Often times it makes sense for certain tasks to employ gloves that can be used multiple times. There are two main reasons for this; cost effectiveness and greater protection. There are a wide variety of more heavy-duty multiple use gloves out there, and this article will outline several of these along with their most common uses.
Knit work gloves
These typically come in two sizes, usually white or brown jersey knit gloves are a combination of cotton and polyester. The brown version of these gloves can be beneficial for working in dirty environments, because the stains will not show up as much. These type of knit gloves are perfectly suited for cold weather conditions because they are fleece lined, which helps to keep your hands nice and warm while working outside.
Beyond the obvious, these gloves are suitable for many more tasks in industrial and commercial kitchens. Since they have a long 12 inch cuff, these dishwashing gloves are perfect for cleaning purposes as well.
Leather work gloves
We featured a blog outlining several different types of leather work gloves recently. Most types of leather work gloves can be used in applications such as garden work or other tasks that require comfort and puncture protection.
Nitrile dipped work gloves
These gloves are constructed from a stretch nylon and are dipped partially in nitrile on the exterior. These are a clear choice for individuals who have a latex allergy but still need reliable and durable work gloves. These type of gloves are typically seamless and have an enhanced texture that provides superior grip.
Latex dipped work gloves
These type of gloves are constructed from a string polyester cotton interior and are also partially dipped on the exterior with a textured latex that provides excellent grip. These type of gloves are suitable for use in industrial and domestic applications where tasks require a strong grip.
Cut Resistant Gloves
Cut resistant gloves are manufactured with multiple different special fibers that provide the gloves with cut resistance and or puncture resistance. These fibers include polyester, nylon, dyneema, kevlar and HDPE. These gloves are designed to provide protection to individuals who work with sharp objects such as glass, metal fabrication, machine work and or work in environments where frequent hand abrasions occur.
