprene. Natural rubber gloves contain proteins that can cause allergic reactions, so they are not recommended for everyone. Natural rubber also will swell and degrade when coming in contact with various animal fats, oils and solvents.

Leather Palm Gloves

  • Using leather in the palms, fingers and thumb areas with a backing material usually of canvas or cotton and either knit wrist, safety cuff and gauntlet cuff designs, these safety gloves excel in providing scuff and light cut and puncture resistance while staying cool and comfortable.

Linesmen Gloves

  • Designed specifically for use in the electrical business, linesman gloves are available in low or high voltage versions in either natural rubber or rubber lined leather with lengths from the standard safety cuff up to 18" to protect the users lower arms.

MIG/TIG Gloves

  • The most widely used leather for MIGsafety gloves and TIG safety gloves is cowhide. Other leathers used are pigskin, goatskin and deerskin. Leather is used because it offers abrasion resistance, is flexible, and allows air through its pores. The durability of leather is in direct proportion to its thickness, not to its location on the animal.

Neoprene Gloves

  • Neoprene gloves are an effective replacement for natural rubber and vinyl. Neoprene offers excellent protection against acids, alcohols, oils, solvents, esters, grease and animal fats. Neoprene gloves are resistant to snags, punctures, abrasions, and cuts. Neoprene does not contain latex proteins that can cause allergic reactions. Neoprene gloves are versatile because they are chemical-resistant and can withstand temperature fluctuations.

Nitrile Gloves

  • Nitrile gloves are the most effective replacement for natural rubber, vinyl and neoprene. Nitrile offers excellent protection against acids, bases, oils, solvents, esters, grease and animal fats. Nitrile gloves are more resistant to snags, punctures, abrasions and cuts than neoprene or Polyvinylchloride gloves. Nitrile does not contain latex proteins which can cause allergic reactions.

PVA Gloves

  • PVA Gloves

PVC Gloves

  • PVC gloves provide excellent resistance to most fats, oils, acids, caustics and petroleum hydrocarbons. They are resistant to alcohols and glycol ethers but not aromatics, aldehydes and ketones. Because PVC gloves have excellent abrasion resistance, they are ideal for use in petrochemical, construction and industrial applications.

String Gloves

  • Poly/cotton blends are commonly used in string knit gloves because of their comfort, durability and excellent laundering characteristics. By mixing polyester with cotton, shrinkage can be minimized. Certain nylons have a high resistance to abrasion and provide a synthetic string-knit glove that is lint free.

Welders Gloves

  • Welders gloves

Anti-Vibration & Mechanics Gloves

  • Anti-Vibration & Mechanics Gloves
