NBR gloves - what are they, and what are they for?
NBR work gloves are suitable for heavy work and provide high protection and comfort.
But before analysing this device in detail, it is important to clarify two points: the meaning and the use.
NBR gloves meaning
The creation of NBR gloves starts with a simple cotton glove that is half or fully impregnated in NBR nitrile rubber. This process makes the glove resistant to solvents, hydrocarbons, oils and greases, and not only that, but it also acts as a shield against abrasions.
Furthermore, if the antibacterial Sanitised® treatment is used, skin irritations can be avoided.
Thanks to the Jersey fabrication, the gloves are also fleece-lined on the inside so that they absorb sweat.
In addition to being comfortable, they can leave space for the fingers to ensure smooth movements.
One of the most popular colours in the NBR glove market is:
Blue NBR gloves
You can choose between different shades of blue and the amount of impregnating agent present, as required.
The main circumstances in which the use of NBR gloves is required are as follows:
- Working with sharp metals
- Mechanical industry
- Use of greasy and oily substances
- Road works
- Waste collection/forestry
The main importance of NBR gloves is the coverage of knuckles and palms for total protection.
Finally, many gloves available have a wrinkled surface, providing grip and slip resistance, allowing for a strong grip.
With these devices, you can have complete hand protection from abrasions and dangerous skin damage, and for more protection, you can opt for long-sleeved models that cover up to half the arm.
We recommend PVC gloves if you need a device resistant to acids and caustic substances.
On the other hand, if your search is for lighter gloves for more delicate work where tactile sensitivity is essential, you can browse our catalogue of:
- Nitrile gloves
- Latex gloves
- Leather gloves
Finally, if you are looking for gloves specifically for protection against cuts, we recommend cut-resistant gloves.
