In the last few of years, PU Coated Gloves have gained enormous popularity, replacing commonplace Leather Gloves in most manufacturing plants. They come in many different liners: from low cost general purpose gloves, into exceptionally Cut Resistant Gloves for alloy handling.
Here is a list of pros to help you decide if PU Coated Gloves are right for you.
1. They’re extremely flexible:
Polyurethane coating provides amazing stretch – which gives these gloves the best touch sensitivity of any Work Glove available. Considering most hand injuries occur when workers aren’t wearing gloves, it’s hard to overstate this benefit: workers are much more likely to agree to wear their gloves on the job if they won’t inhibit movement and prevent them from doing their job. And, from a safety standpoint, worker compliance is always a huge plus.
2. They’re relatively inexpensive:
Even though PU Coated Gloves won’t stand the test of time, nowadays, general purpose polyurethane coated gloves can be purchased for as little as 70 cents per pair; that’s roughly 1/3 of the cost of an inexpensive general purpose work glove! Crazy cheap, right? This means that although you’ll have to replace them more often than other gloves, the cost per pair is extremely reasonable.
