While work gloves protect your hands, palm coated gloves provide superior grip, are cut-resistant and provides more protection. Choose the right palm coated gloves based on application - nitrile coated gloves ensure a good grip when working in oily or greasy situations. Latex coated gloves also provide outstanding grip except when working with hydrocarbon and organic solvents (i.e. gasoline). Before you purchase work gloves, take an accurate measurement of your dominant hand to make sure you order the correct size. Round out your safety routine with safety glasses and cut-resistant gloves.
